ZZ Top: Billy Gibbons announces New Year’s Eve livestream concert

ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons will lead a livestream concert with blues supergroup The Jungle Show from Antone’s Nightclub in Austin, TX on New Year’s Eve.

Gibbons will be joined by Jimmie Vaughan, Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton, Sue Foley and Mike Flanigin for the sixth annual event.

“For five years consecutive years we’ve looked forward to putting the Jungle Show together between Christmas and New Year’s Eve,” says Gibbons. “It’s been a great way for all of us to cap the old year and bring in the new in rockin’ style. Despite the reality of 2020, we were determined to keep our streak going so we’ve decided to go viral — the good kind of viral — and offer the Jungle Show to the world beyond Austin.”

The livestream event will take place on December 31 at 8:00PM (20:00) in four time zones around the world: EST and PST in North America, GMT in London and AEST in Sydney, Australia.

Packages start at $25, and the performance will be available for 48 Hours VOD after the initial broadcast; for full details, visit

Gibbons and ZZ Top will be up for a 2021 Grammy Award next month in the Best Music Film category with their 2019 documentary, “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas.”

ZZ Top delivered the No. 8 Rock News Story Of The Year and were named the No. 4 Rock News Artist Of The Year as part of the 2020 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
