Video footage of David Lee Roth and his band practicing for upcoming Las Vegas residency
Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth and his band held a practice for a select few invited guests at SIR Rehearsal Studios in Los Angeles, California, USA on September 26, 2019 in advance of the singer’s upcoming Las Vegas residency at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA in January and March 2020.
The video footage that was released on Facebook captures snippets of Roth and his band playing Van Halen classics “Atomic Punk,” “Ain’t Talkin’ About Love,” “Dance The Night Away,” “Runnin’ With The Devil” and “Panama.”
Earlier this month, Roth was interviewed by the radio station KHSE 95 and stated (as transcribed by Sleaze Roxx):
“In terms of the music, I start where the record starts. We do not sound like Van Halen live. You have not heard this. Van Halen live is lead, bass, drum, sing. Here we start with three, four guitars and we bring it with an unforgiving attitude. We’re not strumming with the devil. This is not some tribute band.”
