Former VAN HALEN frontman Dave Lee Roth has postponed all his remaining concerts indefinitely.
"It's due to medical reasons," Colyn Bohan, assistant to the vice president of Fantasma Productions, Roth's booking agency, told Southwest Florida's News-Press.com.
Bohan would not discuss what is ailing the former VAN HALEN singer other than noting that "he's not seriously ill."
Roth had previously postponed his September 20 show at House Of Blues in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in order to spend a couple of extra days recovering from injuries sustained in a bar-spinning incident at Kenswick Theatre in Glenside, Pennsylvania last Wednesday (September 17).
The incident, which resulted in Dave having to get 21 stitches about an inch above his eye, happened when Roth "hit himself with a microphone stand or cable he was swinging [during the encore, 'Jump']," Roy Snyder, the executive director of Kenswick Theatre, told Bucks County Courier Times.
Roth, 47, finished the show for the audience of about 1,000 fans. After he left the stage, someone called for a wet cloth, said Snyder, who was on the opposite side and didn't see the incident.
Peg Welty, director of marketing for the Mann Hall, said those who purchased tickets can hold on to them and the tickets will be honored once the concert is rescheduled.
"They can do that or come to the box office for a refund," she said.
The concert has not been rescheduled yet. "We're trying to do that now," Welty said.
Roth was scheduled to play in Tampa on Monday, followed by Fort Myers on Wednesday, Orlando on Friday and Pompano Beach on Saturday.
