Legendary rock musicians John Fogerty and ZZ Top will hit the road together, and the tour kicks off May 25 at the Event Center at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.
At this point, the Blues and Bayous Tour lasts 24 dates and will not be coming to Philadelphia or Camden, but more dates are to be announced. The currently scheduled last date is June 29 at the Treasure Island Resort & Casino in Welch, Minnesota.
The tour also features a show May 26 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, Monmouth County.
ZZ Top holds the distinction of being one of the longest-running bands with its original lineup.
Billy F. Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard reflect their Texas roots in everything with their nonstop rock and blues, resulting in more than 50 million albums sold worldwide. The band has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“ZZ Top is one of my favorite bands, and Billy F. Gibbons is one of my all-time favorite guitarists,” Fogerty said in a statement.
The co-founder of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Fogerty’s career spans 50 years, and he is hailed as one of the most influential musicians in rock history. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
“John Fogerty, along with ZZ Top, have been followers of blues and rock since the beginning, and we’re looking forward to rippin’ it up together this spring,” Gibbons said in a statement.
