Ravinia regretfully announces that the Aug. 28 concert by ZZ Top and Jeff Beck has been canceled due to injury. ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill slipped and fell on his hip while aboard his tour bus last night. As a result of Hill’s injury which requires immediate attention, all ZZ Top performance dates have been temporarily suspended while he recovers. Tour dates affected by the suspension include all of the scheduled concert bills shared with Jeff Beck through September 13.
Ravinia President and CEO Welz Kauffman said, "I, like so many people I've heard from, marked the debuts of ZZ Top and Jeff Beck together on a single night as one of the summer's must-see events. We certainly hope to welcome them back in a future season."
Those who have already purchased tickets to the ZZ Top/Jeff Beck concert need do nothing. Refunds will be automatically refunded to the original method of payment. Customers will be notified by email once this transaction is completed.
The 6 p.m. performance by saxophonist Ashu will continue as planned in Bennett Gordon Hall.
