Van Halen is Coming to Spokane

Posted By on Fri, May 11, 2012 at 10:10 AM

We just got back from the Spokane Arena, where we were dazzled by a glam-rock press conference to fullfil the arena's promise of a "ginormous" concert announcement.

With stacks of the speakers and guitars lined up on a small stage, arena management got on the mic and announced that....drum roll....VAN HALEN is coming to Spokane on August 21.

One of our Facebook fans actually predicted this.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, May 19 at ticketswest.com and the Arena's box office. Tickets start at $49.50 and go all the way up to $125. 

Purist Van Halen fans will be pleased to know that this is Van Halen, not Van Hagar. By which we mean that David Lee Roth, the band's original flamboyant front man, will be in tow. It's the first time they've been in Spokane since 2002.

Van Halen released a new album, A Different Kind of Truth earlier this year, which is the band's first record with Roth since the iconic 1984. Released, duh, in 1984.

Here's a video from the new album.
