The European Tour 2009 was a concert tour by rock band ZZ Top. The tour's concerts were performed in arenas and festivals from May through June 2009, consisting of 14 shows. Band members Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill dressed in black biker jackets, along with similar hats and boots.

Concert overview[edit]

Out of the 14 shows performed, each had a similar set list, with 17-20 songs performed. The concerts usually began with techno music played through the PA system, during which the band would walk on stage and begin the show.

Main set[edit]

Each show opened with a performance of "Got Me Under Pressure." Following "Got Me Under Pressure," the band performed "Waitin' for the Bus," "Jesus Just Left Chicago," "Pincushion," "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide," "Cheap Sunglasses," and "I Need You Tonight." "Foxy Lady" was included in many shows, as well as "Heard It on the X" and "Just Got Paid." "Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man," and "Legs" from Eliminator were also featured.

Encores[edit]

The encores typically started with a medley of "La Grange," "Sloppy Drunk Blues," and "Bar-B-Q." The show usually closed out with "Tush." "Jailhouse Rock" and "Tube Snake Boogie" were also occasionally performed.

Additional songs[edit]

A total of 22 different songs were played throughout the tour.[1] Muddy Waters covers of "Rollin' Stone" and "Still a Fool" were played occasionally. "Future Blues" by Willie Brown was performed in many shows.
