ZZ Top

Raw Whisky Tour

 

ZZ Top are readying a new album titled RAW that was recorded in connection with the band’s wildly popular and critically lauded 2019 Netflix documentary That Little Ol’ Band From Texas.  The Grammy-nominated feature from Banger Films and director Sam Dunn includes an interlude that finds the group’s classic line up -- Billy Gibbons, Frank Beard and the late Dusty Hill -- gathering for a very intimate session at Gruene Hall, “the oldest continually run dance hall in Texas”.  That performance provided the basis for the RAW album release.

 

At the same time the new album is being announced, the band’s forthcoming RAW WHISKY TOUR has been revealed.  The first leg of the tour, starting on MAY 27TH in San Diego, CA, will see the band on stage in 50 markets across North America, including Vina Robles Amphitheatre, Friday, May 29, and more dates to be announced soon.  The tour’s title is a hat tip to both the forthcoming album as well as the recent release of ZZ Top Tres Hombres whisky from Balcones Distilling of Waco TX, a flavorful 100 proof mash bill of roasted blue corn, malted barley and rye.

 

Tickets are on sale for most markets starting March 11th, at 10AM local. Tickets for Vina Robles Amphitheatre can be purchased via Ticketmaster.
