A band whose facial hair might be more famous than their music, the makers of “Sharp Dressed Man” were on tour this year with Aerosmith before Steven Tyler took a doozy of a fall and broke his shoulder. Now with some time on their hands, ZZ Top has embarked on a solo run that finds them at the Beacon Theatre on Sept. 18 and the House Of Blues in Atlantic City on Sept. 19. Tickets start at $39.50 and $45, respectively. zztop.com.
