Photo Gallery: ZZ Top with Cheap Trick at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre

| September 8, 2019

That “lil old band from Texas” found its way into the southwest suburbs of Chicago Saturday. ZZ Top has hit the road in celebration of 50 years as a band. The trio, know for excessive facial hair and boogie-infused blues, plowed through five decades of hits and crowd favorites, delivered with a charming dollop of laidback-ness and deft showmanship. Also on board for the evening were Rockford imports Cheap Trick, who also have multiple decades of hits under their collective belts as well. Judging by the median age of those in attendance, ’70s FM radio can still pack em’ in. In addition, sometimes the big rock show is reason enough to take the financial hit on the early bird discount and miss out on the occasional blue plate special.
