MAMMOTH WVH has canceled the remaining six shows of the “Young Guns” tour starting with tonight’s (Tuesday, April 5) performance in Raleigh, North Carolina at The Ritz due to members of the touring personnel testing positive for COVID-19. The other affected dates are April 6 in Charlotte, North Carolina; April 8 in Nashville, Tennessee; April 9 in Dothan, Alabama; April 10 in Orlando, Florida; and April 12 in Orlando, Florida. Refunds are available at point of purchase for anyone who purchased a ticket to see MAMMOTH WVHDIRTY HONEY will still perform at the scheduled dates as advertised.

MAMMOTH WVH frontman Wolfgang Van Halen explained: “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 five days in preparation for the Grammys and still continue to do so. With only six 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.”

Wolfgang returned from the 64th annual Grammy Awards in Las Vegas and the positive tests were confirmed as everyone attempted to re-enter the COVID bubble being maintained on the tour. Wolfgang has had numerous tests to participate in all of the Grammy activities and all tests were negative.
