Due to members of the touring party testing positive for COVID-19, Wolfgang Van Halen’s band Mammoth WVH has canceled the remaining six performances on the Young Guns tour with Dirty Honey.

The news was shared on Tuesday afternoon, with Wolfgang issuing 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. I have tested negative via rapid and PCR tests for the last 5 days in preparation for the GRAMMYS and still continue to do so. With only 6 shows left in the tour, it breaks my heart that we unfortunately won’t be able to continue. Mammoth WVH will do our very best to make up the dates that we missed to the fans in those markets in the future.”

Mammoth WVH had been nominated for Best Rock Song for “Distance,” Van Halen’s touching, emotional anthem in tribute to his late father, Eddie Van Halen. The song was featured on Mammoth WVH’s powerhouse debut album, released in June 2021.

This tour with Dirty Honey had already been rescheduled due to COVID-19 safety concerns, though a number of shows were able to take place on the new schedule until this latest development.

The affected/canceled dates:

5 The Ritz, Raleigh, NC
6 The Fillmore, Charlotte, NC
8 Marathon Music Works, Nashville, TN
9 The Plant, Dothan, AL
10 Hard Rock Orlando, Orlando, FL
12 Tabernacle, Atlanta, GA
