VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth sat down with Alyona of HuffPost Live to discuss his video podcast program “The Roth Show” and VAN HALEN‘s 35th anniversary. You can watch the chat below.
VAN HALEN will headline Australia’s Stone Music Festival at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on April 20. The band’s only show Down Under, it will be VAN HALEN‘s first Australian appearance since 1998, and first with Roth.
The Stone Music Festival was inspired by a cult ’70s biker film named “Stone”. Released in 1974, the exploitation movie starred Ken Shorter as an undercover cop assigned to discover who is murdering members of an outlaw biker gang named the Gravediggers.
VAN HALEN will close out the annual Rock USA festival, scheduled for July 17 through July 20 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Roth recently gave an interview to Rolling Stone in which he expressed his desire to work on fresh material with Eddie Van Halen and tour outside the U.S., saying, “We have an audience and we have a potential future in many, many places . . . I don’t know where the VAN HALEN future lies aside from the States.”
The band has been touring in support of its February 2012 release, “A Different Kind Of Truth”, which was its first album with Roth in 28 years.
