Former VAN HALEN star David Lee Roth has stepped in to replace sick Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler at this year's (04) BOSTON POPS JULY THE FOURTH Celebration in Massachusetts.

Tyler was forced to pull the plug on the orchestral collaboration when he was struck down with laryngitis while he was touring with rockers CHEAP TRICK.

Lee Roth will perform his hits JUMP and CALIFORNIA GIRLS with the world famous orchestra.

The concert will be broadcast across America on Sunday night (04JUL04).
