The ZZ Top and Cheap Trick concert originally scheduled for April 29th at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre has been postponed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new concert, featuring the two Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bands, will take place next year — a new date has yet to be announced.

The tour dubbed “Celebration with ZZ Top” was set to start on Vancouver Island and included several performances in Western Canada.

“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,” promoters said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Keep an eye on our website and socials and the venue websites for further information and updates. Thank you all for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you all on the road soon.”

Most dates of the tour have been rescheduled, while some, including Victoria, have yet to be announced. Other B.C. dates for 2021 include Abbotsford on April 23, Penticton on April 24 and Kamloops on April 25.

All previously purchased tickets will be honoured at rescheduled shows.Ticket holders will receive further details once a new date is announced.
