Another week, another Van Halen story. Rumor has it that Van Halen will appear at the November 30 Grammy Nominations Concert at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater to announce that they will perform at the actual Grammy awards in February. The buzz around town is that they will also use this opportunity to announce details of their pending album and tour.
During an announcement regarding the hour-long nominations concert, the Recording Academy said the show would feature “a special live announcement from a truly iconic group regarding their historic band reunion set to take place.” The organization later dropped either an extremely blatant hint or the greatest red herring in the history of rock music with the following tweet: “Who do u predict the reuniting band will be @ The Grammy Noms... Does this hint make u wanna ‘Jump’ and ‘Dance the Night Away?’”
Meanwhile, MelodicRock.com is reporting a few additional rumors: that the band filmed a video for the forthcoming album’s first single a few weeks ago in L.A., and that the album could include a cover tune, with David Lee Roth demoing several in New York City to send to the band back in L.A. to select from.
