VAN HALEN Announces North American Tour, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' Appearance

In celebration of a 2015 summer/fall North American tour, VAN HALEN will perform a special concert for "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on March 30 on Hollywood Boulevard. Featuring some of the band’s essential rock and roll classics, the concert will be broadcast over two nights, March 30 and March 31, on the late night talk show and marks VAN HALEN's first U.S. television performance with original lead singer David Lee Roth. "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. / 10:35 p.m. Central time on ABC.

VAN HALEN is touring North America beginning July 5 in Seattle, Washington at the White River Amphitheatre, with concerts scheduled through October 2 in Los Angeles, California at the legendary Hollywood Bowl. Special guest KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD BAND will support all dates along the tour. Tickets for the Live Nation-promoted tour go on sale beginning April 4 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com, with special pre-sale information being announced locally. A complete list of tour dates can be found below.

The special Hollywood Boulevard concert will be a hit-heavy set of songs featured on "Tokyo Dome Live In Concert", the first-ever live album to feature original singer David Lee Roth. Recorded on June 21, 2013 in Tokyo, Japan, "Tokyo Dome Live In Concert" includes 23 songs spanning all seven of the band’s albums with Roth. It is being released as a double CD, four-LP set on 180-gram vinyl and digitally beginning March 31. Fans who pre-order "Tokyo Dome Live In Concert" before its March 31 release date through Amazon and digitally at iTunes will instantly receive downloads of "Panama", "Runnin' With The Devil", "Jump" and "Hot For Teacher".

Also being released beginning March 31 are remastered versions of "Van Halen" and "1984", with remastered versions of "Diver Down", "Women And Children First", "Van Halen II" and "Fair Warning" due out later this spring. Each album has been cut straight from the quarter-inch tapes for CD, 180-gram vinyl and for the digital version by mastering engineer Chris Bellman, who remastered the original albums for Bernie Grundman Studios, Hollywood, California. These albums are being released beginning March 31, with pre-orders available now through Amazon and iTunes now.
