They're not booked in La Grange, but ZZ Top's "50th Anniversary Texas Bash" will pull into Austin360 Amphitheater on May 19, concluding a three-day weekend of shows that includes dates in Dallas and Houston.
Bad Company and Cheap Trick will join the band at all three shows. Tickets, $29.50-$199.50, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 1, via the venue's website. A pre-sale event is set for Thursday, Jan. 31 (details for that are also on the website).
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame trio launched in guitarist Billy Gibbons' hometown of Houston in 1969 when he recruited bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard from Dallas. All three members will turn 70 this year; the Austin show happens to fall on Hill's 70th birthday.
ZZ Top's hits include "La Grange," "Tush," "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Sleeping Bag." More than a half-dozen of its albums have gone platinum, with 1983's "Eliminator" selling more than 10 million copies in the United States.
