ZZ Top have relentlessly toured since their formation in 1969 and 2017 will be no exception as they have already set their first dates.

The Tonnage Tour opens on February 15 in Greenville, SC and moves to the northeast before returning to Georgia for the final announced date on March 14, but don’t worry across the rest of the country. These are just the first shows for the tour.

Billy Gibbons said of the new trek “It’s gonna be a good time. We’ve been at this long enough that we’re starting to get good. Come and see us; it’s gonna be loud and live.”

The trio of Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard have been playing together since 1969, one of the longest runs in rock history for a group not changing members. Their latest album is Live! Greatest Hits From Around The World.

The dates announced so far:
02/19 – Greenville, SC – Peace Center Concert Hall
02/22 – Nashville, TN – Ryman Auditorium
02/24 – Louisville, KY – The Louisville Palace Theater
02/25 – Northfield, OH – Hard Rock Live
02/26 – Schenectady, NY – Proctor’s Theatre
03/03 – Atlantic City, NJ – Caesars Atlantic City– Circus Maximus
03/04 – Shippensburg, PA – H. Ric Luhrs PAC– Shippensburg University
03/05 – Washington, D.C. – MGM National Harbor
03/11 – Lake Charles, LA – Golden Nugget
03/14 – Macon, GA – City Auditorium
