MUSIC

David Lee Roth

David Lee Roth wasn’t born on stage, but he was most certainly born again on stage, rechristened “Diamond Dave,” a showman’s showman and leg kick incarnate who added still more swagger to the role of rock ’n’ roll frontman as singer for Van Halen. With that band no longer touring, Roth has struck out on his own, putting together a Vegas variety show spanning plenty of Van Halen hits as well as various standards of his own. Run with the devil once more at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday (plus Jan. 10 and 11) at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Tickets start at $63.50; call 702-632-7600.
