Van Halen launched their new album, “Tokyo Dome Live In Concert”, with a live performance on ABC’TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday.
The 8-song mini-concert that shut down Hollywood Boulevard got off to a shaky start when frontman David Lee Roth cut his nose on while twirling a baton 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.”
The late night show will broadcast material from the mini-concert over two nights – Monday and Tuesday.
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.
Van Halen will launch a North American tour in support of the live album in Seattle on July 5.
The group are also scheduled to perform on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, April 2.
