Van Halen concert chronology

The Van Halen 2015 Tour was a concert tour of the United States and Canada during the summer and fall of 2015 by the hard rock band Van Halen.[1] This tour was in support of the group's live album, Tokyo Dome Live in Concert, recorded during the band's previous tour.

History[edit]

On March 24, 2015, the official Van Halen website was updated to announce a concert tour to take place during the summer and fall of 2015, primarily in outdoor venues.[2] The band also announced that they would be performing on television for the first time, with performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 30,[3] and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 2.[4]

The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band served as the opening act for all dates except for the September 19 show in Atlanta, Georgia.

The tour ultimately grossed $26 million, covering 39 cities and 41 shows.[5]
