ZZ TOP

THE TONNAGE TOUR

 

 

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 12TH 
SAENGER THEATRE

 

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY AT 10AM!

New Orleans, LA (July 17, 2017) - The legendary Rock n Roll Hall of Famers from Texas will be making a stop on their 2017 The Tonnage Tour at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans on Sunday, November 12th at 7:30PM.

The Tonnage Tour follows the release of "ZZ Top's Live! Greatest Hits From Around The World" album from Suretone. A whopping 15 tracks recorded live across three continents, the album is notable for having collaborations with guitar legend Jeff Beck and blues harmonica great, James Harman, recorded in London, Nashville, Los Angeles and New York City. One of tracks is a heavy rock version of Tennessee Ernie Ford's #1 hit from 1956, "Sixteen Tons." ZZ Top's take on the song is based on a mysterious YouTube creation attributed to Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top and Jeff Beck. What started as "a mega meta sorta thang" according to singer/guitarist Billy Gibbons, flourished into a staple of ZZ Top's live set and an inspiration for "The Tonnage Tour."

Billy Gibbons is looking forward to the new Tonnage Tour. "The run is Tex-centric, just like ourselves, and the band is looking forward to getting our heads in Mississippi, and points beyond," he commented. "After 4 decades, we believe we're beginning to get the hang of it, so a mighty good time will be enjoyed by all."

ZZ Top is notable for having one of the most consistently stable lineups in the history of rock music. 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 30 million records across the globe. The band rocks on with timeless hits like "La Grange," "Legs," "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Tush" keeping generations of audiences coming back for more.

Tickets for ZZ Top ($45.00 - $125.00) will go on sale Friday, July 21st at 10am at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, ticketmaster.com or by calling 800.745.3000. The box office, located at 1111 Canal St., is open Monday through Friday 10am to 5pm. All tickets subject to applicable service charges and fees. VIP packages will be available.
