The 2007 tour has drawn over 600,000 fans thus far with sold out shows in cities across America, winning the praise of fans and critics alike. “From the first power chords of “You Really Got Me,” the band hit a hard groove that didn’t let up for the next two hours,” said the New York Daily News. The Hollywood Reporter said: “For one perfect night … Van Halen was nothing short of spectacular.”

Formed in Los Angeles in 1974, the band has always been known for their electrifying live shows. From the moment they released their self-titled 1978 debut album, Van Halen shook the foundations of rock, thanks largely to Roth’s peerless showmanship, Eddie Van Halen’s revolutionary guitar virtuosity and their songwriting abilities. Their music has changed rock and roll forever and will continue to.
