Rock And Roll icons ZZ TOP are on their way to celebrate their 50th anniversary by going on a huge concert tour that will take them across North America this 2020 year. Their 50th anniversary tour will begin on April 29th and will take them across Canada until they end the trek on May 24th. Two different bands will support ZZ Top on specific dates; CHEAP TRICK and LYNYRD SKYNYRD will trade off shows with them, and you can see who exactly which band will be with them on which dates on the event lists found below. Band members Billy F. Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard have been the main-stay of ZZ Top, who have held the same line-up longer than any other band in their genre. Back in 1969, after the end of THE MOVING SIDEWALKS, which was Billy’s Houston psych-rock band, the singer/guitarist formed ZZ TOP, linking up with drummer Beard and bass-guitarist Hill, both from the Dallas-based band THE AMERICAN BLUES. Fifteen studio albums, 30 million record sales and five decades later, “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas” is still going strong, playing timeless hits like “La Grange”, “Legs”, “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Tush” to audiences the world over.
Gibbons looked back at the history of the band, while also looking forward to the “50th Anniversary Texas Bash” dates. “It’s been five decades, and I think we’re starting to get pretty good at this,” he said. “We’re just as excited to be back in Texas this May playing our bluesy kind of rock as when started with in ’69. The beards, Frank excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed much and we’re keeping it that way.”
