Watch Van Halen perform “Jump” and “Dance The Night Away” on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’!
Roth: “This is the most auspicious way of starting the tour. We’ve never played American television before, and it was our idea that you couldn’t possibly pick a better audience than this here. This is our Ed Sullivan Show! This is James Brown on The Ed Sullivan Show. This is the Beatles. This is a really big showcase for us.”
The band had a blast on the Ellen set, which was taped yesterday. Eric Stonestreet from Modern Family dropped by the green room to say hello. There was a big bowl of M&Ms backstage with all the brown ones removed. Tune in today to watch!
Van Halen is live album, “Tokyo Dome Live in Concert,” was released yesterday, and tickets for their Summer/Fall 2015 Tour go on sale this Saturday!
