, Staff

Van Halen have revealed plans to return the road in support of their forthcoming album, A Different Kind Of Truth, their first album with original frontman David Lee Roth in 28 years. The legendary rockers will hit the road next month and make their way to Boston for a show at the TD Garden on Sunday, March 11. Tickets for the concert, which range in price from $49.50 to $149.50, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Kool & The Gang will open the show.

A Different Kind Of Truth will be released on February 7 through Interscope Records. It marks the first original studio album with singer David Lee Roth since the band’s classic multi-platinum album 1984. The band’s 12th studio effort also marks the recording debut of bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, son of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, who replaced original bassist Michael Anthony in 2006. A Different Kind of Truth is the band’s first album of new material since 1998’s Van Halen III, which featured one-time frontman and Boston native Gary Cherone (of Extreme) on lead vocals. The video for lead single “Tattoo” is streaming below.

A deluxe version of the album will be released, containing a bonus Acoustic DVD called “The Downtown Sessions,” which will contain acoustic versions of popular Van Halen songs such as “Panama”, “You and Your Blues”, “Beautiful Girls” and “You Really Got Me”.

Prior to the show in Boston, Van Halen will perform at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Saturday, March 3. Tickets for the show will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $110 and $135.
