Van Halen plugs NY gig before world tour begins

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Consider it a tune-up before the big show.

As Van Halen prepares for a world tour (with dates for concerts going on sale Jan. 10), the band has revealed that it will play a concert this Thursday at Café Wha? in New York’s Greenwich Village. That has to be the smallest venue the band has played in decades, a real treat for VH fans. It’s also the first band’s first live appearance since the end of a 2007-08 tour.

This version of Van Halen includes siblings Eddie and Alex, with lead singer David Lee Roth and Eddie’s son, Wolfgang, on bass guitar. Longtime fans hoping for original bassist Michael Anthony to reunite with his estranged band members will be disappointed to learn that they still have not repaired the broken bonds that separated them years ago.

But there are bigger things on the horizon for VH. In addition to the tour, they have a new album due out on Feb. 7. And HitFix speculates that Halen could play at the Grammy Awards, given the ceremony’s proximity to the album release date.

We’ll see.
