John Fogerty and ZZ Top pair for tour coming to Atlanta

John Fogerty and ZZ Top will spend a few weeks on the road together for their “Blues and Bayous Tour.”

The two acts kick off their run on May 25 in Atlantic City. They have a June 6 date slated for Atlanta, though the venue location and ticket onsale are TBA (regular Atlanta concertgoers can probably surmise where it will take place).

In a statement announcing the tour, Fogerty said, “ZZ Top is one of my favorite bands, and Billy F Gibbons is one of my all-time favorite guitarists. Riffs, blues and bayous... bucket list!”

ZZ Top is one of the longest-running bands with its original lineup of Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard. The band played Verizon Amphitheatre in October 2017, while Fogerty was last in town with a 2015 performance at Infinite Energy Arena.
