If David Lee Roth had his way, Van Halen would tour more often, especially internationally. Speaking ahead of their show in Australia next month, he says, "The Van Halens, I think, are just now starting to value that which once was, which was the capacity to experience other worlds, other communities, particularly when you are a stranger in a stranger land. I find that so refreshing. And you gotta be prepared to be a beginner, you gotta be prepared to not have your cheeseburger and fries, you gotta be prepared for a lot. In the days back when, we would come off the road after a full year out, I would walk straight though to the international terminal and head for an adventure. I have earned the stars and scars..."
Following Australia, Van Halen then has a few dates in Japan in June.
