ZZ Top confirm North American tour

ZZ Top have announced a North American tour for the spring of 2016.

More shows are still to be confirmed, with 25 dates revealed so far. The trek starts in Thackerville, Oklahoma, on March 18.

Billy Gibbons says: “ZZ is comin’ at ’cha with the 2016 Hell Raisers Tour. We’re getting the road ready and know you, too, are ready to rock. It’s gonna be a good, loud time.”

Tickets go on sale on December 18 (Friday) at 10am local time.

ZZ Top had to cancel a string of US dates in 2014 after Dusty Hill damaged his hip in a fall on the band’s tour bus.

Gibbons issued his debut solo album Perfectamundo in October.
