Jeff Beck and ZZ Top Tour is ON!

It's happening! The Jeff Beck/ZZ Top tour starts August 8.

After a slight hiccup with bassist Dusty Hill's health, the ZZ Top/Jeff Beck tour is rev'd up and ready to rock.

We have an image (above) of photographer Ross Halfin shooting Billy Gibbons and Jeff Beck for the cover of our sibling publication Guitar World.

As final preparations have been completed for this month’s launch of the tour, the concerts have been formatted to offer a free-standing set from Jeff Beck, a free-standing set from ZZ Top, and a joint performance wherein Beck joins ZZ Top for a rocking finale.

Beck’s touring band will consist of Grammy nominee and Flash-era vocalist Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie), bassist Rhonda Smith, drummer Jonathan Joseph, and guitarist Nicolas Meier. Twenty-one-year-old Texas guitar prodigy Tyler Bryant had recently been announced as the opening act for the vast majority of the tour dates.
