The latest incarnation of Van Halen will roll out material from its new album, "III," at a listening party at Hollywood's Billboard Live next month, but fans will need luck, not money, to check out the event.
The band, complete with new frontman Gary Cherone, will visit the club on March 12, five days before the album hits stores, to unveil its new album, and to field questions form the audience.
