2019 European Tour Set To Celebrate 50 Years With ZZ Top

2019 European Tour Set To Celebrate 50 Years With ZZ Top

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees ZZ Top's 1969 formation in the Houston area of Texas. The blues-rock stalwarts are set to launch an extensive summer tour in Europe in connection with the celebration of that unparalleled milestone. ZZ Top will perform at the SSE Arena Wembley on 12 July 2019. Tickets go on-sale on 16 November at 10am at www.livenation.co.uk.

The tour is slated to get underway in early June in Scandinavian countries and heads to central Europe thereafter, concluding in the UK in late July. While the bulk of the band's European tour stops will be announced in the near future, those already on the books include:

U.K. & European Tour Dates:

19 June 2019 - Prague, Czech Republic - Prague Rocks

05 July 2019 - Barcelona, Spain - Barcelona Rock Fest

12 July 2019 - London, UK - SSE Arena Wembley

It is projected that the legendary trio, consisting of the same lineup that has been together for all the intervening decades -- singer/guitarist Billy F Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard (aka "the man with no beard") -- will perform in concert in a dozen countries over the course of four weeks.

ZZ Top is notable for having the most consistently stable lineup in the history of rock music. Soon after the dissolution of Gibbons' Houston psych rock band Moving Sidewalks, he formed ZZ Top, with Hill and Beard from the Dallas-based band American Blues. Fifteen studio albums, 30 million record sales and 50 years later, "That Little Ol' Band From Texas" are still going strong, playing timeless hits like "La Grange," "Legs," "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Tush" to audiences the world over.

Billy Gibbons looked back at the history of the band, and also looking forward to the European tour. "It's been 50 years, and I think we're starting to get pretty good! We're just as excited to play Barcelona this summer as we were to play Beaumont (TX) back in '69. The beard are, perhaps, a bit longer, but nothing much else has changed and we hope to keep it that way."

Tickets for ZZ Top go on-sale to the general public on Friday 16 November at 10am at www.livenation.co.uk/
