He “throws shoes” early.
David Lee Roth announced Monday that he has canceled all remaining “retirement” shows in Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
His last performances at the Blues House in Mandalay Bay were scheduled for Wednesday, Friday and Saturday this week, as well as four extra days in January and two days in February.
According to the Review-Journal, the 67-year-old has not officially announced his cancellation, nor has Live Nation.
It is unknown whether the often-sold “House of Blues” shows will be rescheduled or postponed.
The post contacted representatives of Roth and Live Nation for comment.
Roth had previously postponed two shows, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s performances, to February 11 and February 12, “due to unforeseen circumstances related to COVID and with extreme caution for those working and attending the shows.”
The former Van Halen owner announced his resignation for the first time in October and told Review-Journal that he had left rock-n-roll due to ill health.
“I’m throwing away my shoes. I will retire, ”he told the newspaper. “This is the first and only official announcement. My doctors and teachers forced me to say that every time I went on stage, I risked my future.
Roth, who is known for his participation in the high-energy scene, also said they would “try not to interrupt” the outlet because he “wanted to close my eyes and take you on a walk.”
Rocker also told the publication that the death of his former teammate Eddie Van Helen – which he called “the departure of my favorite classmate” – shocked him.
“I was encouraged and forced to understand how short time really is, and my time is even shorter than that,” Roth said, noting that he thought Van Halen would be the first “member” to die.
“Hey Ed, the things in the rearview mirror must be me,” he added. “And my doctors, my teachers, forced me to say that every time I went on stage, I was threatening the future.”
When asked for more information about his retirement, Roth added: “I don’t want to explain this statement. The explanation is in the safe. This is my last five performances.”
