Fans hoping to see Wolf Van Halen and Mammoth WVH got some bad news on Friday. The next two tour dates have been canceled.
Wolf Van Halen, who is the frontman of Mammoth WVH, took to his Twitter account and made the announcement.
“Mammoth WVH will not be performing tonight in Missoula, MT or Monday night in Commerce City, CO out of an abundance of caution due to a member of our touring personnel testing positing for COVID-19,” according to a statement. “All band members and other crew have tested negative at this time. We apologize to those fans we won’t be seeing over the next couple of shows. Thanks to everyone for their support and we can’t wait to be back when it’s 100% safe for everyone to do so. – Mammoth WVH”.
There was no further news released nor was the touring personnel’s name released in the statement. Wolf Van Halen, son of late Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen, has been staying busy with his own music career.
Wolf Van Halen Admits There Are Times When He Misses Late Father
But there are moments where, by his own admission, Wolf Van Halen misses his father.
On Thursday, Wolf Van Halen sent a tweet out with these words and some photos of him and Eddie together.
“I’ve had so many dreams lately where Pop and I are just doing normal things and then I realize it’s a dream,” Wolf Van Halen wrote, “stop whatever I’m doing and hug him for as long as I can until I wake up. I miss the f–k out of him. I can’t believe he’s not here anymore. I’m doing my best, Pop.”
Wolf also spoke with People about how he’s been dealing with life after his father’s death. Music has been the best therapy for the young man’s life.
“His energy is all throughout this place,” Wolf Van Halen said of his family’s recording studio. “I’m excited to continue the legacy of filling this place with music.”

He said music is a “therapeutic thing” for him and felt being able to create a tribute to Eddie “was a very helpful thing for me.”
“The big thing that helps me keep going is my dad,” Wolf said. “Because if I just gave up and stopped and crawled in a hole, which I feel like doing every day, I know he’d be really pissed off at me!”
