AUDIO: ZZ Top rock Tush on Greatest Hits Live package

ZZ Top deliver a high-energy version of their 1975 classic, “Tush”, as the latest preview to their forthcoming package, “Greatest Hits Live.”

Due September 9, the set presents material recorded over the course of several tours in cities all around the world.

“Tush” was captured live in Chicago, IL for inclusion on the group’s first official live album after 45 years that also sees guest appearances by Jeff Beck on their 1985 single, “Rough Boy”, and on a performance of the 1947 Merle Travis classic, “Sixteen Tons.”

“We spend the biggest stretch of every year out on the road, whippin’ wire, poundin’ skin, and rockin’ it way up,” says Billy F. Gibbons. “This is the true document of life de la ZZ. In an abstract surrealism style, this collection is a definitive chronicle of the band hangin’ together for four plus deluxe decades, getting down to do what we get to do. Enjoy and listen to loudness!”

ZZ Top’s “Greatest Hits Live” will be available on CD, gatefold LP & digitally through all streaming & download stores.

The group are currently playing shows on an extensive tour of North America, with dates scheduled into late November.
