ZZ Top Forced To Withdraw From Welcome To Rockville


Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville has announced a schedule change to the May 1 festival lineup at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville, Florida.

Regrettably, ZZ Top has canceled their spring tour–including their May 1 scheduled performance at Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville–due to an injury.

The band has released the following statement:

“Last Thursday, Dusty Hill was injured at the Lone Star Events Center in
Lubbock, Texas that prevented the evening’s ZZ Top performance from taking place. Dusty has subsequently undergone treatment for a fractured shoulder. ZZ Top’s concert dates on the current tour have been postponed through May 7.

Dusty Hill offered this comment, “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. Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes we’ve received. We’re determined to enjoy a speedy recovery and see you soon!”

The schedule for the Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville will be adjusted to allow extended performance times for Rob Zombie and Five Finger Death Punch in ZZ Top’s absence.

The sixth annual Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville, Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1 features a lineup including rock icon/filmmaker Rob Zombie, Disturbed (who have returned after a 4-year hiatus with their #1 album Immortalized), Jacksonville’s own Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch, A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, SIXX:A.M., Megadeth, Lamb Of God, and many more. 2016 marks the return of Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville Tequila World Presented by El Jimador and the debut of Gourmet Man Food, Craft Beer selections, and the Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Row Experience.
