Roth Declares Van Halen's A Different Kind Of Truth Tour Over
"A Different Kind Of Truth" debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart behind UK singing sensation Adele. VH sold 187,000 copies in its debut week, while Adele enjoyed a massive sales bump due to her increased profile around the Grammy Awards, where she swept 6 categories, including Album Of The Year for "21". Adele's 242,000 sales week was virtually double of the numbers the week before, denying VH a #1 US debut.
VH kicked off their 2012 tour on February 18 in Louisville, Kentucky with openers Kool & The Gang. The band's setlist showcased four tunes from the new disc; as the tour progressed, a cool trend took shape: the band was switching songs in and out the show in order to perform some rarely-played vintage tracks.
Following the end of the first North American leg of the tour in New Orleans, the band was forced into a lengthy hiatus when Eddie required surgery for a severe bout of Diverticulitis. Check out the video here.
