In the video posted on YouTube, the crowd is seen going wild, and at the end of their last number, they go even wilder.

The American rock band was formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. They released their first album called ZZ Top's First Album in 1971.

“B.B. King laid quite a simplistic statement on me: Learn to play what you want to hear. When you’re trying to learn an instrument, chances are you find yourself at the feet of a teacher who may have an idea of what you should learn. But if you learn to play what you want to hear in your head, you are steps ahead,” said Gibbons.

The talented trio started with a blues-inspired rock. They later incorporated new wave, punk rock and dance-rock by using synthesizers.

Their songs have a reputation for containing funny lyrics bound with ironic statements and insinuation.

The band's album Eliminator, which was released in 1983, was their top-selling album, having sold more than 10 million copies in the United States.

ZZ Top had sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. In 2014, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
