Van Halen: Kicks Off 2012 Tour In Kentucky; Videos Available

Van Halen kicked off their 2012 tour Saturday night in Louisville, Kentucky.

Out in support of the band’s new album, A Different Kind Of Truth,” Van Halen 
put in a “vintage performance,” according to Jeffrey Lee Puckett of the Louisville Courier-Journal.

The night belonged to Eddie,” writes Puckett. “Eddie Van Halen, the guitar-shredding heart of the band’s sound, was in peak form. His right hand was like a jackhammer all night as he showed utter command of his instrument, with no apparent ill effects from a 2009 surgery on his left hand. This was crucial, because while the band’s best material stands alone as seriously good, voraciously hard rock, Eddie’s guitar is Van Halen.”
