The tour includes a couple appearances in the band’s home state with Guns N’ Roses — on September 6 in El Paso and September 8 in San Antonio.
“We’re looking forward to performing in some of our favorite spots says ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons. “After four decades, we believe we’re beginning to get the hang of this whole rock and roll thing, so a mighty good time will be enjoyed by all.”
The upcoming leg of ZZ Top’s Tonnage Tour includes 50 shows across the country. The trek got its name from a cover of the Tennessee Ernie Ford hit entitled, “Sixteen Tons” the band played with guitar legend Jeff Beck, which was included on the group’s recent album, Live! Greatest Hits from Around the World.
