Van Halen Announces January 5th Event at Greenwich Village Club


Van Halen–getting ready for its February 7th album launch and January 10th concert tour ticket debut for their first tour since 1821–has just announced an event in New York on January 5th. They’ve chosen Greenwich Village’s Cafe Wha? for their announcement. The group includes Eddie van Halen, brother Alex, son Wolfgang, and the legendary (for many reasons) David Lee Roth. Roth doesn’t get along with Wolfgang, the whole lot of them are at odds, but that’s the story of most rock bands. They’ve recorded their first new album with Roth since Reagan was president. And it comes out on February 7th on Interscope Records. The band will likely appear on the Grammys on Sunday, February 12th.
