ZZ Top Reintroducing 'Heaven... Or Houston' Into Live Set

In a recent interview with RollingStone.com, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top said 

"The good news is we're far away from those crazy flood waters, we're also anxiously anticipating bringing a little joy to a hard-hit region. We had already planned to make a tour date outside of Houston, right in an outlying community called Sugar Land, Texas. That was also hit hard. But the good news is that the water is receding. The plan is to stick to our guns, charge ahead and pull the show together the best we can. With the promoters and the sponsors of the event, we're going to make a $100,000 donation to the relief fund, just to get something started on that level.

The show he's referring to is the night AFTER the one in DFW. They're playing the Pavilion at the Irving Music Factory on 9/9. 

The following night, September 10th, ZZ Top returns to nearby Sugar Land for a previously scheduled concert at the Smart Financial Centre. The show has now become a fundraiser: ZZ Top are working with the venue to donate $100,000 from the show to assist flood relief. Good on them!

Billy Gibbons also talked about reintroducing an old favorite into their setlist...

"We've even thought about resurrecting one of our old songs, 'Heaven, Hell or Houston' We're gonna leave out the middle part because it's already been there."
