DAVID LEE ROTH's Flu Forces VAN HALEN Concert Cancelation

August 23, 2015

VAN HALEN was forced to cancel tonight's (Sunday, August 23) scheduled concert in Hershey, Pennsylvania after lead singer David Lee Roth was advised by doctors not to perform due to a bout with the flu.

The band's official statement reads as follows: "Due to David Lee Roth suffering from the flu and the doctor recommending he rest his throat, VAN HALEN's concert tonight at Hersheypark Stadium has been cancelled. Refunds will be available at point of purchase."

VAN HALEN bassist Wolfgang Van Halen added in a Facebook post: "This sucks… To all the fans, we are SO sorry. This is such a huge bummer. We were really looking forward to this show… I really wish this wasn't the situation."

VAN HALEN's next performance is scheduled for Tuesday, August 25 in Darien Center, New York.

The tour will wrap on October 4 at the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, California.

The trek is VAN HALEN's first since an aborted North American run three years ago in support of its then-new studio album, "A Different Kind Of Truth".
