The Eliminator Tour was a concert tour by American rock band ZZ Top. Presented by Schlitz Beer, the tour took place in the North America and Europe. The set list featured material from the band's past studio albums.

Itinerary[edit]

The tour followed the March 1983 release of the band's album Eliminator and began on May 12, 1983 in Jackson, Mississippi.

Quiet Riot was the opening act in June 1983 and was booed in Kansas City. Jon Bon Jovi opened in St. Louis in June of 1983 perhaps due to the unfavorable response in Kansas City earlier that same month.

Sammy Hagar was the opening act in July and August, one of the highlights was being joined on stage by Brad Delp from the band Boston at the Worcester Centrum show (they performed Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love"). Quiet Riot again joined the tour for the Canadian leg in September.
