ZZ Top and Gregg Allman have announced a joint US tour kicking off in August.

The trek starts in Ohio on August 16 and runs through to October 8 where they will wrap up with an appearance in Rancho Mirage, California.

Six dates on the tour – Anderson Indiana on August 19, Hyannis Massachusetts on August 30, Portland Maine on September 4, San Luis Obispo California on September 29, San Diego California on October 4 and Rancho Mirage California on October 8 – will see ZZ Top perform alone as Allman is not available.

ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons says: “The history with ZZ Top and Gregg Allman together goes way back to around the time the earth cooled.

“The double lineup makes for a killer combination so buckle up and let’s have a party. Rock on.”

ZZ Top have a number of dates still to come on their own headlining tour, which runs through to July 19 in Sweden.
