Van Halen Kick off Summer Tour with Hollywood Boulevard Show, March 30

Written by


In celebration of their 2015 Summer/Fall North American Tour, Van Halen will perform a special concert for Jimmy Kimmel Live March 30 on Hollywood Boulevard. It will be followed by an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 2.


Featuring some of the band's essential rock and roll classics, the Hollywood Boulevard concert will be broadcast over two nights, March 30 and March 31, on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It will mark 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 Amphitheater, with concerts scheduled through October 2 in Los Angeles, California at the legendary Hollywood Bowl. Special guest Kenny Wayne Shepherd will support all dates along the tour.


Tickets for the Live Nation-promoted tour go on sale beginning April 4 at and 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 Concert, the first-ever live album to feature original singer David Lee Roth. Recorded on June 21, 2013 in Tokyo, Japan, Tokyo Dome Live 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, 2015.


Fans who pre-order Tokyo Dome Live 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, CA. These albums are being released beginning March 31 with pre-orders available now through Amazon and iTunes now.
