After more than two decades apart, the rock group Van Halen and its original lead singer, David Lee Roth, are reuniting.
The band announced Friday that Roth, 52, will front the heavy metal quartet on a 40-show summer tour. This will be the first time Roth has performed with the band since 1984, after which Sammy Hagar sang lead. (Roth briefly rejoined the band in 1996, but didn’t perform with them at the time.)
“I am very excited to get back to the core of what made Van Halen,” lead guitarist Eddie Van Halen, 52, said in a statement.
