The new year isn't even here yet, but Jeff Beck just let it be known that he won't be slowing down. This morning, Beck announced that he'll headline a string of solo US dates in addition to the Beck and ZZ Top rescheduled make-up dates from this past September when the hugely successful double-bill tour was cut short due to an unfortunate injury to ZZ Top bassist, Dusty Hill.
“We’re so glad that Dusty made a full recovery and now, we are looking forward to getting back out there and finish what we started,” stated Beck.
If 2015 can't come soon enough (or you're not lucky enough to live new one of the tour stops), a DVD of Beck’s Tokyo concert from April of this year was released on November 25th. In addition to both solo and co-headlining dates with ZZ Top, Beck will complete work on his new studio album, expected next year.
Joining Beck on both the solo and double-bill tour are his band – Jimmy Hall on Vocals, Rhonda Smith on bass, Jonathan Joseph on drums and Nicolas Meier on guitar. During her downtime between tours, Beck bassist, Rhonda Smith, led a PRS Guitars sponsored clinic at Bass Player LIVE in Los Angeles last month for our sister publication, Bass Playermagazine.
