ZZ Top Postpones Lubbock Show After Band Member Injury [Video]
[Update] ZZ Top has confirmed via Facebook that the Lubbock show was postponed after bass player Dusty Hill dislocated his shoulder. No word yet if this injury will impact the rest of the band's upcoming tour dates.
[Original story] Just before ZZ Top was set to take the stage at Lubbock's Lone Star Amphitheater, one of the band members hurt himself, leading to the show being postponed.
It's not currently clear which band member fell backstage late Thursday night. However, the man who came out on stage to announce that the band would have to postpone the show said he had spoken to Billy Gibbons about the decision.
"With all due respect, I just visited with Billy Gibbons for about 10 minutes, and he told me to come out and they are going to have to postpone and they are very sorry," he said, adding: "They are not canceling the show, he told me to tell you guys, they are going to try to come back. Hang on to your tickets."
As of press time, no information about the band member who was injured has been released by ZZ Top on their social media pages. We'll bring you more info when we have it.
Make sure you tune into The RockShow Friday morning. Wes and Heathen will bring you any updates they have on the situation.
From all of us at KFMX, we're sorry for the inconvenience and know y'all were pumped to see the legends live in concert. We were, too. Hopefully, the band member's injury isn't too serious and we'll be able to get ZZ Top back in the Hub City soon.
