The Van Halen tour 2015 is set to kick off on July 5 at the White River Amphitheatre in Seattle, Washington, and continue throughout the continent with notable stops Salt Lake City, Kansas City, St. Louis and more.
The month of August will see the band visiting Canada as well, taking three Canadian stops earlier during the month. After that, it’s back to the states for the group, with a string of concert stops across the East Coast.
Finally, the trek will be rounded up on the West Coast in early September. But prior to the trek’s last stop in Hollywood, California on October 2, the lads will visit the southern parts, rocking out in Florida, Texas, Arizona, and ultimately the sunny state of CA. The boys are still hot for rock ‘n’ roll, and your presence at the show is requested.

The stellar journey of rock icons known as Van Halen began way back in the year of 1972 in the sunny state of California. The band was founded by brothers Eddie Van Halen and Alex Van Halen on guitar and drums, respectively.
Following the early days, the group was joined by singer David Lee Roth and bassist Michael Anthony and it was at that point that the boys really kicked out the jams. After crafting their trade for a few years, the group unleashed their self-titled debut album in 1978.
Containing such hit singles as “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love,” “Runnin’ With the Devil” and The Kinks cover “You Really Got Me, ” the record succeeded in captivating the attention of rock crowds around the world. But it was a short instrumental called “Eruption” that set a new standard as far as how guitar can be perceived.
With lass than two minutes, Eddie Van Halen essentially gave birth to several guitar techniques that are crucial in perceiving modern guitarists today, or at least brought them to the limelight of the rock world. Despite debuting at No. 19 on the US Billboard 200 chart, the record ultimately sold more than 10 million copies in the States alone, earning a shiny Diamond certificate.
And so with just one album, Van Halen became superstars. They released a follow-up the next year, and kept a fast recording pace throughout the years, but without a true hit to match the almighty debut. That changed in 1984, with a release of the band’s sixth studio album, appropriately titled “1984.”
Just a year after Van Halen were confirmed by The Guinness World Records as the “highest paid band ever,” they unleashed this mammoth of an album. Led by worldwide mega hit “Jump,” and such all-time favorites as “Panama” and “Hot for Teacher,” the album went on to sell over 10 million units in the US alone. As for “Jump,” the tune spent five consecutive weeks atop the singles chart and sold three million copies on its own.
But this is where the golden Roth era was bound to end. Due to major personal clashes, the singer left the band in the midst of the 1984 tour, ultimately kicking off a solo career.
The band then brought in Sammy Hagar of Montrose, and as early as 1986, they had their very first No. 1 US album – “5150.” Led by killer tunes “Why Can’t This Be Love” and “Dreams,” the release earned a 6x platinum certificate.
The Hagar era ended in 1996 and Extreme vocalist was briefly brought in for the release of “Van Halen III,” the band’s least successful album to date. The band went on a hiatus in 1999, but was quick to return, first with Hagar and then with Roth.
At the moment, the band is still rocking hard in the following lineup – Eddie Van Halen on guitar, David Lee Roth on Vocals, Eddie’s son Wolfgang Van Halen on bass, and Alex Van Halen behind the battery kit. They still remain as one of the world’s hottest acts, and we highly recommend checking out their magic live in concert.
