Rock and Roll of Famers launching Western Canada tour in spring

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top are returning to Abbotsford.

The legendary rockers announced they will be making a stop at the Abbotsford Centre on May 1.

The band is touring across Western Canada, and will also make stops in B.C. cities Victoria (April 29), Penticton (May 2), Kamloops (May 3) and Cranbrook (May 5).

ZZ Top formed in Texas in 1969, and have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. That includes eleven gold, seven platinum and three multi-platinum albums as of 2016. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

They have released a total of 15 albums, and earlier this year performed a six-day run of shows at The Venetian in Las Vegas.

ZZ Top will be joined by fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Cheap Trick for the tour.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday (Dec. 20) at 10 a.m. online at ticketmaster.ca with prices ranging from $83.50 to $125.50.

The band last performed in Abbotsford back in 2016. They also performed at the Abbotsford Centre back in 2009.
