Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth has announced that he has postponed this month's series of Las Vegas residency shows due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Roth - who launched the run with three performances in January before joining KISS last month for US dates on that band's farewell tour - was scheduled to appear for six more residency gigs at the House Of Blues this month: March 18, 20-21, 25, 27-28.
The news comes just days after Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak declared a state of emergency in the region, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
"@HOBLasVegas postponed," tweeted Roth on Sunday. "And now a word from Dave: 'Somebody get me a Doctor, just kidding.. Take your Whiskey home, not kidding..' Love Dave #DavidLeeRoth #DiamondDave #DLR"
Roth's stint on the KISS tour also came to an early end this past week when the classic rockers postponed the final three shows of the winter leg; the pair are currently scheduled to regroup in August for more North American concerts.
