Aug. 29--ZZ Top has cancelled their Sunday concert in the Grand Theater at Foxwoods, but co-headliner Jeff Beck will still perform.

According to USA Today, Top bassist Dusty Hill injured his hip on the band's tour bus and dates through Sept. 13 have been scrapped.

Guitarist Tyler Bryant, who appeared with Beck, Carlos Santana and Slash in the film "Rock Prophecies," will now open Sunday's show.

The ticket price for the Beck/Bryant show has been reduced to $50.
