Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top will play the South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC) April 24, 2021.
The legendary rockers made the annoucement on April 15, that they would be rescheduling dates for their ‘Celebration with ZZ Top’ cross-Canada tour.
The band was originally set to play the SOEC May 2, 2020 but the show was one of the many cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Canada-spanning tour will now kick-off next spring in Victoria, B.C. and wrap up in St. John’s, N.L.
Cheap Trick will open the majority of the shows, including the four in B.C.
Formed in 1969, ZZ Top still maintains the most stable lineup in the history of rock music, consisting of Billy F. Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard.
Five decades, 15 studio albums, and $30 million record sales in their legacy, ZZ Top is still going strong, playing timeless hits like “La Grange,” “Legs,” “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Tush” to global audiences.
