    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 gets started with a three-show stand May 17th through 19th in the band’s home state of Texas, followed by a six-week European jaunt that kicks off in June, and then a two-month U.S. tour.

    The summer/fall U.S. leg launches August 16th in Ridgefield, Washington, and wraps October 20th in West Palm Beach, Florida.

    The three May dates in Texas will also feature Bad Company and Cheap Trick, while Cheap Trick will support most of the summer/fall U.S. tour. Lynyrd Skynyrd will also appear at select dates.

    “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.”
