ZZ Top Announce Summer Tour + ‘Raw’ Live Album
Southern rock legends ZZ Top have just announced the Raw live album and a headlining run in the U.S. and Canada, dubbed the Raw Whisky Tour.
The live record, which features 11 standout songs, was recorded in connection with the 2019 Netflix documentary, That Little Ol' Band From Texas. Tracked prior to the death of bassist Dusty Hill, Raw found ZZ Top playing live at the Gruene Hall in Texas without a live audience and they knocked out all the tracks in a single day of recording.
The live audiences will be in abundance later this year, with a May 6 stop in Ontario, Canada before ZZ Top truly begin their tour on May 29 with a series of U.S. dates steadily stretching out through July 9. Following two weeks off, Top will perform two more shows in late July and another toward the end of August.
See the complete list of stops further down the page and look for tickets for most of the dates to go on sale on March 11. For more information, head to the ZZ Top website.
Meanwhile, Raw, will be released on July 22 through Shelter Records/BMG. The record is dedicated "in righteous memory of Dusty Hill," who died at age 72 last summer. Longtime guitar tech Elwood Francis has since filled the vacant bass role, a move Hill supported prior to his passing.
