Billy Gibbons details solo tour

Billy Gibbons has confirmed his first-ever solo tour, to tie in with his debut album Perfectamundo.

The ZZ Top man will hit the road across the US in November and December, following the record’s launch via Concord Records on November 6.

Gibbons recently described the album as an “obtuse, oddball, unexpected left-turn,” adding: “I learned maracas, timbales, clavas, bongos – you name it. And having lived in Mexico a couple of years, I know just enough Spanish to get me in trouble.”

His backing band, the BFGs, features Martin Guigui, Mike Flanigan, Alex Garza and Greg Morrow.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
