VAN HALEN EXTENDS NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
LIVE NATION has just announced that Van Halen has added 18 concerts to its highly successful 2012 North American tour including a play at the Schottenstein Center on August 2 . Ky-mani Marley opens.
Van Halen recently premiered the video for She’s The Woman, the second single from A Different Kind Of Truth, the band’s first original studio album with singer David Lee Roth since the iconic, multi-platinum 1984.
Fans and music critics alike have praised the group’s recent shows:
“Van Halen is still one of the most limber bands in hard rock, with a higher center of gravity than most.” – New York Times
“Van Halen came out unannounced. No intro reel, nothing. They just started. Alex was pounding on the drums, Eddie started ripping, Dave said, “Let’s go!,” and it was on. Eddie fired into the opening riff of “Unchained,” and the place went nuts...the band was in fine form, especially Eddie, who looks happy and healthy, doing what he was put on earth to do. He is playing the best he’s played in years.” - GuitarWorld.com
Formed in Los Angeles in 1974, Van Halen changed the rock and roll landscape forever with the release of their self-titled, 1978 debut album. Displaying unparalleled stage presence, musicianship, and songwriting abilities, the band has sold more than 75 million albums sold worldwide and created a record of achievement that is hard to top. Van Halen joins an elite short list of two-time Diamond Award (10 million sales) honorees for their albums Van Halen and 1984. The band was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in March of 2007.
Opening act, Ky-mani Marley, son of legendary Bob Marley, has gained world-wide recognition and praise for his musical style, which transcends cultural and creative boundaries incorporating world music, hip hop, blues, rock, and reggae into one melodic entity.
Tickets GO ON SALE Monday, April 30 at 10AM at the Schottenstein Center Box Office, LiveNation.com, ticketmaster.com and 1-800-745-3000.
