FIRST PHOTOS: Van Halen perform on Ellen DeGeneres Show

Van Halen will perform on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, and the first photos from the band’s taping of the daytime talk show have surfaced.

On Wednesday, Eddie Van Halen tweeted a photo from backstage with son/bassist Wolfgang and actor Eric Stonestreet from Modern Family, with the caption “SECURITY!!!! #AprilFools”

The Ellen Show posted an Instagram image of David Lee Roth and Eddie performing on the program, writing “Van Halen is here tomorrow. Get ready to JUMP!”

Van Halen are on the popular daytime talk show to promote this week’s release of “Tokyo Dome Live In Concert”, the band’s first live album with Roth.

On Monday, the group shut down Hollywood Boulevard to perform an 8-song greatest hits set for ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The mini-concert opened with Roth cutting his nose with his martial arts baton during the opening number, “Panama”, reguiring a post-show trip to the hospital for 14 stitches to close up the injury.

Van Halen will launch a North American tour in support of the live album in Seattle on July 5.
