And The Cradle Will Rock as Van Halen will reunite with original singer David Lee Roth for a 40 city summer tour of North America.

It will be the first time that Roth performs live with the band since 1984, when he was replaced by Sammy Hagar. A brief reunion with Roth in 1996 resulted in two new songs but no tour.

Original bassist Michael Anthony will not be a part of the reunion. Late last year he was replaced by Eddie Van Halen's 15-year-old son Wolfgang.

On March 12, Van Halen will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
