ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd will perform as the headliners at MGK’s Big Gig 2023 as part of the Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour.

The annual celebration of Philly’s best classic rock station will take place at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion on the Camden Waterfront on September 17, 2023. Tickets are on sale now to see the tour’s only stop in the Philadelphia area.

ZZ Top

“That Little Ol’ Band From Texas” formed in 1969, and they exploded four years later with the release of Tres Hombres featuring hits like “La Grange” and “Waitin’ For The Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago.”

Eliminator in 1983 featured some of their most recognizable hits like “Gimme All Your Lovin’” and “Sharp Dressed Man.”

When you think of ZZ Top, you probably picture a bunch of impressively groomed beards and fine-tuned automobiles. Billy Gibbons has the rock star look about him, and he’ll certainly rock the stage at Big Gig like it’s still the 1970s.

The Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour

The two Rock & Roll giants have begun the cleverly-named “Sharp Dressed, Simple Man Tour.” The name is an homage to one hit single from each of the two bands.  Their first tour together will include stops in 22 cities in the United States. They’ll save the best for last, as MGK Big Gig will be their final show.

ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, with special guest Uncle Kracker, kicked off the tour on Friday, July 21 at the iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida. The setlists from both bands included some of their biggest hits. However, they also did an excellent job of mixing in some of their lesser-known work.

Their trip to Freedom Mortgage Pavilion in September will continue a tradition that’s become the signature event of 102.9 WMGK.

Take a peek at the ZZ Top setlist from the tour’s first show to warm up. Then, move over to hear Lynyrd Skynyrd’s setlist next.

  • 1. Got Me Under Pressure


    She likes the art museum, she don’t like Pavlov’s dog
    She fun at the mind museum, she likes it in a London fog
    She don’t like other women, she likes whips and chains
    She likes cocaine and filppin’ out with great Danes
    She’s about all I can handle, it’s too much for my brain
