To promote the tour, the band will perform live on the outdoor stage of ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 30th, with excerpts from the performance to air on the show on the 30th and 31st. This will be Van Halen’s first national TV appearance since singer David Lee Roth rejoined the band in 2007.

This will be Van Halen’s first full-length tour after the band abruptly canceled a 2012 summer run in support of that year’s studio album, A Different Kind Of Truth.

Tickets for the trek go on sale beginning April 4th at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com, with special pre-sale information being announced locally. The opening act will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

March 31st will also see the release of Live: Tokyo Dome: In Concert, the band’s first official live album with Roth.
