Van Halen Announce 2012 Tour

Van Halen will return to the stage and tour in 2012. Taking to their social media accounts, the band released a trailer of new rehearsal footage set to their 1984 cuts “Jump” and “Panama” that announced an upcoming tour of what is sure to be a night David Lee Roth-era rock classics.

No dates have been announced yet, but the band has promised an album is forthcoming with original frontman David Lee Roth since their 2007 road trek. There hasn’t been new music released from Roth and Van Halen in over 15 years. Their last recorded collaboration was on two tracks for the band’s 1996 “Best Of” collection CD.

Following the band’s Van Hagar lineup meltdown, some may argue that this second tour with Diamond Dave will still not be the full fledged reunion that many vocal VH fans would like to see come to pass. Eddie’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen, replaced original bass player Michael Anthony on the 2007 tour and has permanently filled that spot in the band. Anthony has since re-joined former VH singer Sammy Hagar in the supergroup Chickenfoot, who have already released two successful albums during Van Halen’s hiatus.

The first set of tickets go on sale January 10th. More details to follow.
