Classic Rock Concert
ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd team up for first time with tour coming to Fort Worth
It will be a classic rock bonanza when ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd come to Fort Worth as part of their first co-headlining tour, "The Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour," which will stop at Dickies Arena on July 29, 2023.
Fort Worth will be the fourth of 22 stops around North America for the tour in summer 2023. It will kick off in West Palm Beach, Florida on July 21 and last around two months, finishing in Camden, New Jersey on September 17. In addition to Fort Worth, the tour will also play in The Woodlands, outside Houston, on July 30.
Both bands have made relatively recent stops in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, with ZZ Top playing in Dallas in September 2022, and Lynyrd Skynyrd gracing the stage of Billy Bob's Texas for the first time in July 2021.
The name of the tour cheekily combines two of the bands' most popular songs, ZZ Top's 1983 single "Sharp Dressed Man," and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man," a song that wasn't even released as a single in 1973, but which has gone on to be one of their most iconic tunes.
2023 marks the 50th anniversary of both Lynyrd Skynyrd's debut album, Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd’, and the 50th anniversary of ZZ Top's breakthrough album, Tres Hombres.
Tickets for the tour go on sale starting Friday, December 16 at 10 am at LiveNation.com.
