With Special Guest Cheap Trick

Sunday, May 3, 2020

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top are bringing their ‘Celebration with ZZ Top’ tour to Canada in late April/May 2020. Kicking off the tour April 29th in Victoria, BC, the real Tres Hombres will play dates across BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan including Sunday May 3rd in Kamloops. Cheap Trick will join on the dates as special guest.

In 1969, BFG formed ZZ Top with drummer Beard and bass-guitarist Hill, both from the Dallas. Fifteen studio albums, 30 million record sales and 5 decades later, “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas” is still going strong, playing timeless hits like “La Grange,” “Legs,” “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Tush” to audiences the world over.
