‘For more than two hours, the gods delivered.’ – Rolling Stone

In the midst of one of the most highly anticipated and successful tours of the year, Van Halen announced today that they will extend their historic tour into 2008. Eddie Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Alex Van Halen, and Wolfgang Van Halen, together for the first time in 22 years, will kick off the New Year by extending their tour into 28 additional cities, kicking off with a January 22nd performance at Oklahoma City’s Ford Center and running through April 7th at Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s Bradley Center.

The 2007 tour has drawn over 600,000 fans thus far with sold out shows in cities across America, winning the praise of fans and critics alike. “From the first power chords of “You Really Got Me,” the band hit a hard groove that didn’t let up for the next two hours,” said the New York Daily News. The Hollywood Reporter said: “For one perfect night … Van Halen was nothing short of spectacular.”

Tickets for the San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Omaha, New Orleans, Charlottesville, Hershey, and Atlantic City dates will go on sale Saturday December 1st and East Rutherford and New York will go on sale Monday December 3rd and are available at http://www.livenation.com/ and Ticketmaster. On sale dates for the rest of the tour will be announced shortly and additional 2008 dates are also expected to be announced soon.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1974, the band has always been known for their electrifying live shows. From the moment they released their self-titled 1978 debut album, Van Halen shook the foundations of rock, thanks largely to Roth’s peerless showmanship, Eddie Van Halen’s revolutionary guitar virtuosity and their songwriting abilities. Their music has changed rock and roll forever and will continue to.
