Following nearly a month-long European run, classic rock act ZZ Top will join forces with Jeff Beck for a co-headlining run across the nation.

The two iconic bands will divide up each night, performing their own sets before coming together for a collaborative finale. The joint journey gets underway Aug. 8 in Missoula, MT, and finishes up five weeks later with a Sept. 12 performance in The Woodlands, TX.

The musicians have collaborated before, but not on a full-length trek. ZZ Top guitarist/singer Billy Gibbons joined Beck at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2009, while Beck shared the stage with ZZ Top in Lucca, Italy, in 2010.
