During Van Halen’s opening performance of “Panama” at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards – their first ever award show performance – right in the middle of the “reach down in between my legs” part, vocalist David Lee Roth slyly asked for some help from a two-time Grammy-nominated audience member.
“I’m going to reach down between my legs, and I’m going to get Nicki Minaj to help me ease my seat back, baby.”
Minaj, who was two years old when 1984 came out, did not take him up on the offer.
Van Halen will be hitting the road in July and doing a full US tour through October with Kenny Wayne Shepherd opening. The tour will supporting the release of Tokyo Dome Live In Concert, the band’s first live album with Roth.
