Sorry rock fans, but ZZ Top won’t be coming to Boston next week.

The legendary rock group was forced to cancel a number of upcoming shows, including their appearance at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion on Sept. 2, after bassist Dusty Hill slipped on the band’s tour bus and injured his hip on Tuesday.

Hill and his bandmates were on their way back to Clarkston, Mich., to play at the DTE Energy Music Theatre when the accident occurred, according to Billboard.

Live Nation announced the cancellations on Wednesday, saying that the 65-year-old bassist needed “immediate attention” following the injury and that all shows through Sept. 13 will be suspended.

Jeff Beck, who’s been touring with ZZ Top this summer, will still be performing at a few of the upcoming dates, including stops in Salamanca, N.Y. on Aug. 29, Atlantic City on Aug. 30, and Mashantucket, Conn. on Aug. 31. Ticket holders to these dates are being asked to hold onto their tickets due to possible rescheduling.

Fans who have tickets to the other cancelled dates will be offered refunds.
