Well, this article explained it as “one of the strangest tour packages we’ve seen this year,” and I cannot say I would disagree with that statement. This is not a trio I would expect to see on tour together, but I guess anything can happen.
Stray Cats is a group my wife has been fond of, in fact, I think she even has one of their tapes or CDs or something, but I really don’t care for them too much. Ditto for the Pretenders, but I surely have more fondness for ZZ Top. Especially when it comes to “Cheap Sunglasses” and “LaGrange” — two of my favorite songs.
The article I mentioned above also lists the tour dates for this unlikely collection of groups, which apparently starts on July 19 in Chicago and ends on August 26 in Portland, Oregon.
