Huntington, N.Y. (Tuesday, August 11, 2015) – The Paramount is pleased to announce a special last-minute surprise summer concert with Rock and Roll Hall of Famers – ZZ TOP: Presented by 103.1 MAX FM. Set to take the stage in Huntington at 8pm on August 23rd, ZZ TOP last played The Paramount with 2 back to back sold out shows in November 2013, and this return to Long Island is an exciting opportunity for classic rock fans to see this legendary band one more time live in concert!
ZZ TOP a/k/a “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact and in 2004 the Texas trio was be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course, there are only three of them – Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard — but it’s still a remarkable achievement that they’re still very much together after more than 40 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio. “Yeah,” says Billy, guitarist extraordinaire, “we’re the same three guys, bashing out the same three chords.” With the release of each of their albums the band has explored new ground in terms of both their sonic approach and the material they’ve recorded. ZZ TOP is the same but always changing.
