Hey it’s Scott Alan,
Van Halen has announced the dates and cities for a summer/fall North American tour that will kick off on July 5th at the White River Amphitheatre near Tacoma, finishing up October 2nd in Los Angeles. To promote the tour, the band will perform live on the outdoor stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live March 30th, with excerpts from the performance to air on the 30th and 31st. Van Halen is also scheduled to appear on the April 2nd edition of The Ellen Degeneres Show.
This will be Van Halen’s first full-length tour after the band abruptly canceled a 2012 summer run in support of that year’s studio album, A Different Kind Of Truth.
Tickets go on sale beginning April 4th. The opening act will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
March 31st will also see the release of Live: Tokyo Dome: In Concert, the band’s first official live album with Roth.
Summer 2015 is shaping up to be a monster for rock shows! Full concert listings at Rock101.com
