In celebration of a 2015 summer/fall North American Tour, Van Halen will perform a special concert for Jimmy Kimmel Live March 30 (tonight) on Hollywood Boulevard.
Featuring some of the band’s essential rock and roll classics, the concert will be broadcast on the late-night talk show over two nights, March 30-31, marking Van Halen’s first U.S. television performance with original lead singer David Lee Roth.
This concert will feature a hit-heavy set of tracks featured on Tokyo Dome Live in Concert, the first-ever live album to feature Roth. Recorded on June, 21, 2013 in Tokyo, Japan, the new release features 23 tracks spanning each of the band’s seven albums with Roth. Tokyo Dome Live in Concert will be available on March 31 as a digital download, a double CD package and a four-LP set on 180-gram vinyl.
In addition, Van Halen is also releasing 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 in Hollywood.
Van Halen’s upcoming North American tour begins July 5 in Seattle, Wash., at the White River Amphitheatre, and ends Oct. 2 in Los Angeles at the legendary Hollywood Bowl. The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band will support all dates, and tickets will go on sale April 4 with special pre-sale information being announced locally.
Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m./10:35 p.m. CDT on ABC.
