Former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth has added dates to his previously announced Las Vegas Residency at Mandalay Bay’s House Of Blues.
Roth, who plans to retire from performing live after this residency, has added four additional shows to the five previously announced dates.
He announced news shows on January 14, 15, 21 and 22 due to overwhelming demand. Previously announced dates were for December 31, January 1, 5, 7 and 8.
“I had no idea how many people wanted to see me go,” Roth said in an audio message to his fans. “Okay, that sounded wrong [laughs]. All right. Don’t turn it off. 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.”
He continued, “Look, I’m vulnerable. I feel sensitive. If I sound that way to you, I’m in the middle of my first retirement. And I’m gonna extend my world goodbye tour of Las Vegas at the House Of Blues for two more weekends — like any good f***ing barbecue. Just like you would, if you could.”
Roth originally kicked off a residency at the same venue in January 2020. However, in March 2020, he postponed the final six shows due to the coronavirus pandemic.
