Wolf Van Halen Honored to Play ‘Very First Rock Show’ at Raiders Stadium, Drops Epic Stage Pic

Wolf Van Halen has been living through a lot of firsts lately.

The rock singer recently put out his very first debut album under his new band name, Mammoth WVH. During the recordings, it’s Wolf Van Halen that is singing and playing all the instruments. It’s all proof of just how much talent the young artist has accumulated over the years.

Another first for the “Distance” singer is his current tour alongside iconic rock group Guns N’ Roses. Wolf Van Halen is on guitar and lead vocals and he has Frank Sidoris, Jon Jourdan, Garrett Whitlock, and Ronnie Ficarro as members of his band for the tour.

Recently, Guns N’ Roses and Mammoth WVH made an appearance in Vegas. Van Halen posted an epic photo on his Twitter account of the band doing a curtain call of sorts in front of the massive group of fans and bright shining lights.

Wolf captioned the photo, “VEGAS!!!! That was killer!! What an honor it was to play the very first rock show at @AllegiantStadm with @gunsnroses!!”

This is another first for Mammoth WVH as well as the rest of the world. This is the first time a rock band has taken the stage at the all-new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. It’s located right near the main strip in downtown Vegas.

Future performers at the stadium include EDM artist Illenium and Garth Brooks, that is until he recently canceled his tour due to COVID-19 concerns. The stadium will be used for many upcoming American football games as well.

Recently, Wolf Van Halen has hit a couple of roadblocks during his tour.

One of which was when his road manager and uncle, Patrick Bertinelli, informed Van Halen that someone in the crew had a positive COVID-19 test result. The entire crew did receive COVID-19 vaccinations as well.

According to the Los Angeles Times, this forced the group to cancel a week’s worth of shows. This included the Whisky a Go-Go show that was sold out in Los Angeles. Ironically, he had told the news outlet earlier in the interview that the whole experience has been “stress-free because we’re the opening band. Nobody’s here to really see us.” 

The venue would have been an important milestone. The venue is rescheduled for October 12. It’s also where Van Halen’s videos for “Runnin’ With the Devil” and “You Really Got Me” were recorded.

The tour is still going on as of now. When it comes to future music, however, Wolf Van Halen admits a writer’s block of sorts.

“The past year-and-a-half hasn’t been a really creative time for me. There was a lot that’s taken my attention away from wanting to write music … as life started to really happen, I lost that creative bug — just the weight of everything,” he told the news outlet.
