David Lee Roth’s Las Vegas run reportedly called off
Say it isn’t so? The Las Vegas Review-Journal has reported that Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth has called off his entire run of shows at the Mandalay Bay’s House of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Back in late September 2021, Roth announced five shows at the venue on December 31, 2021 and January 1, 5, 7 and 8, 2022.
In early October 2021, the singer released an audio statement that indicated that the Las Vegas shows would essentially be the last of his career.
Later on that month, Roth released a tour poster titled The Last Tour Unless It Isn’t, suggesting that perhaps he was not retiring after his Las Vegas run of shows.
With his five Las Vegas shows selling out, Roth added four dates on January 14, 15, 21 and 22, 2022.
A few days ago, Roth postponed the first two shows of his Las Vegas run due to “unforeseen Covid circumstances” to February 11 and 12, 2022.
Earlier this evening, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported as follows: “David Lee Roth’s Las Vegas retirement flourish has fallen out, apparently because for COVID. The vaunted front man called off the entire run Monday afternoon, according to a representative of House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Roth was to perform Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and again Jan. 14-15, Jan. 21-22 and Feb. 11-12.
There has been no formal announcement from Roth or his camp, or from concert promoter Live Nation, as to why this entire sold-out series was spiked.”
Roth later posted a cryptic message on his Facebook account:
