    Van Halen to Perform at New York's Cafe Wha? This Thursday (Confirmed Pg. 5)

    Journalists across New York have been invited to a Van Halen concert at the Cafe Wha? in Greenwich Village this Thursday. Though nothing is official, word is the band are going to perform a 45-minute set. The group hasn't played in public since the end of their 2007/'08 reunion tour with original frontman David Lee Roth, though they have been rehearsing for their upcoming world tour at the Roxy in Los Angeles for the past few months. A new album is in the works, and a new image released by the band has the date 2.7.12 on it. A new video and single is expected to hit sometime this month. The tour goes on sale January 10th.

    The 250-seat Cafe Wha? may seem like an unlikely place for Van Halen to launch their new tour, but the club has an important family connection to David Lee Roth. His uncle Manny Roth owned and operated the venue, providing a stage to then-up-and-coming acts such as Jimi Hendrix, Bill Cosby, Bob Dylan, Richard Pryor and many others.

    While the Van Halen camp has been extremely quiet about the band's plans for 2012, they recently put up a giant billboard in Times Square and teaser footage showing the band rehearsing at the Roxy. They have also given the fansite VHLINKS two exclusive videos of the band reminiscing about Eddie Van Halen's old Volvo and judging wet T-shirt contests back in the Seventies. The site also says that a "trusted source" tells them the band has been "busy booking rehearsal space and hotel rooms for the band and their crew for [this] week in NYC."

    THAT would be very, very surprising, in a good way. In a small club, they have the opportunity to really show if they are truly back or if it's 2007/08 again.

    they must be pretty confident....hard to fake it in such a small venue.....if true, this is a very very good sign

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    To see VH in this party of the city would just be...ungodly. I love that neighborhood. That'd be sweet if they did a bunch of intimate club shows in NYC--Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall, etc.

    GREAT NEWS!
    I remember going to Cafe Wha? last time I was in NY, my wife didn't understand my happinness being there until I explained her the Roth connection.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.
