Update: Van Halen Tour To Bow In June
Van Halen has confirmed the routing for its summer tour, as well as the return of vocalist Sammy Hagar after an eight-year absence. The group’s official Web site features the greeting “Eddie, Alex, Mike & Sammy Hit the Road” as well as a new photo of the foursome. The trek will play North American arenas beginning June 11 in Greensboro, N.C., and wrapping Aug. 19 in Los Angeles.
Van Halen — guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen and bassist Michael Anthony — has not toured since 1998 and is currently without a record deal after splitting from longtime home Warner Bros. in 2002. However, June will see the release of a greatest hits album via Warner Strategic Marketing, featuring at least one new Hagar-voiced track, “It’s About Time.”
A tour spokesperson says the upcoming shows will offer such David Lee Roth-era classics as “Panama” and “Jump” plus Hagar-associated tracks like “Why Can’t This Be Love,” “Right Now,” “Dreams,” “Top of the World” and “Best of Both Worlds.”
Tickets for some shows begin going on sale April 3 via Ticketmaster. Van Halen’s site will also be offering premium ticket packages for some shows, with details to be announced Tuesday (March 30).
