WOLFGANG VAN HALEN's Wedding To Be Held In October
September 7, 2023
Wolfgang Van Halen, the 32-year-old son of VAN HALEN legend Eddie Van Halen, spoke to "Extra"'s Billy Bush about his wedding plans with his fiancée Andraia Allsop as they get set to tie the knot in October, noting, "By the time we get married, it'll be seven to eight years [together]."
Wolfgang's mom Valerie Bertinelli will be on hand for his special day. He said: "She'll be crying the whole time. She's probably crying right now just thinking about it."
Last month, Wolfgang told Consequence that he and his fiancée have picked the Peter Gabriel classic "In Your Eyes" as their wedding song. As to how they chose that track, Wolfgang said: "Peter Gabriel is one of our favorite artists. There's a concert before our wedding that we're going to see that's Peter Gabriel, because he's on tour right now and he's just one of our favorite artists. So is one of my favorite albums of all time, and it was one of my dad's favorite albums of all time. So, I've just had a connection with Peter Gabriel and his music forever, and simultaneously, my fiancée [is a fan], as well. So, we couldn't think of a better song."
Wolfgang, who is the frontman of his band MAMMOTH WVH, broke the news of his engagement to Andraia in tweet in July 2022. "She said yes!!" he captioned a selfie of himself and his fiancée.
Andraia and Wolfgang, who have been a couple since December 2015, attended the 64th annual Grammy Awards together in April 2022.
Allsop reportedly graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor's degree in computer science, and went on to work as a software engineer.
Allsop has an Instagram account exclusively for her photography. In it, she documents photos from Van Halen's concerts.
In 2021, Wolfgang spoke to People magazine about his tight-knit relationship with his mother Valerie Bertinelli and how the grief following the death of his father brought them even closer together.
"My girlfriend and I pretty much go over to my mom's house every day to see her and play with her cats that we love," he said.
"I think a lot of people don't understand how sarcastic our relationship is," he added about his mother. "One time, she burnt onion rings. And it's like, she has a cooking show, so I just made fun of her for it. I asked her if I could post it. We get in GIF battles all the time on Twitter. Sarcasm is a language, And that's how we communicate."
MAMMOTH WVH released its sophomore album, "II", on August 4 via BMG. The 10-track record was recorded at the legendary 5150 studio and was produced by Wolfgang's friend and collaborator Michael "Elvis" Baskette.
MAMMOTH WVH recently announced a headline tour this fall in support of "Mammoth II". These dates come on the heels of the band's successful European tour that saw them opening for METALLICA, ALTER BRIDGE and DEF LEPPARD/MÖTLEY CRÜE. The headline tour will kick off November 4 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and run through December 9 when MAMMOTH WVH returns home to Los Angeles.
