From the Las Vegas Review Journal:
Roth set to rejoin Van Halen for tour
A Van Halen reunion tour, with David Lee Roth back in the fold after 22 years, is in the works, with a Las Vegas launch looking good.
A late April date at the Palms’ new venue, The Pearl, is “99 percent” likely, a source said.
A 40-date tour is being discussed.It would be the latest coup for Palms owner George Maloof, who will open the 2,500-seat venue with a lineup that includes Tool,Evanescence, Gwen Stefani and possibly Van Halen, all in the first month.
Roth fronted the band from 1974 to 1985 before going solo. He was close to rejoining about 11 years ago, but a blowup caused another rift.
Van Halen’s last tour, in 2004, grossed about $40 million, with Sammy Hagar as the lead.
