The rock and roll machine known as ZZ Top are heading back to the US for another round of concerts in support of their new album ‘La Futura.’ The tour kicks off May 2 and runs through the 25th.

The band just wrapped up a tour of Australia, which included dates with Guns N’ Roses. After the US dates, they are heading to Europe for a short summer tour, before heading back to the US for a pair of summer festivals, including Bonnaroo, and the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

On top of that, guitarist Billy Gibbons will reunite with the Moving Sidewalks, his band from the mid 1960s, for two shows — March 30 in New York City, and April 28 for the Austin Psych Fest in Austin, Texas. The band’s latest release, ‘La Futura,’ was hailed as a return to form, and the band seem to be enjoying this latest round of live shows.

“Keep on keepin’ on!” Billy Gibbons told the Compass, “We put this band together with nothing in mind but getting out there and playin’ some of that low down rockin’ blues. Moreover, we have to keep it on the move. We don’t know anything else.”
