Entertainment is thrilled to announce two sideshows for ZZ Top in March. In

Dead Daisies, featuring Jon Stevens and guitarist David Lowy. Tickets go on

F Gibbons is one of America’s finest blues guitarists while Dusty Hill on bass
and Frank Beard on drums (ironically the only member without a beard) provide
the ultimate rhythm section support.
Top’s image has been as unchanging and memorable as their music. The respected
Texan trio have been together for more than 40 years and were inducted by Keith
Richards into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. ZZ Top are a solid

“We’re the same three guys, bashing out the same three
chords. The band’s mantra remains the same: Tone. Taste. Tenacity,” says Billy F Gibbons, guitarist extraordinaire.
ZZ Top for these two shows is Australian rock band The Dead Daisies. The Dead
Daisies feature Jon Stevens on vocals and David Lowy on guitar. Jon Stevens is
one of Australia’s most popular and respected singers. He has had a remarkable
career, from lead singer of rock band Noiseworks to successful solo artist. Jon
and David first met in 2006 but it wasn’t until 2012 that they started writing
songs together. With a mutual love of classic late ‘70s and early ‘80s rock and
soul, The Dead Daisies were born. “Bad
Company meets Foreigner via The Faces kind of vibe, big choruses, powerful
melodies and strong hooks,” says Jon.
