ZZ Top announce 50th Anniversary Tour w/ Cheap Trick


Texas trio ZZ Top are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and will be on the road as part of that celebration. “It’s been five decades, and I think we’re starting to get pretty good at all this,” says frontman Billy Gibbons. “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, Frank’s excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed.  We’re keeping it that way.”

The tour kicks off August 16 in Ridgefield, WA and wraps up October 20 in West Palm Beach, FL, with Cheap Trick joining them for many of the shows and Lynyrd Skynyrd playing with them at a pair of California dates.  The tour hits the NYC area on September 19 at Jones Beach with Cheap Trick opening. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, April 19 at 10 AM, with a Tres Hombres presale starting April 16 at 10 AM. All dates are listed, along with a stream of their classic 1973 LP, Tres Hombres, below.

In 2019 it’s easy to take ZZ Top for granted, but they are true rock and roll legends whose songs, stage show and guitar playing are truly influential and legendary. Take it from Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell and Power Trip, who both recently put the bearded ones in their bag at Amoeba Records:
