There’s been no word about when Van Halen might perform live again, but fans of the band will have the chance to see frontman David Lee Roth in concert next year. He’s launching a new residency at Sin City’s House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
The David Lee Roth: Rocks Vegas residency will begin with a three-show engagement on January 8, 10 and 11, and will continue when Diamond Dave returns for six more shows during the second half of March.
Roth’s Vegas concerts will feature a changing set that will include 26 songs drawn from his tenure with Van Halen and from his solo career, among them “Jump,” “Panama” and Dave’s hit take on The Beach Boys‘ “California Girls.”
“A weekend with me is interactive way beyond just music,” says Roth in a statement. “It starts with the best food on earth. The fellas smoke their three cigarettes for the year and we all stay up way past our bedtime!”
Adds Live Nation executive Ben Weeden, “House of Blues Las Vegas is known as an intimate venue where fans can see huge, legendary acts, and that tradition continues with David joining our family.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public this Saturday, September 14, at 10 a.m. PT at Ticketmaster.com, HouseofBlues.com and MandalayBay.com, or by calling 800-745-3000.
Presale opportunities begin this Tuesday, September 10; for more details, visit LiveNationEntertainment.com.

January 8, 10-11
March 18, 20-21, 25, 27-28
