Eddie Van Halen excited of “Pure Magic” reunion
Moldova.ORG -- 'Playing these timeless hits only works with Dave,' Eddie Van Halen tells MTV News in exclusive statement. They must be breaking out the ice skates in hell.
Van Halen's long-rumored reunion tour with original singer David Lee Roth came one step closer as ink dried on the final contracts Friday (February 2). The tour will feature Roth alongside founding members Eddie and Alex Van Halen, with Eddie's son, Wolfgang Van Halen (who recently replaced Michael Anthony), on bass.
Although Roth teamed up with Van Halen in 1996 to record two songs for a greatest-hits collection, the tour will mark his first time performing live with the band since 1984, the year of their landmark album 1984, which featured "Jump," "Panama" and "Hot for Teacher."
"Playing these timeless hits only works with Dave," Eddie Van Halen told MTV News in an exclusive statement. "After one rehearsal, it was pure magic."
