Reading a stop on ZZ Top's 'The Tonnage Tour'

'It's gonna be a good time,' says Billy Gibbons

READING, Pa. - After traveling around the world, ZZ Top will be winding down its current tour with a return to Berks County.

The legendary trio of rockers announced Monday that they will perform at the Santander Performing Arts Center in Reading on October 29.

Tickets for the concert, which is currently the second to last on "The Tonnage Tour," will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. at the Santander Arena box office on Penn Street and online through Ticketmaster.

"It’s gonna be a good time," said Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top's guitarist and lead vocalist. "We've been at this long enough that we're starting to get good. Come and see us; it's gonna be loud and live."

ZZ Top began its current tour in Mobile, Alabama, in February. The band will go international in July, with a month-long journey through France, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Luzembourg, and the United Kingdom, before returning to the United States in August. 

The tour follows ZZ Top's release of its "Live! Greatest Hits from Around the World" album, which features 15 tracks that were recorded live in 13 cities across three continents.

ZZ Top also performed in Reading in 2005 and 2009.
