ZZ Top Keeps On Truckin’

11:01 AM Monday 8/17/09 | |

Aerosmith canceling its tour doesn’t mean the guys in ZZ Top are just hanging out combing their beards. The lil’ ol’ band from Texas has new dates for you!

In case you just returned from Alpha Centauri, Aerosmith was forced to cancel its tour last week because of frontman Steven Tyler’s injuries resulting from falling off the stage during a performance at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota.

Aside from ruining the summer for Aerosmith fans, the tour cancellation didn’t bode well for ZZ Top, which was appearing on the tour.

But even as Aerosmith was trying to ascertain the seriousness of Tyler’s injuries, ZZ Top bandmembers and management were already prepping a “Plan B” in case the tour was kaput.

You already know that part of story. Aerosmith reps announcing late last week what fans had already guessed – that Tyler’s injuries, including a broken shoulder put the kibosh on the band’s remaining tour dates.

But ZZ Top rocks on. New, non-Aerosmith dates Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., at the Kewadin Casino Sept. 6-7; Washington, D.C., at the 9:30 Club Sept. 13-14; Boston at the Orpheum Theatre Sept. 15; New York City at the Beacon Theatre Sept. 18 and Reading, Penn., at the Sovereign Perf. Arts Center. More dates are expected to be announced.

Said ZZ Top’s Frank Beard:

“When we found out that the tour was going to be canceled, we got together and decided that since we’re ready, willing and able, we should get out there immediately and get it on and that’s exactly what we intend to do.”

    I completely agree, I first saw ZZ Top in 1975 and then in 2005, these guys are supreme live and have much more class than A-smith.  and seem to stay on stage!!

    This does not surprise me at all, ZZ Top has always been a force. All these years later they still shred in concert. They should have been the headliner on this tour anyway.
