Legendary guitarist Jeff Beck and platinum-selling bearded rockers ZZ Top are joining forces this summer for a co-headlining, five-week tour across the United States. Their tour will kick off in Missoula, MT, at Ogren Park on August 8, and then continue to Oregon, California and Nevada, stretching from the West to East Coast with gigs in Massachusetts and Georgia. Don’t see your city on the list? More dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Each night of the tour will be kicked off by a full set by Beck, followed by a full set by ZZ Top. They’ll end the night together, playing for an England-meets-Texas collaboration. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.
ZZ Top was formed in Houston, TX, in 1969, and they are famous not only for their music but for their long, luscious beards. Fun fact: only one member is clean-shaven, and his name is Frank Beard (he’s the drummer). ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. Geoffrey Arnold “Jeff” Beck has played with a variety of bands, from being a member of The Yardbirds (other alum include Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton) and The Jeff Beck Group. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: in 1992 as a member of The Yardbirds and in 2009 as a solo artist.
