Fans of the classic rock band Van Halen will be happy to learn that Van Halen will be making their first live television appearances since 2006, when David Lee Roth rejoined the band, according to Rolling Stone.
Van Halen will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for two nights, March 30 and March 31, for their first appearance. The show will be taped on Hollywood Boulevard, and Van Halen is scheduled to perform a selection of their greatest hits and the appearance will air just as a new live album, Tokyo Dome Live in Concert, hits the stores. Tokyo Dome Live in Concert is notable for being the first live Van Halen album to feature singer David Lee Roth. The 23-song album was recorded in Japan in 2013.
Van Halen has posted the Tokyo Dome versions of "Running With The Devil" and "Panama" online.
Following their Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearances, Van Halen will again appear on television with Ellen on April 2.
In addition to Tokyo Dome Live In Concert, Van Halen is also reissuing digitally remastered versions of their Van Halen and 1984 albums, also to be released on the last day of March. The band will also be releasing remastered versions of the entire David Lee Roth/Van Halen catalog from the 80s later in the spring.
Building on their television appearances, Van Halen will also promote their new live album by touring the U.S. with an opening act, the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. This Van Halen tour will feature David Lee Roth for the first time since their 2012 tour, which was cancelled due to in-band fighting and Eddie Van Halen's digestive illnesses.
This tour will host a Van Halen line-up of David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, and Eddie's 24-year-old son, Wolfgang.
