Van Halen Tour Dates 2012

It’s official, Van Halen and David Lee Roth will begin their 45-stop 2012 tour in support of their new album, A Different Kind of Truth,   on February 18th in Louisville, Kentucky. This the first album the duo have recorded since 1984, though they’ve toured together in 2007 and 2008. With Roth and Hagar reunited, the final missing link, bassist Michael Anthony, isn’t expected to return thanks to the prowess of his replacement , Wolfgang Van Halen, better known as Halen’s son. According to the press release, the group will play several new songs accompanied by favorable tunes like “Eruption,” “Running With the Devil,” “Hot for Teacher,” and more.

And if the combo of Halen and Roth didn’t get you hot and bothered enough, Kool & the Gang will be opening for the band on select dates. Now let’s get a celebration for partying like it’s the 80s all over again!
