Remember when your parents came to your 6th grade band concerts to see you rock out on the saxophone? Well, this is cooler than that. Much cooler.
Henne Music reports that on Wednesday, (October 3rd) Eddie Van Halen was in the crowd at a Tremonti concert in Kansas City, proudly watching his son Wolfgang play bass with the group.
The youngest Van Halen rock star took to Twitter to express his excitement, writing “So glad my pop got to see the Tremonti gig tonight in KC!” with a photo of him, his dad, and his bandmates.
Wolfie then tweeted another photo the following day of his dad watching the band’s soundcheck, pointing out now that no one even noticed the elusive Eddie was there.
Wolfgang Van Halen joined Mark Tremonti’s Creed side-project in September when the band’s usual bassist, Brian Marshall, had to drop out from the tour.
The gig was perfect timing for Wolfgang, who was on hiatus with the rest of Van Halen following Eddie’s emergency surgery due to severe problems with Diverticulitis.
There’s no word yet on when Van Halen will pick up their postponed tour dates again, but it’s been reported that Eddie will need to rest for anywhere between four and six months.
In the meantime, Wolfgang will wrap up the US leg of Tremonti’s tour on October 7th in San Antonio, TX before heading overseas to play several European dates.
