VIDEO: Van Halen, David Lee Roth Announce 2012 Reunion Tour
After rampant speculation, the legendary rockers of Van Halen announced they will take it on the road in 2012 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of their band. And that's not all. Original frontman David Lee Roth (pictured) will reunite with the band for the tour.
Also reportedly returning to the stage will be guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen, and bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, reports CBS. Mike Anthony, the band's original bassist, later took up with second Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar in the band Chickenfoot, and is not expected to join the tour.
No information has yet been released about dates and locations. To announce the upcoming tour, the band released a video on Van-Halen.com, featuring ticker tape at the bottom declaring that tickets will go on sale on January 10.
The band also recently signed a deal with Interscope Records to put out a full-length studio record that will also feature Roth, according to CBSNews. It will be the first Van Halen album since 1998's Van Halen III, and the first one with Roth since 1984.
