Van Halen is now promoting their "Tokyo Dome Live in Concert", a live album they recorded during their "A Different Kind of Truth Tour". It's their first live set to feature their original lead singer David Lee Roth who rejoined the group in 2006 after a 20-year split. Scheduled to come out on March 31, the disc includes a number of Van Halen songs from the Roth era.
Additionally, they plan to remaster their classic albums and release them later this year. They'll start with reissues of "Van Halen" and "1984" that are also due out on March 31.
To celebrate the albums' arrival, the rockers will visit "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on March 30 and 31 and shut down the Hollywood Boulevard for a two-night special performance. Interestingly, this will be Roth's first U.S. TV appearance as a part of Van Halen.
