Roth Declares Van Halen's A Different Kind Of Truth Tour Over

(hennemusic) David Lee Roth has posted a video thanking Van Halen fans for their support of the "A Different Kind Of Truth" tour, which wrapped up July 24 in Paso Robles, California.

"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.
