September 12, 2017, 4 months ago
On Sunday night (September 10th), ZZ Top played the Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land, the first big rock show in the Houston area since Hurricane Harvey impacted the city, reports Chron.com.
Every time the trio plays the Bayou City it's a homecoming. ZZ Top is arguably the biggest rock act to come from the city.
Sunday's concert was a little more poignant than past shows considering the recent weather woes the city has endured. The band's appearance brought a touch of needed escapism to the lives of fans who likely have sheet rock and soggy furniture laying in a heap next to the front curb.
On Sunday afternoon, hours before the show started. guitarist and singer Billy Gibbons spoke about being in California on tour and watching his hometown get inundated with band after band of pummelling rain. Gibbons said he finds its rewarding that ZZ Top is the first big rock band to play Houston, post-Harvey.
