Van Halen Announce 2015 North American Tour Dates

March 24, 2015

Van Halen have announced their North America summer/fall 2015 tour dates. The trek will begin on July 5th in Seattle, Washington at the White River Amphitheatre, with concerts scheduled through October 2nd 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 4th at and with special pre-sale information being announced locally.

In celebration of the 2015 North American tour, Van Halen will perform a special concert for Jimmy Kimmel Live March 30th on Hollywood Boulevard. Featuring some of the band’s essential rock and roll classics, the concert will be broadcast over two nights, March 30th and March 31th, 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.

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 David Lee Roth. Recorded on June 21st, 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 on March 31st. Fans who pre-order ‘Tokyo Dome Live In Concert’ 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 31st 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.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1974, Van Halen changed the rock and roll landscape forever with the release of their self-titled, 1978 debut album and subsequently produced a repertoire of hits that remain some of the strongest and most influential rock songs ever written that fans will admire for decades to come. With more than 75 million albums sold worldwide, and more No. 1 hits on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart than any other artist, the band’s record of achievement is hard to top. The eponymous debut album and ‘1984’ were both certified Diamond, for U.S. sales in excess of 10 million, placing them on an elite short list of double RIAA-certified Diamond Award honorees. Van Halen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
