ZZ Top have announced a five-date national tour to tie in with their previously confirmed show at the Byron Bay Blues Festival in April.

The Texan blues-rock legends, famous as much for their long beards as hits like Legs and Gimme All Your Lovin’, will play gigs in Melbourne, Newcastle, Wollongong and Sydney.

“We’re the same three guys, bashing out the same three chords,” said guitarist Billy F Gibbons.

“The band’s mantra remains the same: Tone. Taste. Tenacity.”

ZZ Top – made up of Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard – last toured Australia in 2000 and have sold more than 20 million records worldwide.

Their 1983 album Eliminator was a multi-platinum smash in Australia and was named ‘one of the greatest albums of the ’80s’ by Rolling Stone magazine.

The band will be supported by Rose Tattoo and The Poor at their Australian shows with tickets going on sale from 9am on December 7.

ZZ Top play the following dates:

April 18 – Melbourne Festival Hall

April 20 – Newcastle Entertainment Centre

April 25 – Wollongong Entertainment Centre

April 27-28 – Sydney Enmore Theatre.
