ZZ Top Biloxi show rescheduled for October 21

Texas rockers ZZ Top have rescheduled their April 22 show at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, the band announced.

They will now play the show at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21.

The April show was canceled after bassist Dust Hill fell while going to the stage at the Lone Star Events Center in Lubbock, Texas, a couple of days before the Biloxi show.

ZZ Top's manager Carl Stubner said Hill's injury sidelined all tour dates through May 7.

"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 the show," Stubner said. "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 or prevented this, but that's water under the bridge."

Canceled dates were Shreveport; Biloxi; Lake Charles, La.; Augusta, Ga.; Atlanta; Sarasota, Fla.; Naples, Fla.; Clearwater, Fla.; and Shawnee, Okla.
