VAN HALEN – David Lee Roth Says The Band Will Perform “50-60 Shows Outside Of The US” Later This Year

VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth appeared on the Opie & Anthony show this morning and revealed that the band is going to be playing Europe in 2013.

“Probably 50-60 shows outside of the United States starting at the end of this year and then come back around the US,” says Diamond Dave. “Van Halen is kind of pure and uncut kind of music; it’s leads, bass, drums and howling at the moon. It’s a little bit like getting drunk on shots of really good Kentucky bourbon. You’ll have a great night but you won’t want to see us again in three years.”

Check out an excerpt from the interview below:

Video: IRON MAIDEN Drummer Reunites With PAT TRAVERS At ‘Classic Rock & Roll Party’ In Florida

IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain performed with his former PAT TRAVERS BAND bandmate Pat Travers at The Classic Rock & Roll Party on Saturday, March 2 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Proceeds from the event will go to HomeSafe, a non-profit organization helping society’s most vulnerable residents — victims of severe child abuse and domestic violence in Palm Beach County and South Florida.

Founded in 1979, HomeSafe provides comprehensive programs preventing new cases of family violence, protecting victims of child abuse and domestic violence, and preparing children and families for safer, more productive lives.

Through results-based programs and highly dedicated and qualified staff, HomeSafe has grown into a leading provider of prevention and intervention services. Each year, HomeSafe serves over fifteen thousand infants, children and families.

Learn more about HomeSafe at HelpHomeSafe.org.

Speaking to the Broward Palm Beach New Times, McBrain stated about how he got involved with HomeSafe: “I got involved with HomeSafe about eight years ago. Tico Torres (of BON JOVI) was actually kind of host of it, but I met him through a lady who kind of set me with the golf tournament for Tico, and then I went to the event and I just fell in love with everybody who worked there at that time. There was such a positive vibe towards the way that people were working for the charity, and then Clarence (Clemons) came on board and we hit it off, and he took me down to meet the children at the West Palm Beach home, and it tugged the old strings of the heart, so, I’ve supported it ever since. This year, obviously we lost Clarence a couple of years back, they asked me to be the host and I MC’d the event last year and I’m very honored and proud to be a part of the big event this [year]! It’s been tough, it’s been hard work, but it’s culminated in a great golf tournament and a fantastic night.”

McBrain recorded two albums with PAT TRAVERS BAND: “Makin’ Magic” (1976) and “Putting It Straight” (1977).
