The band’s set includes “Just Got Paid,” taken from 1972 album Rio Grande Mud, “Sharp Dressed Man,” appears on their 1983 album Eliminator, and hit song “Legs,” which was released as the fourth single in May 1984, more than a year after the Eliminator came out. It reached number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and the dance mix version of the song peaked at number 13 on the dance charts.
Meanwhile, ZZ Top have released an official music video performance for their 1981 classic “Tube Snake Boogie,” which is taken from their upcoming 11-track live album Raw that is set for release on July 22.
