The rest of ZZ Top’s 2017 tour, including a performance tomorrow night at the South Carolina State Fair, have been postponed until further notice due to a member’s medical issues.
The legendary rock band’s website reads:
ZZ Top Tonnage Tour Concludes; Legendary Group Planning Extensive Touring In 2018
ZZ’s cornerstone bass guitarist, Mr. Dusty Hill, is addressing a tummy ailment and is following a directive to lay low for the next few weeks. Whew!
The band rocks 2018 and to then blow it out in 2019 as they celebrate a big “50”…! Once-in-a-millennium.
Their twitter account posted the following:
