A-how-how-how-hi again, ZZ Top!

I was surprised (but happy, obviously) to hear that those good ol’ boys from Texas were returning to the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre two years after their their last (their first?) time in Victoria.

It was interesting to see the evolution of the themeing, from Dusty Beard’s tiki-themed drumkit to two stacks of amazing pink and green amps.

Oo! And their gigantic motorcycle exhaust pipe mic stands lit up in different colours this time around. Very cool.

The gents were just as excellent, the audience just as loud, and the feeling in the air just as great as 2014.

Thanks for the return engagement, ZZ Top! Same time in 2018? 😉
