Van Halen Announce 2015 North American Tour

Van Halen will tour North America this summer and fall in support of their upcoming concert album, Tokyo Dome Live in Concert. The tour will kick off in Seattle on July 5 and wrap up in Los Angeles on Oct. 2.

In between, the band will play more than three dozen shows across the continent, with stops in Chicago, Cleveland, Toronto, Dallas and in Phoenix on Sept. 28th at Ak-Chin Pavilion. You can see the full list of tour dates below.

David Lee Roth – who sang on the band’s most recent studio LP, 2012′s A Different Kind of Truth – will be on board for the tour, which will include the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band as the opening act on all dates.

In addition to the upcoming tour, the band will perform a concert on Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 30 and 31, the day Tokyo Dome Live in Concert comes out. It’s being touted as the band’s first U.S. TV appearance with Roth. (Van Halen are also scheduled to perform on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 2.)

The upcoming live set — the group’s first with Roth — includes 23 songs from the seven albums the band recorded with its original singer. The album documents a show recorded on June 21, 2013, in Tokyo.

On the same day that record is released, Van Halen are reissuing remastered versions of Van Halen and 1984, with new versions of Van Halen IIWomen and Children FirstFair Warning and Diver Down to follow in the spring.
