ZZ Top and Jeff Beck Pick Up Where They Left off in 2014 with Rescheduled Dates
Now that ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill has recovered from his recent injury, the band will pick up where the band left off in 2014 by concluding their tour with guitar legend Jeff Beck which came to a premature end in 2015.The band announced its plans in a Facebook post, insisting “Dusty’s well-being is paramount,” and letting fans know they’ll be off the road for the rest of the year while Hill rehabs the wounded hip he sustained after stumbling on the tour bus. “We’re looking forward to getting out there and rockin’ it with Dusty in a big way … 100 percent,” added Hill’s bandmates Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard, while Hill joked that he wants to add Slim Harpo’s ‘Hip Shake’ to the set list for the next round of dates.
Added Beck, “We are looking forward to getting back out there with ZZ Top and are grateful that Dusty is on his way to a complete recovery.”
Those shows are already falling into place, including a number of rescheduled gigs with Beck. Although some of the canceled dates will not be rescheduled, they’ve announced plans to make up six shows in May 2015, with promises of a complete updated schedule to be released next week.
