Texas rockers ZZ Top and English guitar trailblazer Jeff Beck teamed up for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame jam in 2009, and they've been itching to tour together ever since. In fact, Beck calls Top's Billy Gibbons "the professor of grunge," while Gibbons dubs Beck as "the curator of crunch." Fans can expect a full set from each act, and a flame-throwing finale that brings them both back to the stage for some sure-fire shredding. ZZ Top, the famously bearded "little ol' band from Texas," is known for classics like "Legs" and "Sharp Dressed Man," while the Grammy-winning Beck, who started his career with The Yardbirds, is one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock history, ranked among the top five in Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."

Quotes & Highlights
Legendary blues-rock band, George Thorogood and the Destroyers will perform during The Greek Theatre’s 80th Anniversary season with special guests Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Charlie Musselwhite.
George Thorogood and the Destroyers released their self-titled debut album in 1977 and quickly established themselves as radio favorites and as a touring machine. Described as “the world’s greatest bar band,” the group has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide and has had tremendous success with Thorogood’s original compositions like “You Talk Too Much,” “I Drink Alone” and of course “Bad To The Bone;” he’s also had hits with covers of iconic blues-rock songs like “Who Do You Love” (Bo Diddley), “Move It On Over” (Hank Williams) and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” (John Lee Hooker). Thorogood’s Gold-certified Greatest Hits: 30 Years Of Rock was Billboard’s #1 Blues Album for 2004 and 2005, and the band’s 2006 album, The Hard Stuff, reached #2. 2009’s The Dirty Dozen debuted at #1 on the Blues chart, fueled by the album’s #1 single, “Tail Dragger.”
On their 17th studio album, 2120 South Michigan Avenue, to be released July 12 by Capitol/EMI, Thorogood and the Destroyers pay tribute to their Chess Records heroes, including many of Thorogood’s legendary mentors who helped to launch his career in rock & roll. Named for the address of Chess Records’ Chicago headquarters, _2120 _features Thorogood’s raw, rocking turn on classics by a who’s-who of the blues, including Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, and other Chess greats, plus new original songs written by Thorogood, the album’s producer Tom Hambridge, and Richard Fleming. The album’s guests include 2010 GRAMMY Award winners Buddy Guy and Charlie Musselwhite.
