Did Santa put a little money in your stocking for Christmas? If so, you might want to swap that green for some Van Halen tickets. The band is going on tour in 2012 and tickets go on sale January 10.
The tour announcement trailer was shot last month at the Roxy in Hollywood. In the clip below, the band is apparently performing a new song... but all we get are snippets of "the classics." Van Halen will (apparently) release a new record in February to coincide with the tour. On the announcement art (left), the date is listed as 2-7-12. That's either the first date of the tour, or the album release. Maybe both.
So the important question: will you go to this tour? I'm on the fence. I saw the Van Halen reunion tour twice last go' round - and those tickets were not cheap. I'll need some more information before I plunk down a ton of cash again. That said, I'm excited for the new album. I'm just hoping it's an album of all new material - and not a couple of new songs with greatest hits mixed in.
