VAN HALEN MEMBERS TO ATTEND ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTION
According to Premiere Radio Networks, all the members of VAN HALEN — Eddie and Alex Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar — have told the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that they will be attending the induction ceremony on March 12 in New York. Roth, Anthony and Hagar had said from the start that they would be there, and Premiere Radio Networks learned last night (Thursday, March 1) that Eddie and Alex have reserved a table for themselves and their families. However, they will not be performing. VELVET REVOLVER will pay tribute to them, with the band's Scott Weiland and Slash actually inducting them. This marks the second year in a row that one of the inductees, who are all there and accounted for, will not perform. METALLICA paid tribute to a non-performing BLACK SABBATH last year.
For the first time the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be broadcast live on VH1 Classic, and be streamed on AOL without commercials. The ceremony will air on Monday, March 12 at 8:00 p.m. Previous induction ceremonies were only offered on a tape-delay basis on VH1.
LORDI has announced its first ever North American tour dates in support of the band's critically acclaimed album, "The Arockalypse". "The Arockalypse" will see a March 20 North American release via The End Records.
LORDI's "monster invasion" will launch on April 20 in Anaheim, California at House of Blues and wrap with a two-night stint at the Bamboozle music festival in East Rutherford, New Jersey on May 5 and 6.
