Statement Regarding Passing of ZZ Top Bassist Dusty Hill
The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (HSC) and Trail Drive Management Corp. join in mourning the loss of rock and roll legend Dusty Hill and send our condolences to the ZZ Top family.
The Oct. 4 show at Dickies Arena featuring ZZ Top, Pat Green and Zach Bryan is still scheduled and will go on sale this Friday, Aug. 6 at 10 a.m. Long-time friend of the band Elwood Francis will step in as ZZ Top’s bassist.
ZZ Top resumed their tour last Friday with Elwood, who was ZZ Top’s long-time guitar tech. The band will play at Dickies Arena before continuing their U.S. tour, which includes a five-night stint in Las Vegas.
Texas trio and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, ZZ TOP, will be the featured artist for the 2021 Legends Concert Series – the signature fundraising event for The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (HSC).
The benefit, presented by JPMorgan Chase, will take place on Monday, Oct. 4 at Dickies Arena. Doors will open at 6 p.m. with opening act Zach Bryan followed by Pat Green before ZZ Top takes the stage. Exclusive sponsorship opportunities are available now and tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, July 30.
Proceeds will contribute to the HSC Legends Scholarship Fund, which supports student scholarships. These generous dollars equally benefit each of the six HSC schools, including the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine.
Since the inaugural Legends event in 2013, more than $2 million has been raised to support HSC’s patient-centered education, ground-breaking research, and outstanding clinical care.
ZZ TOP, also known at ‘That Little Ol’ Band from Texas’ is the longest running major rock band with its original members intact. Band members – Billy F. Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard – have been making music together for almost 50 years.
The group, designated as Heroes of the State of Texas, has been referenced in cartoons and television shows. Their enduring popularity with fans made them a rock institution.
