Since sharing their intent to get back on the road with frontman David Lee Roth in 2012, Van Halen is giving fans some stops to mark on their calendars.
The tour will launch in Louisville, Kentucky on February 18 at the KFC Yum! Center, and will wrap up in New Orleans on June 26. Tickets will go on sale for the first 13 or so stops starting January 14. (Pre-sale starts January 10.)
And if you can't make it to a concert, Van Halen also has a new album coming out.
Called "A Different Kind of Truth," that record will be released on February 7. As we mentioned before, this album will be Van Halen's first studio offering with Roth since their hit "1984," which was released on the last day of 1983.
The set list for the concerts will include some of Van Halen's hits like "Jump"; "“Panama" and "Hot For Teacher," as well as some tracks from the new album.
Following Van Halen's opening stop in Kentucky, the band will play Detroit on February 20; Chicago on February 24; New York on February 28 and March 1; Uncasville, Connecticut on March 3; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on March 5.
