David Lee Roth has opened his solo show in Las Vegas and the reviews have been pretty average.

Rock critic Eddie Trunk said “he is out there wiggling around a little bit…a guy who is 65 years old is out there shaking his ass and doing the best he can. It ain’t great. It hasn’t been great in a really long time”.

Alternative Nation reported that Roth was heckled by Van Halen fans at one show but they didn’t go into details.
