ZZ Top is coming to Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Event Center in Tampa on Nov. 7.

That little ol’, very-bearded, band from Texas wrapped up a critically-acclaimed 50th anniversary tour, with support from Cheap Trick, mere months before COVID-19 axed all future live shows.

Tickets to see ZZ Top at the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Event Center have already gone on sale. Individual seats are sold out, but standing room tickets are still available for $60 a piece.

Billy F. Gibbons (Hendrix’s personal favorite guitarist, proof below), bassist Dusty Hill, and the beardless Frank Beard are no strangers to Florida, though, having stopped in the Sunshine State at least once a year since 2010. Every time the band arrives in Tampa, the setting almost always changes—whether rocking a festival at Busch Gardens, or co-headlining with John Fogerty at Coachman Park, ZZ Top has torn down pretty much every concert venue in Tampa Bay. And its about to take on a brand new one that hardly anybody has played in.
