ZZ Top To Hit The Road On Grooves & Gravy Tour With Special Guest Blackberry Smoke

Legendary Texas Rockers and Atlanta Up-And-Comers Announce Extensive U.S. Touring Schedule


Hot on the heels of their tour with Jeff Beck and a sizeable concert run on their own, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top are teaming up with special guests Blackberry Smoke for the Grooves & Gravy Tour. The tour will take the two simpatico bands through much of North America from mid-August to early October. The Grooves & Gravy Tour stops in Memphis (Live At The Garden Summer Concert Series), Festival TroisRivieres en Blues in Quebec, Nashville, New Orleans, The Blues & Brews Festival in Telluride, CO, Pomona and San Diego, CA, and — to quote the ZZ Top’s classic “Jesus Just Left Chicago,” – “all points in between.”

Mutual admiration between the bands is strong, who both share Southern roots. “We’re looking forward to getting out there with the Blackberry Smoke guys,” declared ZZ Top singer/guitarist Billy F Gibbons. “Grooves & Gravy promises to be one of the rowdiest outings of the year so come on out and get crazy with us.” Likewise, Blackberry Smoke lead singer/guitarist Charlie Starr proclaimed, “We can’t wait to go out and make music with the legendary ZZ Top!
