Van Halen announce summer tour, playing Jimmy Kimmel

Posted by on March 24, 2015

vh2015tourpicVan Halen kind of let the cat out of the bag that they’d be touring when it was announced that they’d be playing The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 2. It turns out we won’t have to wait that long to see the band play, as they’ll be playing a concert for Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 30th on Hollywood Boulevard.  The show will be broadcast on Kimmel over the course of two nights, March 30 and 31. This will mark the first time the band have ever played on U.S. television with original singer David Lee Roth.

And then there’s the tour, which will start on July 5th and continue through October 5th. Ostensibly in support of their first live album with Roth, Tokyo Dome Live In Concert, the tour will feature Kenny Wayne Shepherd opening. The double live album, as well as remastered versions of Van Halen and 1984, will be released on March 31. The other four Roth-era albums will be released later this Spring. Here’s where you’ll be able to catch the tour, assuming that they follow through with the whole thing:
