David Lee Roth has released his first statements since the cancellation of a series of farewell shows in Las Vegas.
“Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, we liked it … Covid canceled,” wrote the rocker in a message shared with GE. “The future shows? When the benefit concerts for Colorado, Farm Aid, and hospital workers “everywhere” arrive; Call me..”
In a statement similar to Fox news, Roth added, “It’s not about me anymore.”
In October, former frontman Van Halen announced that his residency at the House of Blues Las Vegas, set to begin on New Years Eve, would be the last performance of his career.
“I throw in the shoes. I’m retiring, “the singer revealed to the Las Vegas Review at the time. Roth added that he was “encouraged and compelled to really understand how short time is, and my time is probably even shorter,” adding that “my doctors, my managers, have made me really tackle this every day. once I go on stage, I put that future in danger.
Initially, Roth only canceled the first two dates of his farewell residency, “Due to unforeseen circumstances related to COVID and out of caution for those who work and attend shows.” The rest of the shows remained on the schedule briefly, before being canceled a few days later.
Roth’s last concert was on March 10, 2020 at the United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas. The rocker was opening Kiss’s End of the Road tour at the time and there were plenty of other dates on the schedule before the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly cut off live music.
