As Wolfgang walked out onto the stage at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, frontman Axl Rose announced: "Let’s bring out our friend Wolfy. Wolfgang Van Halen, do you know how cool it is to say that? We’re talking legacy".
Wolfgang, son of the late iconic guitarist Eddie Van Halen, was Van Halen‘s bassist from 2006 up until his father’s death in 2020. In addition, Wolfgang played in the metal band Tremonti, and now takes on every instrument in his solo project Mammoth WVH.
Following the show, the guitarist shared a photo of the event on Twitter showing himself smiling while playing in between Slash and McKagan with the caption "What a night". In another tweet, he mused "Yeah. This actually happened.”
Guns N' Roses are currently on tour travelling around the US with Wolfgang Van Halen's Mammoth WVH in support.
