GLASTONBURY, ENGLAND - JUNE 24: (L-R) Dusty Hill, Frank Beard and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top perform on the Pyramid Stage during the Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 24, 2016 in Glastonbury, England. Now its 46th year the festival is one largest music festivals in the world and this year features headline acts Muse, Adele and Coldplay. The Festival, which Michael Eavis started in 1970 when several hundred hippies paid just £1, now attracts more than 175,000 people.

ZZ Top‘s 2017 Tonnage Tour has added some weight, with new dates as part of its North American leg.

That trek, which began May 12, resumes today (August 24) in Vancouver and now has dates booked across the country through November 12, including some shows opening for Guns N’ Roses.

In a statement guitarist, Billy Gibbons says that, “We’re looking forward to playing for so many good folks in some of our favorite locales and serving as cultural ambassadors to our pals in Guns N’ Roses when they visit the great state of Texas. After four decades, we believe we’re beginning to get the hang of this whole rock and roll thing, as a mighty good time will be enjoyed by all.”

The tour is continuing to support the group’s Live! Greatest Hits From Around The World album that came out last year.
