ZZ Top announces show at Abbotsford Centre

Trio to bring their Hell Raisers Tour on April 7

Long-time rockers ZZ Top come to Abbotsford Centre on April 7.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees ZZ Top have announced that they’re bringing their Hell Raisers Tour to Abbotsford Centre on April 7.

The tour will take the trio – who formed 46 years ago in the Houston area – to more than two dozen cities in the U.S. and Canada, with a focus on the midwest, Pacific Northwest, and American south.

The Hell Raisers Tour, the follow-up to this year’s successful Groove and Gravy Tour with Blackberry Smoke, begins in Oklahoma and heads north into Indiana and Ontario, and then westward, traversing the U.S.-Canada border multiple times.

From there, the band travels southeast, hitting Colorado Springs, Oklahoma and on to Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee and North Carolina.

ZZ Top is notable for having the most consistently stable lineup in the history of rock music. Singer/guitarist Billy F Gibbons, bassist/singer Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard continue to impress audiences, drawing material from their 15 studio albums, with combined record sales of over 25 million in the U.S. alone.

Timeless hits like La Grange, Legs, Sharp Dressed Man and Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers (from which the tour was named) have kept generations of audiences coming back decade after decade.

The trio last appeared at Abbotsford Centre, when it was known as the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, in 2009.

Doors for the show open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, Dec. 18 at 10 a.m.

They are available at ticketmaster.ca, at the venue box office or by calling 1-855-985-5000.
