Wolfgang Van Halen announces Mammoth WVH North American tour

Wolfgang Van Halen has announced dates for a Mammoth WVH North American tour.

Set to open in Milwaukee, WI on November 4, the fall series – with guest Nita Strauss – will support the band’s second album, “Mammoth II”, which, like the 2021 self-titled debut, was produced by Michael Baskette and recorded at the famed 5150 studios.

Due August 4, the project marks the group’s first album as part of a new deal with BMG and features the third and current single, “Take A Bow.”

These dates come on the heels of the band's successful European tour last month that saw them opening for Metallica, Alter Bridge, and Def Leppard/Motley Crue, and, come as Mammoth picks up their spot opening for Metallica in the US for their previously announced dates on November 3 in St. Louis and November 10 in Detroit.

An artist pre-sale begins Tuesday, July 18 at 10 AM local (password: WVH), with general public tickets on sale Friday, July 21 at 10 AM local time.

While Wolfgang writes and records all instruments on his studio albums, his live touring band features guitarists Frank Sidoris and Jon Jourdan, bassist Ronnie Ficarro and drummer Garrett Whitlock.
