BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Fans of ZZ Top will have to wait a little longer to see the band perform in Biloxi. Friday night's concert at the Beau Rivage Theater has been postponed due to an injury to bass player Dusty Hill.

Hill fractured his shoulder before the start of last Thursday's show in Lubbock, TX. The injury has already been treated, and Hill is on his way to recovery.

“Dusty was suited up and ready to go when he tripped on a step while on his way to the stage for the start of Thursday’s show.  It was very dark back there and the step – really a half-step – wasn’t lit so there’s no way he could’ve seen it,” said the band’s manager, Carl Stubner. “We found out that others had missed it and stumbled earlier in the day. Maybe some strategic lighting could’ve prevented this, but that’s water under the bridge.  What’s important now is that Dusty and his medical team to do what’s necessary for a complete recovery.”

“My physicians told me that this type of injury is usually associated with contact sports.  I’m not sure bass-playing qualifies as such, but they’re doing their best to get me back in the game as soon as possible,” said Hill on zztop.com

The Beau Rivage said the rescheduled concert will take place sometime in October.
