It was their first TV performance with Roth since he rejoined the band in 2007.
Hollywood Boulevard was transformed into the 1980s Sunset Strip on Monday when Van Halen shut down the street in front of the El Capitan Theatre for a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It marked their first television performance since frontman David Lee Roth rejoined the band in 2007.
They started out the three-song set with the classic track "Panama," from their 1984 album. Diamond Dave wore an open jean jacket with no shirt underneath, showing off a full chest tattoo. He also sported a bandage across the bridge of his nose -- hopefully not a sign of backstage drama from the always-tumultuous band. (Actually, according to this YouTube video, Roth hurt his nose with a microphone, bandaged it up, and then started "Panama" from the top with his new look.)
