Other than the shortness (1:15) of the show, it was a good performance. My problem is with the Meet & Greet package. (Diamond Package) Of the features, listed separately were (1) picture with the band and (2) "Meet & Greet" with the band. We were lined up and rushed into a tour bus, having no time to even say hello. The guy taking the picture did not even look at the camera's screen to ensure it came out okay. Then we were rushed out of the bus and sent on our way. We were told it was "not an autograph session." While an autograph was not promised, the point of telling us this was that you get in they take the picture and then you get out! COMPLETE SCAM!!! They refused to refund my Meet & Greet part of the purchase, so now I'm disputing with the credit card company. This is a COMPLETE SCAM. I could have had the same exact experience by having someone take my picture standing in front of the stage while they performed. It would have been no less interaction (i.e. "meet & greet") with the band that way.

POP REVIEW: After all these years, ZZ Top still spins a satisfying show
12:00 AM CDT on Monday, July 16, 2007

By MATT WEITZ

Sunday night at Smirnoff Music Centre was as good a time as any to check in on a certain brand of Southern/Texas music, as an all-afternoon-and-evening bill of acts associated with the genre held forth.

One-time local heroes the Old 97's (the band is still deservedly respected, but no longer really cut from Dallas cloth) gave a good account of themselves but still come off better as a bar band. Their performance reminded one of a long-ago (when the venue was known as Starplex) festival wherein Wilco, leaning into a blazing setting sun, struggled to fill the vastness of the concrete-and-earth bowl with something approaching intimacy. To their credit, the 97's did a much better job.

The headliner was "that lil' ol' band from Texas," ZZ Top, and it says something about changing times that one of the bands that pioneered the concept of the "supertour" (the mid-'70s Tejas tour) now pulls in only 12,500 people at a show in their home state.

But they were 12,500 rock-ribbed fans, and if the production values were a bit diminished (no vultures or longhorn steers onstage), the show was still deeply satisfying.

Bassist Dusty Hill's and guitarist Billy Gibbons' beards were still luxuriant affairs that checked in at more than a foot long, and their costuming went well with the music sort of a blend of mariachi waiter and desert rat. Frank Beard, ironically the only member without a beard, rounds things out on drums.
