It’s official!!!!!!!! This is an awesome day!!

Sammy Hagar returns to Van Halen
After months of speculation, Van Halen are hitting the road for the first time in six years with a familiar face back in the lineup — Sammy Hagar.
Hagar, who split with the group in 1996, is back in the fold after he and the other members of Van Halen met last November and put aside their past differences.
Since then, the reunited quartet have recorded several songs which will appear on a forthcoming best-of album, sources told
The band hasn’t toured since 1998 when they hit the road behind “Van Halen 3” with former Extreme vocalist Gary Cherone. The Cherone experiment ended up being a commercial failure and he left the band shortly after work began on a follow-up release in 1999.
The upcoming summer tour will kick off in Hershey, PA on June 13, and other confirmed stops include Detroit, East Rutherford, Greensboro, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, St. Louis, St. Paul, Wilkes-Barre and Worcester.
There is no word on Canadian dates as yet, but more shows are expected to be added shortly.
