The Van Halen press release!


Published January 6, 2012 | By Peter Hodgson




PRESS RELEASE

Van Halen, Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductees and one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time, announced their return to the live stage with an extraordinary 2012 North American tour. The announcement was made during a once-in-a-lifetime performance, at the intimate Café Wha? in New York City on January 5th. Known around the world for some of the most iconic live performances in music history, the legendary rock band will begin their tour on February 18th. Kool & The Gang will join Van Halen for select tour dates.

Tickets for the Live Nation-promoted tour go on sale beginning January 14th at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

In addition, Van Halen confirmed their new album, A Different Kind Of Truth, will be released in the U.S. by Interscope Records on February 7th. The first single from the album, Tattoo, and its accompanying video will be debut simultaneously on Tuesday, January 10th, with album pre-orders starting that day. A Different Kind Of Truth is Van Halen’s first original studio album with singer David Lee Roth since the band’s classic multi-platinum album 1984.

Fans can expect Van Halen to perform selections from A Different Kind Of Truth, alongside songs from their arsenal of epic hits that include: Eruption, Running with the Devil, Jamie’s Cryin’, You Really Got Me, Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love, Everybody Wants Some, Unchained, And The Cradle Will Rock, Beautiful Girls, Mean Street, Somebody Get Me A Doctor, Jump, Panama, Hot For Teacher, I’ll Wait, and more from their classic albums Van Halen, Van Halen II, Women and Children First, Fair Warning, Diver Down and 1984.

Van Halen – who the Los Angeles Times recently called “a force of nature” and “one of the flat-out greatest rock bands on the planet” – was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in March of 2007.

VIP Packages will also be available through VIP Nation, including premium seats, exclusive merchandise and more. For more information please visit: www.VIPNation.com .

So watch the video of Diamond Dave signing autographs. Notice how there is no footage of any other member signing. Records, guitars, and guitar plates coming out of the woodwork. Man is he getting raked over hard in NYC. A slew of kids probably getting 15 bones an autograph. Videos aren't too bad but vocals are washed.
