ZZ Top and Jeff Beck Announce North American Summer Tour

By dfanelli,

Jeff Beck and ZZ Top have announced a joint North American tour that will kick off in August.

The trek, which starts August 8 in Missoula, Montana, will run for five weeks with stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, Detroit, Boston and New York City.

You can check out all the dates below, bearing in mind that more dates will be added soon.

According to a press release, the shows will begin with a full Beck set, followed by a full ZZ Top set, followed by a finale that will find Beck and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons on stage at the same time.

“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,” Gibbons said.

Beck added:

“Ever since Eliminator, I thought it would be great to play with ZZ Top.” We went on to call Gibbons “the Professor of Grunge.”

Gibbons joined 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 Jimi Hendrix's “Foxey Lady” (See the video below) and ZZ Top’s “Rough Boy.” The following year, Beck joined ZZ Top in Lucca, Italy, for an extended rendition of “La Grange.”

As we've reported, Beck will be releasing a new studio album this summer. It will be his first since 2010's Emotion & Commotion. You can expect plenty of news about that in the months ahead.
