April 29 performance was part of band’s 50th anniversary Canadian tour

Victoria music fans will have to wait a little longer to go crazy for a sharp-dressed man.

Beloved rock band ZZ Top, along with special guest Cheap Trick, has postponed their 50th anniversary Canadian tour due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The performance was scheduled for April 29 at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

“In abundance of caution during this time, we are rescheduling the Canada leg of “A Celebration with ZZ Top. This was an extremely difficult decision for the band, but we feel it’s the responsible thing to do,” according to a press release from the band.
