David Lee Roth (opens in new tab) has announced a Las Vegas residency which will take place in early 2020.

Diamond Dave will play a total of nine dates between January and March at the city’s House Of Blues, with the singer set to sprinkle the set with solo tracks and Van Halen (opens in new tab) classics such as Jump, Panama and California Girls.

Roth says: “A weekend with me is interactive way beyond just music. 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!”

Roth becomes the latest rock artist to line up a Sin City residency following recent stints by Aerosmith (opens in new tab) and Def Leppard (opens in new tab).

Roth will play on January 8, January 10-11, March 18, March 20-21, March 25 and March 27-28.

Roth last took part in a Vegas residency back in 1995 when he hooked up with the 14-piece Blues-Bustin’ Mambo Slammers.

In April, Roth surprised the crowd at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami to perform a remake of Jump with DJ Armin van Buuren – a remix which was later released (opens in new tab).

Earlier this year, bassist Michael Anthony revealed that a rumoured Van Halen reunion tour was due to take place this year (opens in new tab), but those plans were scrapped.
