ZZ Top’s current tour is officially on hold.
Carl Stuber, the band’s manager announced this week that bassist Dusty Hill tripped on his way to the stage at the band’s show last Thursday. When he fell, Hill suffered a fractured shoulder, leading the show to be cancelled and the band’s dates through May 7th to be postponed. Stubner addressed Hill’s injury saying, “Dusty was suited up and ready to go when he tripped on a step while on his way to the stage for the start of Thursday’s show. It was very dark back there and the step – really a half-step – wasn’t lit so there’s no way he could’ve seen it. We found out that others had missed it and stumbled earlier in the day. Maybe some strategic lighting could’ve prevented this, but that’s water under the bridge. What’s important now is that Dusty and his medical team to do what’s necessary for a complete recovery.”
After undergoing treatment for his injury Hill was upbeat, jokingly noting of his situation, “My physicians told me that this type of injury is usually associated with contact sports. I’m not sure bass-playing qualifies as such but they’re doing their best to get me back in the game as soon as possible.” He thanked the band’s fans for their understanding, thoughts, and prayers saying, “Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes we’ve received. We’re determined to enjoy a speedy recovery and to see you soon!”
The current cities whose dates have been rescheduled are noted below.
Lake Charles, LA
