Classic rock legends John Fogerty and ZZ Top announced their “Blues and Bayous Tour” today (Feb. 26). The tour, one of the great pairings of the year, opens May 25, and will make stops across the U.S. from the East Coast to the West. (See the itinerary below.)

Tickets went on sale to the general public Friday, March 2.  Tickets are available here and here.

Of the pairing, Fogerty said: “ZZ Top is one of my favorite bands, and Billy F Gibbons is one of my all-time favorite guitarists. Riffs, blues and bayous… bucket list!”

ZZ Top’s Billy F Gibbons replied: “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. We’ve got a great show lined up for ya!”

As 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. Among his numerous classic hits are “Born on the Bayou,” “Green River,” “Proud Mary” and “Bad Moon Rising.” Earning induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, he is also a New York Times best-selling author for his memoir, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music.

ZZ Top holds the distinction of being one of the longest running bands with the original line-up. Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard reflect their Texas roots in everything with their non-stop rock and blues, resulting in over 50 million albums sold worldwide. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Keith Richards calling the band’s relationship to the blues, “the heart of the matter.”
