Tonight (Jan. 5) Van Halen will perform a 45-minute set for journalists and others in attendance at the Cafe Wha?, a 250 seat club in New York City. Melodic Rock is reporting that the band will perform 'Running With the Devil,' 'Dance the Night Away,' and a song from the new album rumored to be called ‘A Different Kind of Truth.'
It's also been reported that tomorrow (Jan. 6) Van Halen will issue a press release with the first dates of the band’s 2012 tour. A Feb. 18 show in Louisville, Ken. is the first rumored date, but expected stops at Madison Square Garden and a show in Montreal are also said to already be happening. Tickets for all shows go on sale next Tuesday, Jan. 10.
David Lee Roth has posted a nearly 8-minute video entitled, “David Lee Roth Scrapbook Chapter 1″, which was shot over the last year or so.
The New York Post reported that Al Roker and Van Halen drummer Alex Van Halen interacted briefly this past Monday (Jan. 2) before a flight from Los Angeles to New York, and it wasn't friendly. Apparently Roker was seated between Alex Van Halen and his wife Stine Schyberg, and refused to switch seats so the two could sit together. Roker said that he was allergic to dogs, and that if he switched seats he’d be three seats away from a nearby dog instead of four. Eddie Van Halen and his wife Janie Liszewski were seated behind them, presumably next to each other.
Eventually Alex and his wife had to swap seats with two passengers in business class, as American Airlines agents were unable to get Roker to switch seats. “Al was looking at his phone, desperately trying to ignore the whole situation,” an unidentified source told the Post. The source also said that Alex handled the situation as calmly as one wouldn’t expect from a rock star, although his wife was considerably more irritated.
NBC wouldn't comment on the incident or Roker’s behavior, but it could make for an interesting visit if Van Halen decides to make a stop on the 'Today Show' to promote the new album.
Here's some short videos Van Halen have posted reminiscing about the past. They include Eddie decribing his beat up Volvo from back in the day, talking about the wet t-shirt contests the band would host in the seventies, describing their aspiration to be the “King of Gazzarri’s," and "Al Yells Out the Chords."
Ace Frehley stopped by NBC's "The Today Show" for a sit-down with Matt Lauer on Thurday morning (Nov. 3), then stuck around for the forth hour of the show to join Kathy Lee and Hoda.

Steven Tyler appears on “The Today Show” to address Hotel fall in Paraguay, watch day after concert footage (video)
Aerosmith singer appeared on NBC's "Today Show" this morning (Oct. 27) with Matt Lauer to talk about his accident at his hotel in Paraguay, which left Tyler with a bloody mouth and missing teeth. A statement from the band blamed the incident on a bout with food poisoning, and Tyler stuck to that story.
After greeting Lauer form Argentina by phone initially by saying "Good Morning America!" (that surely made the NBC execs happy), Tyler added: "Quite frankly, I passed out, I was in the shower and I started to get sick and I fell on my face. I woke up with the water running on me wondering where the hell I was. And the next thing you know my tour manager was calling the American Embassy and finding the best hospital,” he continued. “It was like one-stop shopping. They stitched up my eye they did a little plastic surgery and they fixed my tooth all in one fell swoop.”
Tyler addressed drug usage suspicions by saying, “Being in the program that I’m in, it’s something we have to expect,” he said. “I went public with my problems only to address them head on. You know, people thinking that is natural and normal.” Lauer then asked Tyler point blank if substance abuse was involved. “No, it’s not the issue,” he insisted.
The band also released an official statement regarding Tyler's injury yesterday: “Steven Tyler suffered minor injuries as a result of food poisoning yesterday in Paraguay. He was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released. Last night’s show has been postponed until today. Steven would like to sincerely apologize to his fans in Paraguay for the inconvenience and hopes to see them all tonight.” The band will be performing in Argentina tonight.
Tyler also shared a photo from right after his fall before he was treated, and then signed off with his best Jack Nicholson impression: “You can’t handle the tooth!”
Aerosmith returned to the stage on Wednesday night (Oct. 26) at the Jockey Club in Asuncion, Paraguay. The show was postponed one day after the hotel bathroom accident. Steven sported the black eye, the busted lip and the bruise on his chin, but sounded great at the show.
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was amazed by Tyler’s comeback following emergency dental surgery. “Steven even played harp with his busted lip,” Perry tweeted. “My mind was blown." "Gotta hand it to Steven for playing the show tonight considering how sick was from food poisoning the night before. He’s amazing,” Perry said in a separate tweet.
Here's some performance video from the show of "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing":
