Bearded rockers line up shows in London and Manchester

ZZ Top announce two UK tour dates - ticket details
ZZ Top have announced plans to play two UK tour dates later this year.

The band, who are celebrating their 42nd anniversary, have lined up two shows in Manchester and London in June.

They will play:

London Hammersmith Apollo (June 24)
Manchester O2 Apollo (25)


The veteran rockers will be playing tracks from their 2012 album 'La Futura'. Mainman Billy Gibbons recently revealed that he and bandmate Dusty Hill once turned down an offer of $1million (£638,000) to shave off their beards.

The singer, who has sported a very lengthy beard since the group's formation, told Brave Worlds that he and Hill were approached by Gillette, who offered them the staggering amount of money to shave. Though still a hefty wedge by today's standards, the offer came in 1984, meaning it would be worth $2.25million (£1.44million) now.

Asked why he turned it down, Gibbons said: "No dice. Even adjusted for inflation, this isn't going to fly. They prospect of seeing oneself in the mirror clean-shaven is too close to a Vincent Price film… a prospect not to be contemplated, no matter the compensation."
