Happy Boxing Day! To celebrate, Van Halen announced a new tour today. David Lee Roth is back in the fold (and apparently twirling a baton) and will be taking lead vocals again. The announcement was made on their website, however there are no tour dates listed. It is probably the most exciting black and white video I’ve seen on a Boxing Day in recent memory (Warning: There’s a lot of David Lee Roth hip gyrations involved in this video).

According to their website, tickets go on sale January 10th. Keep checking back here at SeatGeek for tour dates. Until then, sign up below to find out about upcoming shows in your area, including Van Halen concerts.
