We are going to start a rumor that ZZ Top will be playing at the Download Festival (aka Donington) in the U.K. this year, followed by a U.K. tour in June.
OK, we didn't exactly start this rumor, it's been floating out there for a while, but supposedly an offer has been made to the band, and the dates for Download fit right into the gap after the German shows in early/mid-June.
No promises, of course, but it does seem to fit. If it's true, the announcement should be pretty soon, no later than mid-February.
As always, we'll believe it when we see it, but if it does happen, there will be some very happy fans in the U.K.!
