After 28 years, Van Halen returns with a legendary tour and their newest album fronted by David Lee Roth with ‘A Different Kind Of Truth’. The album released Feb. 7th can only be explained as fantastic! With the boys back and better than ever how can you not be excited!

During a Feb. 1st secret show at Henson Studios in Hollywood something happened that I never thought would happen again in my life. David Lee Roth fronting a concert with the rest of the legendary members of Van Halen. The show completely blew my mind as Eddie, Alex and bassist Wolfgang Van Halen sounded spectacular performing with Roth on older classics like “Jump” and newer gems like “Tattoo”. If what was seen in their hour plus surprise set was a view of things to come then their upcoming tour might go down as the greatest tour of all time!

Van Halen has easily provided rock hits that have transcended the test of time and it looks like there is no end in sight. As easily as people enjoy such classics as “Panama” and “Hot For Teacher” among their plethora of other hits their new album reinvents rock & roll and gives it a shot of adrenaline that is well needed in the genre. Songs like “The Trouble With Never”, “She’s The Woman” and “China Town” are master works from a band that has been gone for way too long but thankfully are back and making it worth it a million times over!

So HollywoodLifers, Van Halen has redefined how you listen to music, how you appreciate live music and it looks like history has repeated itself! Don’t be left out and join the ride!

Please visit for all available tour tickets! Plus buy the new album, you will not be disappointed!
