It is rare that a rock group finds enough success to last through the years and bring live music to multiple generations. Van Halen is one of those acts that keeps it coming and offers the audience a chance to let their heads bang and teased hair fly. If travellers are planning on visiting Canada on March 21st and cannot get enough of classic rock, they can purchase tickets for the Van Halen show coming to ScotiaBank Place, which will surely make for an unforgettable concert to attend on holiday.
Since the early 1970s, Van Halen has been performing in front of audiences across the globe, bringing their sense of style and unique sound to the masses. They have been so successful, that the group was honoured as an inductee at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. Hailing from California, the members of the band have come and gone over the years, but their songs have remained classic and recognisable worldwide.
This tour signifies the return of lead singer David Lee Roth, who first performed with the band more than four decades ago and has returned to perform again. Not only is Van Halen stopping in Canada's capital city, their tour dates also include some other great cities travellers may want to check out as well, including Toronto and Montreal. Tickets are already on sale for the concert, so travellers may wish to grab seats soon, as this show may sell out quickly due to the popularity of the band.
Van Halen's top hits are many, including memorable songs such as "You Really Got Me" and "Jump." On this tour, travellers can also enjoy a fun set by Kool and the Gang, which will open for Van Halen during Ottawa's show. This act hails from the same decade, but offers a very different sound, with disco and funk hits such as "Celebration" and "Ladies Night."
No matter what decade guests in Canada's capital city grew up in, attending a Van Halen concert in this vibrant city can be a fantastic event to experience with loved ones on a holiday trip that includes sightseeing, tours of Ottawa and great entertainment opportunities.
