“Every girl crazy ‘bout a sharp dressed man,” but for those of you that missed ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons’ tour dates in support of his recently released solo album, Perfectamundo, don’t fret. The bearded Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee will be doing it all over again next spring, but this time with his fellow ZZ Top band members.
The bearded blues-rock trio has signed up to headline a pair of U.S. festivals in May of next year. First is the 2016 Welcome to Rockville Festival, which takes place April 30 and May 1 in Jacksonville, Florida. ZZ Top will headline the main stage on the second day of the musical extravaganza.
The festival has an awesome lineup that includes Megadeth, Rob Zombie, Collective Soul, Sixx:A.M., Anthrax, 3 Doors Down, Candlebox, Filter, Cypress Hill, Disturbed, Shinedown, P.O.D., Five Finger Death Punch, Sevendust, HELLYEAH and with more acts being added it will be nothing less than rockin’.
ZZ Top is also among the bands on the bill for the first day of the 2016 Carolina Rebellion Festival. Scheduled for May 6, 7 and 8 in Concord, North Carolina. The rock fest will also include Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Scorpions, plus all of the aforementioned acts on the Welcome to Rockville lineup.
With the first leg of Gibbons’ solo tour wrapped up, and the second leg getting underway on in early 2016 on January 20 in Washington, D.C. and running through till February 6 in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, you’ll get a chance to catch Billy on the road, but for those of you who are jonesing for the full lineup with ZZ Top, hang in there the boys from Texas are coming.
