Van Halen to tour North America

Van Halen will commence a 39-date North American tour in July, the band have confirmed.

In addition to the run of shows, they’ll play Hollywood Boulevard on March 30 and the show will be broadcast on the Jimmy Kimmel Live TV show.

The band release Tokyo Dome Live In Concert later this month – their first-ever live album with original frontman David Lee Roth – which they’ve said will be released without any vocal retouching. They’ve released a stream of Hot For Teacher, taken from the collection.

Van Halen could record a follow-up to 2012’s A Different Kind Of Truth, but guitarist Eddie Van Halen insists it will only happen if they worked out timing issues with Roth.
