first_imgZZ Top has revealed their plans for a lengthy 50th-anniversary tour in 2019. The late-summer/fall U.S. trek will follow a trio of Texas performances in May and a substantial run of shows in Europe throughout June and July. Cheap Trick will serve as the primary support act for the tour, with Lynyrd Skynyrd also locked in for a handful of dates.As guitarist/vocalist Billy Gibbons explains of the tour in a statement, “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. The beards, Frank [Beard]’s excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed. We’re keeping it that way.”Related: Love Rocks NYC Brings Robert Plant, Sheryl Crow, Ann & Nancy Wilson, Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons, & Many More Together For A Cause [Videos]Tickets for ZZ Top’s 50th-anniversary tour go on sale this Friday, April 12th.
