ZZ Top will celebrate its 35th anniversary with a North American summer tour. The shows begin June 25 at Kay Yaeger Coliseum in Wichita Falls, Texas, and will include visits to arenas, amphitheaters, fairs, festivals and casinos.
The recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees have dates on the books through September, concluding with a Sept. 24-25 stand at the Las Vegas Hilton. Preceding the tour is a previously announced June 6 engagement at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas with Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, B.B. King and Buddy Guy, as part of the Crossroads Guitar Festival to benefit Crossroads Centre Antigua, the treatment and education center founded by Clapton in 1997.
ZZ Top, which boasts founding members Frank Beard, Billy F. Gibbons and Dusty Hill, claims to be the longest running “intact” road show in rock history. The summer tour is support of the band’s latest RCA release, “Mescalero.” A comprehensive boxed set, “Chrome, Smoke & BBQ,” was released last October.
