ZZ Top cancel European tour

Due to benign growth

ZZ Top cancel European tour
ZZ Top have cancelled their European tour - so bassist Dusty Hill can undergo treatment for a benign growth in his inner ear that’s affecting his hearing.

Dr Shawn Nasseri said that preliminary plans do not include surgery.

In a statement he said: “In the near-term, we plan to stabilise Dusty’s hearing and symptoms with medication and a conservative management strategy.”

The European tour was due to begin on June 15 in Leipzig, Germany and run to early July. US dates, which start on July 15 in Dallas, are not expected to be affected.

Hill told Yahoo News: “I’m looking forward to dealing with this problem and getting back out there with Billy and Frank…I’m sure we’ll put this behind us very shortly.”
