Wolfgang Van Halen has announced a slate of new headlining shows for Mammoth WVH this fall with Female rock outfit, Plush in tow. We have the list for you below.
Wolfgang is the son of the late, great Eddie Van Halen. The legendary guitarist behind Van Halen gave his son, Wolfie, permission to use the Mammoth name as it was the original name of the band before it became Van Halen.
WVH talked about touring during a pandemic, here is what he had to say.
“I’m a super-germaphobic sort of guy. We’ve got a whole bubble of people on here. We’re all being safe, we’re all being tested. We’re all vaccinated. We’re all wearing our masks every opportunity we can. We’re just kind of staying in the bubble and being as safe as possible. I’m a singer and I don’t want a respiratory illness,” he explained. “I don’t care if it doesn’t kill you or if it’s not that bad. I just don’t want a respiratory illness, because it will ruin my job.”
