Rock & Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top have announced that they are celebrating their 50th year with a massive North American tour this summer.

The 50th Anniversary Tour kicks off on August 16 and runs through to late October.

Cheap Trick and Lynyrd Skynyrd will join the tour intermittently.

ZZ Top still maintains the most consistently stable lineup in the history of rock music.

The band, consisting of Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, have 15 studio albums and 30 million record sales to their credit.

Looking forward to the 50th Anniversary tour dates, Gibbons said, "We're truly excited to be appearing across the continent this summer and fall, playing our bluesy kind of rock like we started in '69."

"The beards, Frank's excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed. We're keeping it that way," he added.
