ZZ Top Cancels Opening Act at Buffett’s Frisco Show

May 17th, 2016

According to Guidelive.com, ZZ Top is cancelling its opening appearance at Jimmy Buffett’s concert in Frisco, TX later this month:

Sorry to anyone wanting to belt “Sharp Dressed Man” alongside ZZ Top live on Memorial Day Weekend in Frisco. ZZ Top will not be opening for Jimmy Buffett at the May 28 concert at Toyota Stadium as originally planned. Texas country singer Jerry Jeff Walker is the opening act replacement.

ZZ Top has postponed its tour indefinitely while Dallas-born lead singer Dusty Hill recovers from a fractured shoulder. The band reports that they plan a tour in September, though no Texas dates are yet on the lineup.

The lack of the bearded duo at Buffett is a bummer, but many Texas music fans will welcome Jerry Jeff. Surely, he’ll play his famous “Mr. Bojangles” in addition to a slew of outlaw country songs that have made him one of the more notable living Texas country artists.
