Jeff Beck and ZZ Top have announced a joint North American tour that will kick off in August.
According to a press release, the shows will begin with a full Beck set, followed by a full ZZ Top set, followed by a finale that will find Beck and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons on stage at the same time.
Beck added: “Ever since Eliminator, I thought it would be great to play with ZZ Top.” We went on to call Gibbons “the Professor of Grunge.”
Gibbons joined Beck and his band on stage at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where they performed Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxey Lady” (See the video below) and ZZ Top’s “Rough Boy.” The following year, Beck joined ZZ Top in Lucca, Italy, for an extended rendition of “La Grange.”
