Looking at Van Halen’s Final 2015 North American Dates & Typical Setlist

September 15, 2015

Loud guitars, memorable hooks and nostalgia have filled arenas across the U.S. and Canada along Van Halen’s 2015 North American tour. The iconic stadium rockers have taken the continent by storm and have just nine dates remaining through the beginning of October. Don’t expect tickets to be cheap if perusing the secondary market, however – Van Halen tickets on TicketIQ are still averaging over $200 over the band’s final two weeks on the road.

A September 25 stop at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Texas serves as the most expensive show left. Van Halen tickets in Texas currently average $279.74 and the get-in price is $50. Two other shows also average above $200 – back-to-back gigs at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 2 and 4 average a $201.38 and $263.02 ticket, respectively.

Van Halen is touring in support of 2012’s A Different Kind of Truth, their first full-length record to feature original vocalist David Lee Roth since 1984. Their summer run through North America is their first since the conclusion of the “A Different Kind of Truth” Tour in July of 2013.

Previewing The Average Van Halen Setlist Ahead of 2015 U.S. Tour

It hasn’t been all smiles in the Van Halen camp in the weeks leading up to the band’s 2015 summer tour, but the band is still slated to embark on its three-month run through the U.S. next week. Earlier this month iconic guitarist Eddie Van Halen sounded off on lead singer David Lee Roth in a lengthy interview with Billboard, claiming that the vocalist “needs to grow up” and “doesn’t want to be [his] friend”.

Despite the apparent animosity, the band will play its 42 dates through the beginning of October and is drawing big demand for tickets on the secondary market in the process. According to TicketIQ, the average secondary price for Van Halen tickets across its U.S. tour is now $205.50. Three of those dates will average above $300 – August 9 at PNC Bank Arts Center ($316.61), September 25 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion ($310.10) and September 23at Gexa Energy Pavilion ($301.94).

Even Van Halen’s cheapest dates are generating lofty secondary price. The least expensive gig comes on August 23at Hersheypark Stadium in Pennsylvania, where tickets own a secondary average of $126.79 and get-in price is $35. Other cheapest-priced shows include July 7 at Amphitheater Northwest ($134.25/avg.), July 30 at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion ($144.11/avg.) and July 14 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater ($147.34/avg.).
