The two legendary acts are continuing their Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour next spring

After a successful campaign this summer, Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top are continuing their Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour next year. The run kicks off on March 8 at Enmarket Arena in Savannah, Georgia and wraps up on September 22 at the RV Inn Style Resorts Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington. Very special guests for the trek will be Black Stone Cherry and The Outlaws.

“Skynyrd Nation! We heard ya,” Lynyrd Skynyrd said in a statement. “We’re bringing the Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour with ZZ Top to a city near you in 2024! We can’t wait to celebrate 50 Years of Skynyrd with you!”

“ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd are back at it in 2024,” ZZ Top added.

“We are beyond excited and honored to be a part of such an iconic tour joining ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd,” Black Stone Cherry said. “For us to have been asked by two bands that we hold as major influences is something we don’t take lightly and we will be bringing our A-Game (as always) as we hit some great cities with these two rock ‘n’ roll giants.”

Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington passed away on March 5. Rossington was the last original member of the band that was still touring. He was 71 years old. Rossington had a significant presence and creative influence with the band up until his death, making select appearances on the road over the years. Lynyrd Skynyrd’s current touring line-up featuring Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Carol Chase and Stacy Michelle.

“We’re still standing, still keeping the music going,” Gary Rossington said back when the first leg of the tour was announced. “We wanted to do the guys who aren’t with us any more proud, and keep the name proud, too.”

Over the summer, Lynyrd Skynyrd have revealed the video of Gary Rossington’s final performance of “Gimme Three Steps” with the band. The clip is from the band’s show on November 13, 2022 at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. It was their final performance with Rossington.

ZZ Top have been rocking strong together for five decades. The band formed in Houston, TX in 1969 and released their debut album in 1971. To date, the band has released 15 studio albums that have produced countless hit rock anthems.

From 1983-1990, ZZ Top enjoyed their greatest commercial success, infusing elements of new wave, punk, and synth-pop into their bluesy riff-rock. The band released three albums in this span – Eliminator, Afterburner, and Recycler – all of which debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200.

The band’s music videos for “Legs”, “Rough Boy”, and“Sharp Dressed Man” all garnered MTV Video Music Awards for the band. With 13 multi-platinum albums, and 1 diamond album, ZZ Top have sold over 25 million albums sold in the U.S. alone. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

In 2021, founding bassist Dusty Hill passed away at the age of 72.

Black Stone Cherry released their latest LP Screamin’ At the Sky on September 29 through Mascot Label Group. The record is anchored by the lead single, “Nervous.” The album is available on CD, vinyl, and digital download. A limited edition blue vinyl box set is also available, which includes a poster, record slipcover, black and white lithograph, and autographed band member cards.
