Long beards will be back in fashion next month when blues rock band ZZ Top returns to Avila Beach.
Known for their iconic facial hair and instrumental prowess, ZZ Top guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard have been thrilling audiences since the early 1970s.
ZZ Top’s third album, 1973’s “Tres Hombres,” put the Texas trio on the map. In the following decade, three albums — 1981’s “El Loco,” 1983’s “Eliminator” and 1985’s “Afterburner” — cemented their fame.
ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
Tickets for the all-ages outdoor show cost $40 to $300. For information, call 805-540-3508 or visit www.avilabeachconcerts.com.
