Tour starts in Texas--Adding Europe dates from zztop.com -- ZZ Top 2010 Tour Dates -- new rumored dates being added

Looks like the boooking agents have been busy. We have heard about posible dates in the Spring in the U.S., possibly as a warm-up for the South American tour. Here is what we have tentatively been able to put together:

NOTE: What we have pieced together for the Europe shows the Boyzz playing 20 shows or more in a single month, including *nine* days in a row. This would be a crazy thing for their booking agent to do and we suspect that some of these shows may drop out along the way. New dates in Helsinki and Monte Carlo.

ZZ Top to play Locarno, Switzerland on 10th July 2010 at Moon and Stars Festival 2010 (www.moonandstarslocarno.ch)!!

The main italian ticket seller company (www.ticketone.it) says that tickets for a ZZ show in the city of Lucca are now available for purchase ( sorry for my english) : the date is July 13th @ Piazza Napoleone in Lucca , ZZ Top + Jeff Beck. It looks very strange because as far as I know ZZ don't play more than 2 or 3 consecutive show... and now the situation is : Roma-Lucca-Padova-Milano (tickets for the first 3 shows are available now).. I'm really confused , but except for Milano (confirmed but location still to be announced)all the rest seems to be true......... I'll let you know
