Van Halen Post ‘Tokyo Dome’ Teaser Clip for ‘I’m the One’
The clip, which you can listen to above, excerpts roughly a minute and a half from the Tokyo Dome version of "I'm the One." Like the other 22 performances collected on the new double-disc set, it was recorded June 21, 2013, during the Tokyo stop on the band's tour in support of its 2012 reunion album with original singer David Lee Roth, A Different Kind of Truth.
Billed as the band's "definitive live album," Dome is Van Halen's second concert release, but the first to be culled from dates with Roth in the lineup; their previous stage recording, 1993's Live: Right Here, Right Now, was compiled during Sammy Hagar's tenure. (Meanwhile, a number of archival shows from the band's early years remain tantalizingly unreleased.)
As previously reported, Tokyo Dome is scheduled to arrive alongside the first in a series of new remasters from the Van Halen vaults, starting with 1984 and Van Halen and continuing later this year with Van Halen II, Diver Down, Fair Warning and Women and Children First. A "greatest hits" tour has also been rumored for 2015, but no dates have been officially announced.
