Van Halen Confirms Australian Date

Van Halen has been confirmed for the upcoming Stone Music Festival in Sydney, Australia. The fest, which is scheduled for April 20 and 21, takes place at Sydney's ANZ Stadium.

David Lee Roth will join VH for the first time Down Under, while it is the band's first time there since 1998. During the course of that year, the group was joined by vocalist Gary Cherone. It will be Van Halen's only Australian date, a fact which many Aussie fans expressed via social media.

Others set for the two-day fest include Billy Joel, Buckcherry, Richie Ramone, Lifehouse, Kings of Chaos and Illumination Band.

Tickets for the Stone Music Festival went on sale Thursday. The fest was inspired by a cult '70s biker film named simply Stone.
