ZZ Top at Lila Arena in Karlstad, Sweden
ZZ Top were coming to Sweden in June 2009. I rented a car from Helsinki with my son Joel, we took a ferry to Stockholm and drove to Karlstad to meet Billy F Gibbons.
During our stay, we enjoyed Billy’s generous hospitality and had lunch together. A number of interesting conversations regarding guitars and music were had during the day, and after the show as well.
At Lila Arena, we saw a ZZ Top show as rocking and soulful as ever.
Billy’s longtime guitar technician Elwood Francis arranged the meeting, and thanks to him we had a really wonderful time in Karlstad.
Electric Blue light Raya was played in opening song in every gig of the tour.
