ZZ Top Tour Delayed Due to Dusty Hill's Kidney Surgery

ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill is slated to undergo surgery to remove two kidney stones this week, necessitating a delay in the start of the group’s US summer tour. 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 to prevent more serious problems down the line.
 
ZZ Top dates affected include Morton, Minnesota (July 25), West Bend, Wisconsin (July 26), Cincinnati (July 27), Louisville (July 29), Asheville, North Carolina (July 30) and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (August 1).
 
It is expected that Hill (shown above at left) will make a full recovery following two weeks of recuperation. ZZ Top’s tour is now set to launch on August 6 in Sturgis, South Dakota with the band joining forces with Jeff Beck for a string of tour dates immediately thereafter (see below).
