David Lee Roth announces his 2021-22 residency in Las Vegas
David Lee Roth will return to Las Vegas for a limited series of shows at the city’s House of Blues starting on New Year’s Eve.
After opening 2022 with great fanfare, Diamond Dave will stay in Sin City for four more shows on January 1, 5, 7 and 8. Tickets go on sale October 2 at 10 a.m. PT and can be purchased at the House of Blues. website.
Roth had previously descended to Las Vegas for a House of Blues residency as of January 2020. He only completed three of nine scheduled shows before postponing him due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The former Van Halen frontman also opened for Kiss during the 2020 North American leg of their End of the Road tour. Gene Simmons made headlines last month when he announced the singer would not be backing them on their 2021 shows, comparing a modern-day Roth to a swollen naked “Elvis on the bathroom floor. “. Roth responded by posting 18 identical photos of a child wearing sunglasses and raising his middle finger with the caption “Roth to Simmons”.
Simmons then apologized to Roth in an interview with Us weekly. “I wasn’t talking about David, but that doesn’t matter,” he said of the comparison to Elvis Presley. “What matters is that I hurt David’s feelings, and that’s more important than intention. So I sincerely apologize. I didn’t want to hurt his feelings. It reminds me of the guy coming out of a truck and saying, ‘Hey, I’m sorry, mate. I didn’t mean to crush you. Well, what’s the difference? You have been crushed. “
Roth teased his return to Vegas earlier this month at the MTV Video Music Awards, where he also paid tribute to guitarist Eddie Van Halen, who died in October 2020. “He’s either in Heaven or he’s in Hell, so in paradise, ”said Roth. “Read this as you wish. And he wanted me to say it like that. And I perpetuate that spirit on purpose. “
