As reported back in December, it’s gonna be a busy year for Diamond Dave. Aside from his Las Vegas residency, he’s also set to open for KISS in between breaks for the band’s arena tour.
Speaking to Las Vegas Review-Journal, Roth talked about his shows at the House of Blues: “It’s nice and tight, you can see everybody’s faces, you can see eyebrows. I’ve said that dogs are more popular than cats because they have eyebrows. You can tell what the dog is thinking. Kitty cats, they’re like strippers: You can’t tell what they’re thinking.”
One thing’s for sure, David Lee Roth didn’t disappoint. Watch the videos below.
