ZZ Top and John Fogerty Join Forces for Blues and Bayous Tour

Willie Nelson Joins Tour for One Night Only on June 26

ZZ Top and John Fogerty, some of the most significant influencers of modern country rock, will take their Blues and Bayous Tour to 25 cities this summer.

The collaborative run kicks off May 25 in Atlantic City, N.J. and closes June 29 in Welch, Minn. Willie Nelson will join the tour for one night only on June 26 in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. Tickets go on sale March 2 at 10 a.m. local time.

Both ZZ Top and Fogerty are members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and their country music connections run deep.

ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons and bassist Dusty Hill helped kick off the 2014 CMT Music Awards with a rocking version of “LaGrange,” a signature song for what’s widely known as that “little ol’ band from Texas.” The group collaborated with Brooks & Dunn on a 2002 episode of CMT Crossroads and hosted a few country acts including The Cadillac Three on several of their tours.

Fogerty recently appeared on the title track of Brad Paisley’s 2017 album, Love and War. He also taped a 2005 CMT Crossroads with Keith Urban.
