British blues-rock legends The Yardbirds are set to visit the U.S. next month for a brief tour , and they'll be bringing an old friend with them.  The group's original lead guitarist, Top Topham , recently rejoined the band's lineup to fill in for ailing founding member Chris Dreja .

The trek will kick off with a September 11 concert in New York City and currently is mapped out through a September 14 show in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

Topham initially played with The Yardbirds for about six months during 1963 before being replaced by Eric Clapton .  His return coincides with the band's 50th anniversary.  The group will further celebrate the milestone with a major U.K. outing in early 2014 dubbed the Ultimate Rhythm and Blues Tour that also will feature sets by The Zombies and The Animals .

Here are all of The Yardbirds confirmed U.S. dates:

9/11 -- New York, NY, BB Kings Blues Club and Grill
9/12 -- Arlington, MA, Regent Theatre
9/13 -- St. Charles, IL, Arcada Theatre
9/14 -- Lake Tahoe, NV, Harrah's Casino
