The venue’s website discusses 20 dates over the course of the two months (including a spot in Pilton):
"ZZ Top is in June and July 2016 for 20 concerts, which are all part of their new roadshow to Europe . The Hell Raisers Tour kicks off in Birmingham to travel further then to the renowned Glastonbury Festival in Pilton . Then the band to mainland Europe is going to include performances in France , the Netherlands, Germany , Austria, Denmark , Finland, Sweden , Belgium and the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland where they recorded their DVD ” Live at Montreux 2013"
