Rock Hall inductees ZZ Top, a trio that has sold 30 million records over the course of a lengthy career, have just announced the dates of a tour celebrating their 50th year together.

“It’s been five decades, and I think we’re starting to get pretty good at all this!" says frontman Billy Gibbons in a press release about the tour. "The beards, [drummer] Frank [Beard]excepted, are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed. We're keeping it that way.”

The band will perform on Sept. 21 at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica. Cheap Trick will open the show.

A portion of each ticket sold will benefit the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
