Poor Diamond Dave got a boo-boo…
Despite frontman David Lee Roth injuring himself, Van Halen launched their new album, “Tokyo Dome Live In Concert”, with a live performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday.
The 8-song mini-concert that shut down Hollywood Boulevard got off to a shaky start when Roth cut his nose on the microphone during the opening number, “Panama.”
The singer left the stage during the track before returning to advise the crowd of his injury and apologized as the group took a short break before restarting the performance after Roth was outfitted with a bandage across his nose.
Van Halen then ran through a greatest hits set that included “Panama”, “Runnin’ With The Devil”, “Hot For Teacher”, “Eruption”, “You Really Got Me”, “Dance The Night Away”. Unchained” and “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love.”
On Monday, the program aired footage of “Panama”, “Runnin’ With The Devil” and a portion of “Dance The Night Away”, which saw Roth invite a girl up from the crowd to dance.
The late night show will broadcast additional material from the mini-concert tonight, Tuesday March 31st.
It’s another work nite, but, I shall be back tomorrow and Thursday nite…!
Be nice to one another, and, Mahalo for y’alls patience and understanding…!
