Van Halen Reportedly Set to Release First David Lee Roth Live Album
Speculation on the possibility of a Van Halen live album has reached a fever pitch. Nothing has been confirmed, but it appears that there could be a concert recording and a new box set coming as early as March 31.
MelodicRock has posted a cover image for an alleged live set, which is said to have been recorded during the band’s June 21, 2013, appearance at the Tokyo Dome. Eddie Trunk has also made mention of the twin releases this morning.
The reissue set is said to focus on Van Halen albums from 1979-82, including ‘Van Halen II,’ ‘Women and Children First,’ ‘Fair Warning’ and ‘Diver Down.’ A shot from what appears to be the Amazon ordering link is making the rounds on Twitter.

A complete track listing for ‘Tokyo Dome Live in Concert,’ again via MelodicRock, can be found below. It includes songs from all seven David Lee Roth-led Van Halen albums. The concert release, which would be their first ever with Roth, will reportedly be available digitally, as well as in double-CD and four-LP formats.
The tour was in support of ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ Van Halen’s first album with Roth since ‘1984.’ The band has been silent since it wrapped up the tour, though rumors of another project of some kind have been swirling for a while now.
