Mammoth WVH’s stint on the Young Guns tour has ended earlier than expected: Wolfgang Van Halen and company are canceling the final six shows on the tour, which also features Dirty Honey. The reason for the cancellation?  COVID, of course.

Van Halen says in a statement, “After an incredible weekend in Las Vegas with my family for the Grammys, I flew back yesterday to meet up with my band and crew in North Carolina to continue the Young Guns tour. This morning, as everyone took COVID tests to re-establish the bubble that has served us on the tour, we came to find that members of our band and crew who didn’t travel with me were positive.”  Van Halen himself is negative.

“With only 6 shows left in the tour, it breaks my heart that we unfortunately won’t be able to continue,” he adds. “Mammoth WVH will do our very best to make up the dates that we missed to the fans in those markets in the future.”

Dirty Honey will still perform on the affected dates, which include tonight’s show in Raleigh, NC, as well as April 6 in Charlotte, April 8 in Nashville, April 9 in Dothan, AL, and April 10 and 12 in Orlando, FL.  Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Mammoth WVH will return to the road April 29 for a series of headlining shows.
