The show will be on Sept. 14, and is part of a summer tour for the two legendary rock bands.
When you think about it, it’s pretty remarkable in this day and age that both bands are still on the road with their original lineups.
Aerosmith did splinter at the end of the ‘70s, with guitarist Joe Perry putting his own band together, the Joe Perry Project, and doing some solo work.
Rythm guitar player Brad Whitford also toured and recorded with former Ted Nugent frontman Derek St. Holmes, and their Whitford/St. Holmes Band did score a moderate hit with “Shy Away.”
But the Boston band eventually reunited and rediscovered success in a big way, and have pretty much been intact for the bulk of their musical history, which spans well over 30 years.
As for ZZ Top, it seems like the blues rock trio has always been around. And guitar player Billy Gibbons is as unsung a blues guitar player as there is in the business, but one of the best at his craft.
The bearded Texans are already on the road, and will hit Europe before returning to hook up with Aerosmith. The twin-bill kicks off June 27 in Virginia and wraps up Sept. 16, two days after the MSG show.
