Jeff Beck and ZZ Top are gearing up to tour together for the first time ever. The run kicks off in Missoula, Montana, on August 8 and will run through mid September. Each show will feature full Jeff Beck and ZZ Top sets, with a finale that brings both legends together.

Beck's band on the road will consist of Jimmy Hall on Vocals, Rhonda Smith on bass, Jonathan Joseph on drums, and Nicolas Meier on guitar. Hall, lead singer for the Southern rock group Wet Willie, previously joined Beck in 1985 singing lead vocals on Beck’s album Flash.

ZZ Top is touring in support of two new releases this summer including The Very Baddest of ZZ Top, a new compilation from Warner Bros. and Live At Montreux 2013 on DVD and Blu-ray from Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Special opening act for this tour will be 21-year-old Texas guitar prodigy Tyler Bryant, who has previously opened for Jeff Beck, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joe Bonamassa, BB King, Heart, and Vince Gill, among many others. Bryant will appear on all dates except as noted below.

For a preview of things to come, watch as Jeff Beck joins ZZ Top for an extended rendition of “La Grange.”
