Mammoth WVH Drop Off Remaining Dates Of “Young Guns” Tour Due To Positive COVID-19 Cases

Mammoth WVH have dropped off the remaining dates of their “Young Guns” tour due to positive COVID-19 cases within their camp. Despite this, Dirty Honey will still play the shows as planned.

Wolfgang Van Halen commented:

“After an incredible weekend in Las Vegas with my family for the GRAMMYS, I flew back yesterday to meet up with my band and crew in North Carolina to continue the Young Guns tour.

This morning as everyone took COVID tests to re establish the bubble that has served us on the tour, we came to find that members of our band and crew who didn’t travel with me were positive. I have tested negative via rapid and PCR tests for the last 5 days in preparation for the GRAMMYS and still continue to do so.

With only 6 shows left in the tour, it breaks my heart that we unfortunately won’t be able to continue. Mammoth WVH will do our very best to make up the dates that we missed to the fans in those markets in the future.”

Dirty Honey To Kick Off NHL’s Winter Classic With Cover Of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy”

Dirty Honey have recorded a cover of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” for the kickoff of the 2022 National Hockey League Winter Classic, which is set take place on New Year’s Day (January 1). The performance, which was filmed on a frozen lake in Minnesota, will air as part of TNT’s event coverage.

Turner Sports’ Tyler Lassiter commented:

“I found out about Dirty Honey through former NHL player Scottie Upshall and have been a fan of the band ever since. I had read that Marc LaBelle was a big hockey guy, and as soon as we landed the NHL deal on TNT earlier this year, my first thought was that we would do something with these guys at some point. When we came up with this concept, all the stars seemed to align. We needed a band who could faithfully pull off a legit Prince cover as well as one passionate enough to agree to shoot on a frozen lake in northern Minnesota in mid-December. The boys crushed it.”

Dirty Honey’s cover of “Let’s Go Crazy” will also be available on all DSPs on January 1 as well. The NHL pre-game will begin at 6 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. CT / 3 p.m. PT.
