VIDEO: Van Halen – Watch complete Manchester, NH concert

Van Halen are currently winding down the first leg of their “A Different Kind Of Truth” tour.

The band wraps things up on Tuesday in New Orleans before taking a summer break, with a November series of Japanese dates appearing to be next on their schedule.

Last month, Van Halen made major headlines when they abruptly postponed a full set of summer US dates without explanation, only to follow the news up days later with a video message from David Lee Roth.

Watch Roth’s video here.

Part of Roth’s message reminded fans that photos and videos of their shows were cool with the group.

"The band is getting along famously, better than we have in quite some time, and I think the shows reveal that through the miracle of YouTube,” Roth said. “I think we're one of the few bands who relishes you bringing whatever camera — if you can carry it in and pull the trigger on it yourself, then please do. And through the eye of YouTube, you can see that we're having ourselves a hell of a time, and I think that translates into the music.”

Plenty of fans have taken Van Halen up on the offer, including some newly-posted footage of their complete March 13 show in Manchester, NH.
