Guitar god Jeff
Beck was in the middle of a co-headlining tour with rock legends ZZ Top that was
set to visit DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, MI this evening. Tonight's show,
as well as
the rest of the tour, has been cancelled, after ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill slipped and
fell on his hip aboard his tour bus last night according to WCSX.
Here's the full text of the statement on WCSX:
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – ZZ Top and Jeff Beck have cancelled their performance
tonight at DTE Energy Music Theatre due an injury suffered by ZZ Top bassist Dusty
Hill. Per the tour, Hill slipped and fell on his hip while aboard his tour bus last
night. As a result of Hill’s injury, which requires immediate attention, ZZ Top
performance dates have been temporarily suspended while he recovers. Tour dates
affected by the suspension include all of the scheduled concert bills shared with
Jeff Beck through September 13, including tonight’s date at DTE Energy Music Theatre.
Refunds are available at point of purchase.
In addition to receiving a refund at point of purchase, Palace Sports &
and DTE Energy Music Theatre is offering fans affected by tonight’s cancellation an
invitation to one of two alternative shows this holiday weekend. Fans are invited to
attend Queensryche at DTE Energy Music Theatre on Thursday, August 28 or the Oddball
Comedy Festival on Friday, August 29. Tickets can be redeemed for either of these
two shows by bringing refunded ZZ Top/Jeff Beck tickets to The Palace or DTE Energy
Music Theatre Box Offices.
The tour was set to run through September 13. There's no word yet as to whether the
remaining dates will be rescheduled. Here's hoping Dusty Hill has a quick recovery.
