VAN HALEN: NYC Concert Setlist Revealed; First Tour Dates Announced

VAN HALEN played its first live show since 2008 earlier tonight (Thursday, January 5) at the tiny Cafe Wha? nightclub in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village.

The CD’s first single and video, “Tatoo”, will arrive on January 10.

An image featuring a train and the VAN HALEN logo, along with the February 7 date, was posted online and then flashed on the Times Square electronic billboard on New Year’s Eve (December 31). There is speculation that the image could be the album’s cover art.

The set will be the group’s first all-new collection since “Van Halen 3” was issued 13 years ago, and its first with Roth since 1984.
