ZZ TOP AND GREGG ALLMAN U.S. TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

“That Little ol’ Band from Texas” and the legendary Gregg Allman are back at it. Having shared the stage many times throughout the decades, ZZ Top and Gregg Allman are set to hit the road together this year, on a tour that will take them from the Midwest to the east coast, and all the way out to the western states, including California.

ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons commented on the bond his band shares with Allman and the upcoming tour, “The history with ZZ Top and Gregg Allman together goes way back to around the time the earth cooled.  The double lineup makes for a killer combination so buckle up and let's have a party!  Rock on!”

Having formed more than four decades ago in the Houston area of Texas, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees ZZ Top continue to be a relentless touring machine. The bearded duo of singer/guitarist Billy Gibbons and bassist/singer Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard, aka “the man with no beard” have consistently rocked audiences with their brand of chrome-plated, electrified dirty blues. Hot rods, buzzards, B.B.Q., cacti, furry guitars and alluring women are some the many images that have become synonymous with the ZZ Top experience but their blues/rock sonic skew has kept them in forefront for longer than any US-based band. Audiences can look forward to seeing them belt out timeless hits such as “Legs,” “La Grange,” Sharp Dressed Man,” “Tush,” and many more from their 15 studio albums.

As a founding member of the legendary Allman Brothers Band and in his own storied solo career, Gregg Allman has long been a gifted natural interpreter of the blues, his soulful distinctive voice one of the defining sounds in the history of American music. Also a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Allman more recently received the “Living Legend” award from Classic Rock Magazine, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the ABB. He continues to captivate audiences, as evidenced in his recent Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA live DVD/CD package, containing crowd favorites like “Statesboro Blues,” “Melissa,” “Queen of Hearts” and “I’m No Angel.”
