David Lee Roth Discusses Van Halen's Live Plans

(hennemusic) Van Halen recently announced that they will co-headline the inaugural Stone Music Festival at Sydney's ANZ Stadium over the April 20 and 21 weekend.

Also on the bill are co-headliner Billy Joel, Kings Of Chaos, Richie Ramone, Lifehouse and Illumination Road, among others.

For Van Halen, it's their first Australian appearance in many years, after coming close a couple of times recently, including a canceled headlining slot at Soundwave 2011.

"You're going to have to ask the rhythm section about that one," singer David Lee Roth tells The Daily Telegraph, in regards to the band's lack of shows down under. "I myself am a traveller. And let me carry with that an explanation that all those who wander are not necessarily lost. I'm calling you from Tokyo, in fact."

Roth was asked if the Aussie concert is part of his quest to get Van Halen out of America and touring the world again.

"Clearly," agrees Roth. "The Van Halens, I think, are just now starting to value that which once was, which was the capacity to experience other worlds, other communities, particularly when you are a stranger in a stranger land. I find that so refreshing. And you gotta be prepared to be a beginner, you gotta be prepared to not have your cheesburger and fries, you gotta be prepared for a lot." more on this story
