I like ZZ Top and all, but not enough to sit through Radio Rock Band #27 and Female Country Singer #34. (Seriously though ZZ fuckin' Top shouldn't tour with such generic mediocrity.)

Gretchen Wilson does more than 3 Doors Down.

it makes sense when you consider the audience


older acts like ZZ Top basically have 3 options for support acts that will sell:
1)more old bands
2)"VH1" rock bands(any modern rock that attracts 30-somethings)
3)country acts that attract those same 30-somethings



throw in REO Speedwagon and they've covered all the bases

agreed although I think 3DD toured with Skynyrd before and honestly that seems to justify that move

I love ZZ Top & 3 Doors Down, and I'm so damn pissed they aren't hitting NY. They have 2 days off between CT & PA, hoping they add something in the state.

Totally hitting this up. I never cared to see ZZ Top or 3 Doors Down on their own tours, but together it should be worth it. Considering it'll be in Orlando and then Clearwater the day after (all three perform as apart of a post-Ray's game concert), I'll have options.

I don't understand the notion of not wanting to go see a band because of lousy openers. Just show up late.
