(hennemusic) ZZ Top have announced that bassist Dusty Hill has been temporarily sidelined from the band’s North American tour so that he can receive treatment on his hip.

“The members of ZZ Top, Billy, and Frank, would like to share that Dusty, their fearless Bass player, is on a short detour back to Texas, to address a hip issue,” shared the pair on social media on July 23. “They await a speedy recovery and have him back pronto.

“Per Dusty’s request, ‘The show must go on!'” With that directive, ZZ Top has put the services of Mr. Elwood Francis, their trusted guitar tech of the past two decades, into play with his slide guitar, bass guitar, and harmonica playing in full swing.”

“And with Elwood to our right, rest assured ZZ Top will deliver their good time, signature show”, adds Gibbons. “Billy’s big guitar, crushing drums from Mr. Beard, and Elwood securing the bottom end continues the delivery with those famous three chords we all dig.”

ZZ Top – who launched the 2021 tour at the Delaware County Fair in Manchester, IA on July 16 – played their first show with Francis in the lineup at the Village Commons in New Lenox, IL on July 23; the trek marks the Texas band’s first live shows since an appearance at the San Antonio Stock Show And Rodeo on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020.

(hennemusic) Wolfgang Van Halen launched the live debut of Mammoth WVH with its first-ever full concert performance during a club show in Lawrence, KS on July 27.

The gig at the city’s Bottleneck venue saw the rocker deliver 12 tracks from the self-titled debut album, according to setlist.fm, starting with show-opener “Don’t Back Down” – video of which has surfaced online alongside a clip of “Think It Over.”

Wolfgang is joined by a live lineup that includes guitarists Jon Jourdan and Frank Sidoris, bassist Ronnie Ficarro and drummer Garret Whitlock. “Show number 1 is officially in the books,” shared Wolfgang on social media. “Thanks so much for coming out and sharing this special night with us, folks. I won’t forget it.”

According to the group’s live calendar, the Kansas show appears to be one of two warm-up dates for Mammoth WVH before they join Guns N’ Roses for an extended US stadium tour that will open this Saturday, July 31 in Hershey, PA; the band will also mix in headline shows of their own during the trek. Watch some fan filmed footage from the show here.
