ZZ Top is hosting the La Grange Fest, the band’s very own music festival, later this month in Austin, TX and they have announced another special guest: SLIPKNOT frontman COREY TAYLOR. The ZZ Top- hosted music festival takes place on Saturday, October the 22nd at Austin’s ‘The Backyard’. Joining COREY on the line up are label mates LYNYRD SKYNYRD.
Billy Gibbons, on discussing the upcoming show, had this to add: “We’re looking forward to having a good time with all of our friends and fans on the 22nd. Down Austin way is gonna be the place to be that day, doncha know…”.
This solo show at La Grange Fest is not a one off performance for COREY. He has just announced a raft of solo shows in the US and Canada – and in case you missed it, the funny frontman recorded a video to promote his solo shows, which as predicted, is hilarious. Check it out below:
“An Evening with Corey Taylor” concerts will feature COREY performing an acoustic set along with a spoken word segement – he’ll also be answering a fan Q&A. Fingers crossed for some UK dates!
