Citing a travel-related injury to bassist Dusty Hill, ZZ Top has cancelled several upcoming appearances on its current tour with Jeff Beck, including this Sunday’s scheduled stop at Foxwoods.

Jeff Beck and his band — singer Jimmy Hall, bassist Rhonda Smith, drummer Jonathan Joseph and second guitarist Nicolas Meier — will perform as scheduled. Tyler Bryant, a guitarist from Honey Grove, Texas, will open the show.

“While we are very disappointed to not continue this tour with ZZ Top, our thoughts and best wishes are for Dusty to have a speedy recovery,” Beck said in a press release.

According to a Foxwoods statement, ticket purchases will automatically be refunded. If you had a ticket and you still want to attend, you’ll have to buy a new one at foxwoods.com or by calling 800-200-2882. (You can also use the credit from the original purchase toward new tickets.)
