ZZ Top Forced To Cancel Tour Dates

ZZ Top were forced to delay the start of their U.S. tour so that bassist Dusty Hill can undergo surgery to have kidney stones removed. The band subsequently canceled the first six days of the trek to give Hill time to recuperate.

The affected dates are July 25 in Morton, Minnesota, July 26 in West Bend, Wisconsin, July 27 in Cincinnati, Ohio, July 29 in Louisville, Kentucky, July 30 in Asheville, North Carolina, and August 1 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The tour will now begin on August 6 in Sturgis, South Dakota, and so far there's no word whether the canceled dates will be rescheduled.

The trek includes support on select dates from guitar legend Jeff Beck.
