Jeff Beck To Play Three Shows Without ZZ Top

Yesterday we shared the news that the rest of guitarist Jeff Beck's tour with ZZ Top had been canceled after an injury to ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill. Since then, Beck has announced he'll move forward with three shows this weekend as a solo headliner.

Beck will play shows tomorrow night at Seneca Allegany Casino in Salamanca, NY; on Saturday at The Concert Venue in Atlantic City, NJ and on Sunday at MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, CT. Tyler Bryant will open each show. Jeff's also announced that dates scheduled for West Palm Beach, Tampa, St. Augustine, Atlanta, Thackerville and Houston will potentially be rescheduled. The statement adds that patrons should hold onto their ticket stubs for a possible future announcement.
