The Grooves & Gravy Tour will kick off on August 12 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and is plotted out through an October 4 show in Louisville, Kentucky.

Opening for ZZ Top at most stops on the trek will be Atlanta-based Southern rock group Blackberry Smoke. The tour features more than 30 dates overall, and includes performances in Memphis; Nashville; New Orleans; Dallas; San Diego; Columbus, Ohio; and Atlantic City, New Jersey; as well as a few Canadian cities.

“We’re looking forward to getting out there with the Blackberry Smoke guys,” says ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons. “Grooves & Gravy promises to be one of the rowdiest outings of the year so come on out and get crazy with us.”
