ZZ Top and John Fogerty team up for summer US tour

ZZ Top and John Fogerty are teaming up for an early summer US tour.

The month-long “Blues And Bayous" trek will see the acts kicks things off in Atlantic City, NJ on May 25, with shows scheduled to wrap up in Welch, MN on June 29.

"ZZ Top is one of my favorite bands,” says Fogerty, “and Billy F Gibbons is one of my all-time favorite guitarists. Riffs, blues and bayous ... bucket list!"

"John Fogerty along with ZZ Top have been followers of blues and rock since the beginning,” adds Gibbons, “and we're looking forward to rippin' it up together this spring."

Willie Nelson will join the artists for their June 26 show at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mt. Pleasant, MI.

Presales for all dates will be available on Tuesday, February 27 at 10 a.m. local time, with general public tickets on sale Friday, March 2 at 10 a.m. local time.

Ahead of the early summer trek, ZZ Top will perform a 6-show spring residency at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Las Vegas in April as they return to the stage since postponing the final 18 dates of their 2017 Tonnage Tour last October following doctor’s orders that bassist Dusty Hill take time off to address a stomach issue.

Fogerty released his most recent album, “Wrote A Song For Everyone”, in 2013, and continues to be a regular concert attraction.
