ZZ Top 50th Anniversary Tour Continues and Will Include Canada

19th December 2019 | Category: Concerts

Blues-rock veterans ZZ Top have extended their 50th-anniversary tour into 2020. They will be bringing A Celebration Tour to Canada in the spring of 2020.

The Canadian leg of their tour kicks off on April 29, 2020, at the Save On Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria. The 11-date trek continues through May hitting Abbotsford, Penticton, Kamloops, Cranbrook, Lethbridge, Enoch, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Thunder Bay and ends with St. John’s.

Special guests Cheap Trick will be joining the tour on select dates.

Before the band heads out on the tour, they will be hosting a 5-night Las Vegas residency at The Venetian Theatre. The shows will be held on March 20, 21, 25, 27 and 28.

In other news, earlier this month, ZZ Top also announced that their documentary Z Top: That Little Ol’ Band From Texas will be released via Eagle Rock Entertainment on 28 February 2020. The documentary explores the band’s long history with interviews with the band members, conversations with high-profile fans, performances, as well as never-before-seen archival footage.

It originally premiered at a sold-out showing at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood earlier this year and was also a success running for 10 weeks in theatres across the country.

Frank Beard, Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill formed the band in 1969.

Since then the trio has released 4 Gold-certified albums, 3 Platinum-certified albums and 2 multi-Platinum-certified albums. ZZ Top’s latest studio album “La Futura” was released on September 10th, 2012 and charted at #6 on the Billboard 200.

ZZ Top is considered one of the longest music acts in rock history. Gibbons told the National Podcast of Texas that the secret to their longevity lies in everyone respecting each other’s personal space and that the three men simply love playing together.

“Someone asked recently, ‘How did you three guys manage to stay together for longer than most marriages?’ Two words come to mind: separate buses. It’s made it all go all right. It’s a good team.”
