Van Halen to Perform Intimate New York City Show this Thursday

Van Halen will be getting an early start on their 2012 reunion tour by playing at New York City’s Cafe Wha? this Thursday. The Greenwich Village club only holds 250 people, with journalists across the city being invited to view the anticipated 45-minute set, according to Rolling Stone. The occasion marks the first time frontman David Lee Roth will perform with the band since the end of their last reunion tour, in 2008.

While the intimate Cafe Wha? maybe seem like a surprise venue for the band’s return, it has special resonance for Roth, whose uncle Manny Roth once owned the historic club.

Although details on Van Halen’s new album have been scarce, the band recently released an image containing the date 2.7.12.

Tickets for the band’s 2012 tour go on sale on January 10. You can view a teaser video below.
