Wolfgang is the son of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, and was the band Van Halen‘s bassist from 2006 until his father’s death and the end of the group in 2020. He was also in the metal band Tremonti, and now plays every instrument in the solo project Mammoth WVH.

Van Halen tweeted a photo of himself, Slash and Duff McKagan performing, saying: “What a night.” He added in another tweet: “Yeah. This actually happened.”

Van Halen also paid tribute online to three-time Van Halen singer David Lee Roth, who had announced the same day that he would be retiring from music.

“Hell of a run Dave,” Van Halen said. He added: “Thankful and proud to be a small part of your amazing journey.”

The first two will be performed on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, respectively, with the remaining three taking place on January 5, 7 and 8 in 2022.
