ZZ Top to resume tour with Jeff Beck next year

ZZ Top have announced that they will resume their US tour dates with Jeff Beck next year while bassist Dusty Hill recovers from a recent hip injury.

"Dusty's well-being is paramount,” said the band.

Hill continues to recover and the rocker is now doing physio in expectation of a complete recovery.

The band’s management is now booking and re-scheduling an extensive run of dates starting early next year.

“We’re looking forward to getting out there and rockin’ it with Dusty in a big way...100%,” bandmates Billy F Gibbons and Frank Beard, commented. Dusty's usual upbeat wit was very much in evidence as he added that he'd like to see Slim Harpo’s classic "Hip Shake" added to the band's repertoire.
