ZZ Top release Eliminator classic from Live At Montreux 2013 package

ZZ Top have issued a performance of the 1983 “Eliminator” classic, “Gimme All Your Lovin’”, from their newly-released package, “Live At Montreux 2013.”

Available on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats, the set captures the Texas trio in concert at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Montreux, Switzerland on July 10, 2013.

The set features a blend of tracks from classic early ‘70s ZZ Top albums such as “Tres Hombres” and “Fandango” through their ‘80s blockbuster period with “Eliminator” and “Afterburner”, up to their most recent release and return to their blues roots with 2012’s “La Futura.”

A few days ago, ZZ Top announced that they have been forced to postpone the start of their summer US tour following news that bassist Dusty Hill will undergo surgery to remove two kidney stones this week.

The band issued a statement the kidney stones were discovered in the course of a routine physical examination where Hill’s doctor advised him that they should immediately be removed before they cause more serious problems down the line.

ZZ Top dates affected include Morton, MN (July 25), West Bend, WI (July 26), Cincinnati (July 27), Louisville (July 29), Asheville, NC (July 30) and Bethlehem, PA (August 1).

It is expected that Hill will make a full recovery following two weeks of recuperation.

ZZ Top’s summer tour is now set to launch on August 6 in Sturgis, SD with the band joining forces with Jeff Beck for a string of tour dates beginning August 8 in Missoula, Montana.

The shows will see Beck perform a full set followed by one from the Texas trio, and close with a jam from both acts.
