ZZ Top: Civic Center, Lake Charles LA
David Sinclair, The Times, 4 February 1986

With a new stage-show and a revamped repertoire incorporating much of the material from Afterburner, the Texans captivated and delighted an 8,000 capacity crowd of their neighbours, using many imaginative and typically comic touches to highlight their increasingly sophisticated power rock format.
