ZZ Top have announced dates for an extensive 50th Anniversary US Tour. The band will launch a late summer/early fall run in Ridgefield, WA on August 16, joined by Cheap Trick for most of the run while Lynyrd Skynyrd will appear on a pair of early dates.

“It’s been five decades, and I think we’re starting to get pretty good at this!,” says guitarist Billy Gibbons. “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.”

Tickets for the newly-announced 50th anniversary US dates – which will follow a lengthy spring/summer European tour – will go on sale starting Friday, April 12 at 10 AM local time. See the full list of tour dates here.
