David Lee Roth’s presence displeased a portion of Wednesday’s audience of more than 10,000. A few disappointed fans exiting the Bonner Springs venue at the conclusion of the concert initiated a chant of “Sammy Hagar.”
While Roth is in tremendous physical condition and can still twirl a microphone stand like a standout member of a high school drill team, Roth has lost his voice. He’s also a shameless ham. Roth seemed to channel Jerry Lewis’ antics in the 1963 comedy “The Nutty Professor” during Van Halen’s two-hour outing.
David Lee Roth's Van Halen is the band I grew up loving, but let's face it. Sammy Hagar is better.
