Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion Announces A Line-Up Change! ZZ Top Band Member Suffers Injury!


(PCM) Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion has announced a schedule change to the May 6 festival lineup at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC.

Regrettably, ZZ Top has canceled their spring tour–including their May 6 scheduled performance at Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion–due to an injury.

The band has released the following statement:

“Last Thursday, Dusty Hill was injured at the Lone Star Events Center in Lubbock, Texas that prevented the evening’s ZZ Top performance from taking place. Dusty has subsequently undergone treatment for a fractured shoulder. ZZ Top’s concert dates on the current tour have been postponed through May 7.

Dusty Hill offered this comment, “My physicians told me that this type of injury is usually associated with contact sports. I’m not sure bass-playing qualifies as such but they’re doing their best to get me back in the game as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes we’ve received. We’re determined to enjoy a speedy recovery and see you soon!”

The schedule for the Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion main stages will be adjusted to allow bands extended performance times in ZZ Top’s absence.

In addition, 2016 Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion ticket purchasers will be offered a credit to apply to a 2017 Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion ticket purchase. Look for more details on the 2017 credit after the completion of this year’s festival at

The sixth annual Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion–May 6, 7 and 8–will feature performances from over 50 top rock artists playing on four stages, including Disturbed, Scorpions, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, Deftones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, A Day To Remember, 3 Doors Down, Alice Cooper, Bring Me The Horizon, Cypress Hill, Pennywise, Lamb Of God, and many others. The festival will also feature multiple festival experiences, premium camping facilities, and an expanded Pig Out BBQ Village, which will feature Gourmet Man Food that reflects cuisine of the region and the cultural food explosion that is happening around the country.
