Van Halen Perform First Show of 2013 in Sydney

E-mail

van halen 14It's not just Black Sabbath who are opening up their touring season along the Tasman Sea. At the same time earlier today (April 20) that the metal giants were playing in Auckland, New Zealand, Van Halen began their concert schedule of 2013 at the Stone Music Festival, which is being held at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia.

According to Van Halen News Desk, the band played a 90-minute, 20-song set, which included solo turns by both Alex and Eddie Van Halen. While that may seem on the short side, keep in mind that it was a festival headlining slot, and their set was preceded by Aerosmith.

As if possibly to hint at the idea that Van Halen are a band rather than four individuals, the group – a first for them – wore matching outfits, which consisted of a white shirt and black vest and pants. That said, the video of the encore of 'Jump' (embedded below along with the opener, 'Unchained') sees that David Lee Roth changed outfits at some point during the night.

VHND suspects that, for their four shows in Japan in June and Wisconsin's Rock USA Festival on July 20, the band will likely add about four more songs, which includes a couple of deep tracks.
