Jeff Beck and ZZ Top to Tour Together this Summer

April 5, 2014
This summer, music legends and mutual admirers, ZZ Top and Jeff Beck will tour together for the first time.
The tour launches in Missoula, MT on August 8, and will run for five weeks with stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, Detroit, Boston and NYC (more dates TBA).

The tour will offer fans a full Jeff Beck set, followed by a full ZZ Top set, and then a finale that joins the English fret master with the Texas rockers.
“Ever since experiencing ‘Jeff’s Boogie,’ the prospect of performance with Jeff Beck on the deck brings us into focus with the curator of crunch,” said ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons.
Beck, an enduring fan of ZZ Top, remarked: “Ever since Eliminator, I thought it would be great to play with ZZ Top. Billy Gibbons is the 'Professor of Grunge.'”
This tour is not the first live collaboration between the two camps. Gibbons joined Jeff Beck and his band on stage at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where they performed The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s “Foxy Lady” and ZZ Top’s hit “Rough Boy” together. The following year, Beck joined ZZ Top in Lucca, Italy, for an extended rendition of the band’s signature piece “La Grange.” This, however, marks the first time Beck and ZZ Top have done any extensive touring together.
