Van Halen Is Touring Again With David Lee Roth

CULVER CITY, CA - MARCH 11:  Musician David Lee Roth poses in the front row at the Maggie Barry for Xubaz Fall 2008 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week held at Smashbox Studios on March 11, 2008 in Culver City, California.  (Photo by Jesse Grant/Getty Images for IMG)

The band Van Halen has a long history of guitar solos, radio hits, and teases of reunions that end up going nowhere. But this weekend the band announced more-concrete-than-usual plans for a second reunion tour with their original singer, David Lee Roth (though they gave no release date or details about the alleged new album the group has been working on for Interscope). Tickets go on sale January 10, according to their website, and you know they're good for it: After all, they finished their whole 2007 reunion tour, even making up the dates they had to postpone when Eddie Van Halen ducked into rehab for a refresher course. So get ready to see Dave high kick and wave microphone stands phallically like only a 57-year-old can!*
