ZZ Top and Jeff Beck expand US tour

ZZ Top and Jeff Beck have expanded their summer tour of North America.

The pair have added 7 new dates to the run, including stops in Tucson, Albuqurque, Salamanca, Atlantic City, West Palm Beach, Tampa and Thackerville, OK.

The shows, which begin August 8 in Missoula, Montana, will see Beck perform a full set followed by one from the Texas trio, and close with a jam from both acts.

Last month, Beck cancelled his European summer tour dates after seeking immediate medical attention and undergoing an unidentified hospital procedure requiring six weeks of rest.

"It is with the greatest regret that Jeff Beck has been forced to cancel the forthcoming European dates of his worldwide tour, set to begin in Austria on 27 June," posted the rocker’s team on his social media sites. "Following many months of international touring and after seeking emergency medical attention, Jeff will now undertake a short hospital procedure and his doctors have instructed a complete break from performance for a total of six weeks. Following the treatment, Jeff will fulfill his US tour commitments beginning in Missoula MT on 8th August.”

"He sends his profound apologies to those fans who had bought tickets for the European concerts,” continued the statement, “and very much looks forward to playing for his American audiences after he has completed his treatment."

Beck recently turned 70.
