ZZ Top Announces 50th Anniversary Tour Including Local Date

ZZ Top will be celebrating their 50th anniversary with a world tour this year, including extensive legs in Europe and the United States.

The band formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas, and following a few initial lineup tweaks, the classic trio of Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard have all been going strong in the band for 50 years. Along the way, ZZ Top have released such classic hits as “La Grange”, “Gimme All Your Lovin’”, and “Legs”, among others, and they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

The trek includes a stop at Ocean City, MD BikeFest on Friday, September 13th.

“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,” said Gibbons in a statement. “The beards, Frank’s excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed. We’re keeping it that way.”

Tickets for most of the U.S. shows go on sale this Friday, April 12th at this location, and will also be available via StubHub.
