ZZ Top and Jeff Beck at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater – August 24th, 2014

Last night was packed with two acts that completely shaped the landscape of classic rock as we know it.  The iconic Jeff Beck has touched so many different bands that you could almost do a version of “7 Degrees of Bacon” with him.  Then you have ZZ Top who brought a southern blues aspect to classic rock that has been a staple on radio airwaves for decades.  It was amazing to see these guitar aficionado’s completely shine, showing they are masters at their craft as they flew through their sets.  The guitar tone from Jeff Beck had such a modern and fat chunky sound, he completely lead his entire band through each song.  It was impressive to see an act that really didn’t need a vocalist, Jeff Beck is one of the only axe men I’ve seen live that literally makes his guitar talk.  Then you have ZZ Top which is a threesome packed to the brims with so much rhythm and riffs that they can amaze a crowd better then most 5 piece acts can manage to do.  It was truly a night filled of guitar awesomeness!  Do yourself a favor and see this tour because the encore will not disappoint, as both acts take the stage to trade riffs in a performance that will leave you wanting to hear more.
