ZZ Top to perform on Conan

ZZ Top will perform on the TBS late night show Conan on Wednesday, October 5.

The Texas trio will be on hand to promote the recently-released package, “Greatest Hits Live.”

The 15-song set presents material recorded over the course of several tours in cities all around the world, including guest appearances by Jeff Beck on their 1985 single, “Rough Boy”, and on 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 guitarist 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 are currently playing shows on an extensive tour of North America, with dates scheduled into late November.
