About the Performance

Two titans of American classic rock, ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, return to Ravinia on their co-headlining The Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour. ZZ Top has been at it for well over a half century delivering rock, blues, and boogie on stage and in the studio. With iconography as distinctive as their sound, the band is globally recognized for their beards, hotrod cars, and spinning guitars, all of which transcend geography and language. They have sold hundreds of millions of records over the course of their career, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms.

As Lynyrd Skynyrd celebrates the 50th anniversary of the band’s critically acclaimed debut album, they resonate as deeply with their multi-generational fan base today as when they first emerged out of Jacksonville, Florida in 1973. With a catalog of over 60 albums, billions of streams, and tens of millions of records sold, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remain a cultural icon that appeal to all generations. The rock and roll powerhouse continually tours, and as Ronnie Van Zant shares, “it’s about the legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and what it stands for, what the fans are all about. There’s nothing like getting out there playing a great show with Skynyrd and seeing people love this music.”

Delivering a fresh, vibrant take on progressive rock, the four-piece Ur Mom is inspired by folk, funk, rock, and the blues. Raised in Park Ridge, IL, these soulful suburbanites are eager to bring back the importance of raw rock and roll—no backing tracks, just pure talent. They were the runners-up in the 17th Annual Bitter Jester Music Fest (2nd Place out of 24), where their lead singer also won “Vocalist of the Year” at the festival’s Grand Finale.
