Whoa! Van Halen have been secretly rehearsing at the legendary Roxy on the Sunset Strip.
Here’s a snippet from the Roxy’s post about it on their website. Go here for the full article.
For the past 2 months VAN HALEN has been rehearsing here 2-3 times a week!!!!!!
Do you have any idea how hard that was to not tell you?? When you come in at 10:00AM and David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, and Wolfgang Van Halen are on stage with 3 other people in the room playing “Running With The Devil” and you can’t say anything?! It’s tough, to put it simply.
It all began with a 3 day video shoot for their newest single that you don’t know about yet (shhh) and we were all geeking out like never before. Little did we know, the guys had fallen in love with the room and decided to rehearse for their upcoming unannounced tour for the next 2 months!
We couldn’t film it for obvious reasons, so we’ve decided to share some of our favorite VH moments that happened for the next 2 months.
“My favorite Van Halen moment was when I came out of the kitchen and they were doing Panama. I was one of the only people standing in the room by the stage. David Lee Roth looked at me, smiled, and waved. I thought to myself “that is the only time in life I will know David Lee Roth was actually singing to me.” – @LizzyDStadler
And if you’re wondering what guitar EVH is using in the recently-released promo video shot at the Roxy for Van Halen’s forthcoming tour, it’s an EVH Wolfgang Stealth. It’s available in Special and regular versions. [geo-out country=”Australia” note=””]Here’s the flat-top Special and here’s the carved-top version.[/geo-out]
And for no reason at all other than being a raging egomaniac, here’s me at the Roxy. Don’t tell anyone that I’ve only walked past it during the daytime, I’ve never actually been inside.
I should have ended that story a sentence earlier, shouldn’t I…
