SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — More than 50 years after their first gig, that little ol’ band from Texas is heading back out on the road.
Over the next 11 months, ZZ Top will be on an extensive North American tour.
The tour is called ‘A Celebration With ZZ Top,’ and it begins July 16, in Manchester, Iowa.
Billy, Dusty and Frank will spread some Texas boogie through the U.S. and Canada until the tour wraps up next May in Newfoundland.
They’ll do five dates in their home state:
November 27 and 28th in Lubbock
December 8 in Corpus Christi
December 11 in El Paso
December 12 in Midland
The last in person appearance for ZZ Top was on Valentine’s Day 2020.
That was just before the band launched its 50th anniversary tour which was postponed when the pandemic shutdowns went into effect.
Ticket information is on the band’s website zztop.com .
ZZ Top formed in Houston in 1969. Their first album called “ZZ Top’s First Album” was recorded in Tyler, Texas and released in 1971. Their most recent studio album “La Futura” came out in 2012.
The band has sold more than 25 million albums in the United States and 50 million worldwide.
