ZZ Top have announced dates for a spring tour of North America.

The 7-week run begins March 18 Thackerville, OK, with shows currently scheduled to end May 6 in Concord, NC – with more to be announced.

“ZZ is comin’ at’cha with the 2016 Hell Raisers Tour,” says Billy Gibbons. “We getting the road ready and know you, too, are ready to rock. Gonna be a good, good time. Make that a ‘good LOUD time!'”

Tickets go on sale December 18 at 10 a.m. local time.

Prior to the spring shows, Gibbons will head out for a second leg of US concerts in support of his debut solo album “Perfectamundo.”
