MAMMOTH WVH ANNOUNCES UK HEADLINE SHOWS IN JULY

AMIDST EXTENSIVE TOURING PLANS FOR 2024

NEW ALBUM MAMMOTH II OUT NOW VIA BMG





Fresh from their much lauded spot opening proceedings across the UK for guitar icon Slash with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators - which now continues across Europe through April - Mammoth WVH are delighted to announce their return to the UK for their first headline dates here.


The group will squeeze in two headline shows in July amidst a very busy touring schedule:

Mon 8th Jul - BIRMINGHAM O2 Institute 2

Tue 9th Jul - LONDON O2 Academy Islington


Special guests are yet to be announced. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 10th April at 10am BST.


Mammoth WVH have barely been off the road since the August 2023 release of their second album Mammoth II and show no signs of letting up. The live band – comprised of Wolfgang Van Halen(vocals/guitars/keyboards), Frank Sidoris (guitars), Jon Jourdan (guitars), Ronnie Ficarro (Bass) and Garrett Whitlock (drums) have already performed shows with Metallica, Alter Bridge and Sevendust, Def Leppard and Motley Crüe, and Nita Strauss.


After the Slash European dates wrap up, the group flit back to the USA for two weeks of headline dates with support from Intervals and the Welcome To Rockville festival in May, before mainland Europe beckons again through June - Mammoth WVH rejoining Metallica on their M72 World tour, plus performances at Graspop, Hellfest, and other European festivals. The quick UK visit in July is immediately followed by more US headline shows, dates with Foo Fighters, and then further Metallica US/Mexico dates with Pantera / Greta Van Fleet into September. Mammoth WVH close out November/December 2024 traversing the US with Creed and 3 Doors Down.


Tickets and VIP packages for all Mammoth WVH appearances can be found on their official website at https://www.mammothwvh.com.



Taken from current album Mammoth II, most recent single “I’m Alright” is 100% banger. The official music video picks up and continues the entertaining thread from the humorous video for “Another Celebration At The End Of The World”. The former band of Wolfgangs – who have been fired from Mammoth WVH – start their own band Mammoth WWW and enter the same Battle of the Bands as Mammoth WVH. Hearing the band rehearsing “I’m Alright,” Mammoth WWW steals the song from Mammoth WVH to surprising results. Keeping it in the family, Wolfgang’s mother - legendary actress and chef Valerie Bertinelli – also makes a cameo appearance in the video. The video can be watched at:




Continuing the tradition of writing all of the songs and performing all of the instrumentation and vocals himself, on Mammoth II, Wolfgang Van Halen set out to challenge himself to expand his sound beyond what people had already come to know him for. From the rocking opener “Right?” to Beatles-esque fade on closer “Better Than You” Mammoth II showcases the growth of Wolfgang as a songwriter, musician and especially vocalist. Songs like “Miles Above Me,” “Take a Bow” and “Waiting” are all sonically different from each other but unique to what Mammoth WVH is. Recorded at the legendary 5150 studio, Mammoth II was produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette and has piled up rave reviews across the globe, propelling Wolfgang into a plethora of worldwide magazine front covers and TV appearances.


Wolfgang also found time to guest on the song "I'm Just Ken" on the Barbie soundtrack, leading to a dazzling TV spot performing at the Oscars with Ryan Gosling and Slash last month.
