The event was staged to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the group which featured with guitarist Steve Vai, bassist Billy Sheehan, drummer Greg Bissonette and was to be part of Lucky Strike Live Hollywood/Highland's Ultimate Jam Night.
BraveWords has posted a report about the cancelation which includes video of David Lee Roth interacting with fans as he was leaving the venue. "I apologize about this evening", the Van Halen frontman says in the video (see it here.).
"Looks like we were too popular. There were too many folks, so we're going to try and find a place that has… should we go to the Hollywood Palladium maybe?"
The announced lineup for the special reunion featured guest vocalist Ralph Saenz (a.k.a. Michael Starr of Steel Panther) and did not include Roth but the report indicates that he was to make an unannounced appearance at the event.
hennemusic has further details about how events unfolded: Following an opening set by John 5 and The Creatures and a host of other players, according to California Rock News, the planned headline performance was cancelled by authorities.
Sheehan updated fans on Twitter as events unfolded throughout the evening, part of the club's free weekly "Ultimate Jam Night" series. "There's already a line to get into Lucky Strike tonight, so get there quickly if you want to get in!," posted the bassist early on. "Utter chaos at Lucky Strike live!!
"Well well well. The fire department shut down the whole show before we got on stage. And did we ever have a surprise for you! Such is life."
The surprise was an unannounced appearance by Roth, who was to join his former bandmates for the show. Saenz posted a photo of himself with the Van Halen frontman backstage, writing "Look who showed up for the reunion! Guess I'm singing back ups. Lol."

The November 14 stop on the Apollo X tour - featuring co-headliners The Devil Wears Prada and Motionless In White - saw Smith leap into the crowd at the city's Fox Theater. And the singer shared the first news of the injury on Twitter after the concert.
He says: "Never hurt myself at a show worse than I did tonight, but it was worth it for you Pomona! Love our fans!" He revealed the full extent of the damage a few days later in an Instagram update.
Smith says: "I had heard stories of injuries from stage diving, but you never think it will happen to you until it does. I have a broken rib, a fractured rib and broke transverse process which is one of the protruding bones near the bottom of my spine.
"Honestly the pain is pretty bad but knowing I could have hurt someone else like this sort of numbs that from a psychological standpoint. I think in the future I will just stick to going hard on stage not off it." Read morehere.
And he's suggested recording sessions could take place after the icons have wrapped up their final world tour, which includes a headline appearance at next year's Download festival.
Sabbath had originally intended to record a follow-up to 2013's chart-topping 13 to tie in with the farewell road trip, but frontman Ozzy Osbourne revealed last month that it wasn't going to happen.
Iommi tells Q: "I've got so many riffs. I wrote a whole load of stuff for another album and we met up in LA. But the others - well, Geezer - didn't particularly want to do another album. Then again, after you've just had a number one album, where do you go from there?"
He's previously reported that Sabbath could still use the five tracks recorded but not used for 13. "We may still put something out from that," he says. "We don't know yet." Read morehere.
The "Throne" showing follows up Bring Me the Horizon's success with That's the Spirit, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year. That was a career-high for the guys.
Bring Me the Horizon lead guitarist Lee Malia is a Gibson and Epiphone player. His Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom is heard all over That's the Spirit.
"I used my signature for everything; the whole CD," he told Gibson.com. "All the main sounds and everything is my Epiphone, and it sounds great, and that's why I use it." Read morehere.
They're now seeking €50 million in emergency aid to stop many venues from going under. And while France's culture minister Fleur Pellerin has previously set aside €4m to help the industry, the union insist it's not enough.
They say in a statement: "The implementation of this emergency fund is essential. Our 340 companies are composed mainly of small structures, having virtually no assets, and are extremely fragile.
"The mattress to absorb a crisis does not exist. That is why it's necessary to reassure the profession by increasing the amount and define the scope of this emergency fund. This amount will cover the additional resources deployed to secure facilities, but also to deal with the decline of ticket sales as observed on this first week." Read morehere.
Rand tells MusicRadar: "The reality is this. Corey has obligations in Slipknot. We are working on new material, but right now there's no timeline because we couldn't realistically support putting a record out."
The second of three EPs - on sale today in limited-edition vinyl - includes tributes to Iron Maiden, Slayer, the Rolling Stones, Motley Crue and Bad Brains.
Rand continues: "We live all over the US, really spread out - there's no city we all call home. So why not jam and do a few covers? Everyone needs to understand these covers are for ourselves. We want to get people into the bands that influenced us, almost take a step back to before Stone Sour." Read morehere.
Smith's third stint with the band - and his first appearance with them since 1998 - will commence with their North American tour in May next year. He says: "I've enjoyed working with Journey guitarist Neal Schon for many years, and playing on his solo albums, including The Calling and his latest release Vortex.
"Over the years he has mentioned that he'd like to have me tour with Journey again. The invitation has always been appreciated - but with my busy schedule always being booked at least a year in advance, the timing was never right.
"Some changes within the band have once again brought me the invitation to tour and this time we were able to plan in advance and work a Journey tour into my schedule." Read morehere.
Johnson says: "We have a couple of rituals. We definitely like to raise a toast before we leave the dressing room. We're pretty tight as a group of friends, so generally right before we go up the stairs to hit the stage we'll all hug each other and say, 'hey man, have a great show.'
"It's just a moment to express some gratitude that we're getting to do this, we've come this far and we're doing all right. It's good to be in a band with guys that you enjoy their company and being around as much as we are."

But the men behind the rocking robots now need a vocalist to complete the band - with the aim of recording a free-to-download 14-track album. They say: "We are building the lead vocalist to be the frontman of the band. It's got to perform like no other machine - it's got to have the moves, the looks and it's got to keep the show pumping.

She tells the BBC: "They were mostly shot at their homes or in their private spaces and I think somehow that comes across. By giving these guitarists a guitar to hold immediately dropped their defenses because they had something to do. It was about exploring that relationship between me and them and the thing that they love.
"I didn't have any fixed ideas - I just turned up at the place where we'd arranged to meet and then something evolved which is the way I like to do things." Read morehere.
