ZZ Top have announced their 50th anniversary tour.
The tour gets going on August 16th in Ridgefield, Washington and runs through October 20th in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Singer and guitarist Billy Gibbons says, "It’s been five decades, and I think we’re starting to get pretty good at all this! We’re truly excited to be appearing across the continent this summer and fall, playing our bluesy kind of rock like we started in ’69. The beards, [drummer] Frank's [Beard] excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed. We're keeping it that way.”
Cheap Trick will open 25 of the shows, with Lynyrd Skynyrd on two others.
