Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, ZZ Top, are coming to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Wolfman Jack Stage on Wednesday, Aug. 6
“ZZ Top’s songs are some of the most recognizable on the planet,” says Sturgis Buffalo Chip President, Rod Woodruff. “We are thrilled they asked us if they could perform at the Chip this year. Their fans are our fans, and nobody rocks the stage like they do.”
The band has performed before millions of fans throughout North America and around the world, touting their iconic beards, cars, girls and that magic keychain. They’ve been known to show up to performances driving some of the world’s most exotic and beautiful machines–one year leading a parade down I-90 on the way to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
Chip Fans can look forward to letting their engines roar as ZZ Top pulls out hits like “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Legs” and “Sharp Dressed Man.”
Hot country duo, Florida Georgia Line, will take to the stage prior to the Aug. 6 ZZ Top performance. The band skyrocketed to fame since releasing consecutive, multi-week No. 1 smashes, broke the record for the longest No. 1 hit on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart and has since won eight top music industry awards including Vocal Duo of the Year.
