You have all been asking, and now LiveNation is telling. Tickets for Van Halen's June 24th gig at Toyota Center go on sale next Saturday, January 289, and 10 a.m. Tickets will be available online at LiveNation.com or toyotacentertix.com. You know the ticketing drill.
A few weeks back LiveNation told Rocks Off that it will not in fact be Kool & The Gang opening for the Halen's and Roth in June. Then five minutes ago I get a press release saying it really is going to be Kool and the boys playing before VH. I hope this sticks.
The band's first album since 1998, A Different Kind of Truth, hits on February 7, and the first single "Tattoo" debuted a few weeks ago. And of course, Sammy Hagar hates it, telling a British rock blog, "It should be better than it is but hey, it is what it is and at least they got together and at least they came out with something."
