ZZ Top cancel US dates after bassist injures shoulder

ZZ Top have cancelled their US shows after bassist Dusty Hill injured his shoulder.

The legendary rock band were scheduled to perform 10 dates, starting on Sunday (24.04.16) in Los Angeles, but have put the shows on hold after Dusty tripped over on stage and fractured his shoulder at their concert in Texas last Thursday (14.04.16).

The band's manager, Carl Stubner explained: "Dusty was suited up and ready to go when he tripped on a step while on his way to the stage for the start of Thursday's show. It was very dark back there and the step - really a half-step - wasn't lit so there's no way he could've seen it.

"We found out that others had missed it and stumbled earlier in the day. Maybe some strategic lighting could've prevented this, but that's water under the bridge. What's important now is that Dusty and his medical team to do what's necessary for a complete recovery."

And Dusty - who is joined by frontman Billy Gibbons and drummer Frank Beard in the band - has assured fans that doctors are doing "their best" to get him on the mend in order to reschedule the shows.

The 'Gimme All Your Lovin' hitmaker said: "My physicians told me that this type of injury is usually associated with contact sports. I'm not sure bass-playing qualifies as such but they're doing their best to get me back in the game as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes we've received. We're determined to enjoy a speedy recovery and see you soon!"

It's not known if it will affect the band's upcoming performance at Glastonbury Festival in the UK this June.
