House of Blues Lights Up Sunset Strip With 20th Anniversary Party

House of Blues filled The Sunset Strip with a firey spectacle this week as the national concert venue celebrated 20 years and 20,000 performances with a fireworks display, celebrity party and concert featuring ZZ Top.

Blues Brothers Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi  reunited for the Dec. 4 event and set the stage for a massive fireworks show outside of the iconic venue. After the show, guests were treated to a performance by ZZ Top, Flogging Molly and Deer Tick inside the venue.

The event kicked off a 20 month celebration, which will also include 20th Anniversary concert tours with a portion of ticket sales from these concerts benefiting the International House of Blues Foundation's "Action For The Arts" program, which encourages creative expression through art and promotes cultural understanding.
