Get out your hairspray and neon spandex: back in their nearly original arrangement, Van Halen have announced their 2015 Tour! With Eddie, Alex, and David Lee Roth all taking the stage, this summer’s tour is sure to be a fantastic stroll down memory lane. Replacing Michael Anthony on bass is Eddie’s son, Wolfgang*, who can definitely more than hold his own against his father’s always-on-point axemanship. Take a walk with us down memory lane with the classic video for Panama:

The 2015 tour in support of their new album, Tokyo Dome in Concert, is crisscrossing the US this summer and fall, and will be supported by self-taught guitar prodigy Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Find dates near you!
