Shows Go On For Jeff Beck

Following the news yesterday that all remaining dates on the ZZ Top/Jeff Beck co-headline tour were “temporarily suspended” while bassist Dusty Hill recovers from a fall, we have good news for Jeff Beck fans. The guitar god announced he’ll still be playing select dates on his own.

Hill slipped and fell on his hip while on the band’s tour bus Tuesday evening. A statement from ZZ Top notes the injury “requires immediate attention.”

The tour was supposed to play the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Mich., Wednesday, as well as Ravinia Festival At Ravinia Park in Highland Park, Ill., tonight. While those shows are canceled, Beck is continuing with the rest of this week’s plans.

The following previously scheduled dates are good to go for Beck:

Aug. 29 – Salamanca, N.Y., Event Center At Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel    
Aug. 30 – Atlantic City, N.J., Harrah’s Atlantic City          
Aug. 31 – Mashantucket, Conn., Grand Theater

Tyler Bryant opens. Beck will be backed by his band – Jimmy Hall on vocals, Rhonda Smith on bass, Jonathan Joseph on drums and Nicolas Meier on guitar. 

“While we are very disappointed to not continue this tour with ZZ Top, our thoughts and best wishes are for Dusty to have a speedy recovery,” Beck says.
