David Lee Roth has issued his first statements after remaining silent about the cancellation of his residency at the House of Blues Las Vegas.
At first, Roth only posted on his Instagram an artwork with the words, “A funny thing happened on the way to Las Vegas.”
But according to EW, Roth said,
“Sometimes you win, Sometimes you lose, We got rained out… Covid cancelled,” and continued, “Future shows? When the benefit concerts for Colorado, Farm Aid, and hospital workers ‘everywhere’ come up; Call me..”
In another statement to Fox News, Roth added,
“It’s not about me anymore.”
Roth’s sold-out New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day show and other scheduled performances are cancelled due to concerns about the rapid spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant. The venue organizers confirmed the news to the Las Vegas Review Journal and released a statement saying,
“Due to unforeseen circumstances related to COVID and out of an abundance of caution for those working and attending the shows, the David Lee Roth performances scheduled for Dec. 31, 2021 and Jan. 1, 2022, have been canceled. Refunds will be automatically processed, and ticketholders will be notified directly.”
After the death of Eddie Van Halen, Roth was concerned about his own health issues which made him to decide that he’s retiring from his career as a rock and roll stage performer. The former Van Halen frontman planned to do his farewell shows at this residency.
