ZZ Top announce spring tour

ZZ Top have announced their spring tour plans

The Texas rockers will headline the Gang Of Outlaws Tour, with special guests 3 Doors Down; the pair will be joined by Gretchen Wilson on select dates.

The 6-week, 24-date trip starts May 25 in Manchester, NH.

ZZ Top, who have been working on a new album with producer Rick Rubin for a few years now, are expected to preview new material from their forthcoming release over the course of the tour.

Last June, ZZ Top premiered a new song from the project, “Flyin’ High,” in space; it was taken to the International Space Station by astronaut and friend Michael Fossum aboard a Russian spacecraft.
