David Lee Roth’s first two scheduled shows in Las Vegas have been canceled due to COVID-related concerns.
From Las Vegas television network KTNV:
David Lee Roth’s shows at House of Blues this weekend have been canceled according to a press release sent to 13 Action News.
The shows were sold out.
The statement sent on behalf of the venue stated:
“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.”
No other information was provided.
The VHND had been awaiting reviews of this weekend’s shows from Darren Paltrowitz, co-host of the David Lee Roth podcast The DLR Cast. Paltrowitz made the trip to Vegas to see several DLR shows.
“My wife Melissa and I were lucky enough to turn a Vegas vacation alongside my parents into a Vegas residency of our own when DLR announced his shows in Vegas,” said Paltrowitz. “Then when he announced they were his last five shows, we went from attending the first two to all five of the shows. Then he announced four more and we decided to buy tickets to two of those. Well, we’re here, day six of the trip, the first two shows get cancelled right after we check into Mandalay Bay. We’ll stick around and hope to see Diamond Dave in action and meet some listeners of The DLR Cast. If not, well, uh, 1-800-SEE-YA?”
Hopefully we’ll get those reviews with Roth still scheduled to perform at House of Blues on January 5, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22.
