David Lee Roth Reaching Deep Into Van Halen Bag For Tour

David Lee Roth kicked off a tour this week with Bad Company, and he’s reaching deep into his Van Halen days for his set list.

Diamond Dave, who released an album with his DLR Band last year, is serving up sublime VH classics like “Mean Streets,” “Everybody Wants Some,” and “Unchained” as well as the band “1984″ mainstream hits “Jump,” “Hot For Teacher” and “Panama.” Of course, Roth will also sprinkle in a few of his solo hits, like “Yankee Rose” and “Tobacco Road.”

Each night, Roth pieces together his setlist from a pool of 23 potential songs, that also includes “Runnin’ With The Devil,” “You Really Got Me,” “Atomic Punk,” “Little Dreamer,” “Ice Cream Man,” “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love,” “Dance The Night Away,” “Spanish Fly,” “So This Is Love,” “Romeo Delight,” “Little Guitars,” “(Oh) Pretty Woman,” “Slam Dunk!,” “Jamie’s Cryin’,” and “Beautiful Girls” as well as the aforementioned tracks.
