DAVID LEE ROTH ADDS DATES TO HIS LAS VEGAS RESIDENCY
David Lee Roth has added four more shows to his upcoming Las Vegas residency.
In addition to playing at Mandalay Bay’s House Of Blues on December 31st, January 1st, 5th, 7th and 8th, the Van Halen singer will now also also perform on January 14th-15th and January 21st-22nd.
Roth Las Vegas residency dates are now as follows:
December 31st, 2021
January 1st, 5th, 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd, 2022
Roth explained his decision to extend the residency in an audio message earlier today. He said (as transcribed by blabbermouth.net), “…David Lee here…I had no idea how many of you wanted to pay to see me go. [Laughs] So I’m putting more tickets on sale, instead of doing the wrong thing and pissing more people off. I have industry professionals now ringing in, telling me, ‘Dave, at your age, you should be in the middle of your third retirement. Did you watch ‘Rocky‘ movies? He’s on his seventh. Same guy, ‘Rambo‘ — fifth. He’s about 14 retirements ahead of you.’ Just when I get out, they drag me back in.
…I’m gonna extend my world goodbye tour of Las Vegas at the House Of Blues for two more weekends — like any good f–king barbecue. Just like you would, if you could.”
In early October Roth told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “I am throwing in the shoes. I’m retiring. This is the first, and only, official announcement. … You’ve got the news. Share it with the world.”
