ZZ Top headed to Kelowna

Tickets for ZZ Top in Kelowna go on sale Friday, Dec.18, 2015 at 10 a.m

“That Little ol’ Band from Texas” is at it again.

More than 46 years after their formation in the Houston area, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees ZZ Top are hitting the road between mid-March and early May of next year. The Hell Raisers Tour will take the trio to more than two dozen cities in the U.S. and Canada, with a stop in Kelowna, at Prospera Place,  scheduled for April 6, 2016.

Hell Raisers Tour, the follow up to this year’s wildly successful Groove & Gravy Tour with Blackberry Smoke, begins in Oklahoma, heading north into Indiana and Ontario, and then westward, traversing the U.S.-Canada border multiple times. From there, the band travels southeast, hitting Colorado Springs, Oklahoma (again,) and on to Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina.

ZZ Top is notable for having the most consistently stable lineup in the history of rock music. Singer/guitarist Billy F Gibbons, bassist/singer Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard continue to impress audiences, drawing material from their 15 studio albums, with combined record sales of over 25 million in the U.S. alone. Timeless hits like “La Grange,” “Legs,” “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers” (from which the tour was named) have kept generations of audiences coming back decade after decade.

Billy Gibbons expressed enthusiasm for the upcoming tour dates most eloquently, “ZZ is comin’ at’cha with the 2016 Hell Raisers Tour. We getting the road ready and know you, too, are ready to rock. Gonna be a good, good time. Make that a ‘good LOUD time!’”
