Unless you were awake at 12:30 am PST or a part of their mailing list, then you'd be surprised to know that rock icons Van Halen announced they are going on tour in 2012, with tickets on-sale January 10. What happens from here no one knows since there aren't any dates or cities listed, only three videos (or mini-trailers in this case), which were the rumored videos the band made at The Roxy on Sunset when it was first announced they were signing with Interscope Records.
For fans of the band's early material, have no fear, David Lee Roth will
be singing, however, bassist/backing vocalist Michael Anthony is still
not in the mix. This announcement comes on the heels of the band
announcing that it is planning to release a new album in 2012, which in
an interview with Rolling Stone,
former VH singer Sammy Hagar scoffed at as being the remains of
sessions that were recorded years ago. Either way, for Van Halen fans,
it is shaping up to be an eventful 2012. Here are the three videos that
were posted on Van-Halen.com below.
