Van Halen To Headline Rock USA Festival This Summer

Van Halen have announced their first U.S. concert appearance for 2013. The rock group, featuring original frontman David Lee Roth, will headline the Rock USA festival at Ford Festival Park in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The group closes out the fest on Saturday, July 20 following performances by Ratt, Jackyl and Dokken.

Also booked for the July 17-20 festival are Bret Michaels, Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Buckcherry, Chevelle, Queensryche, Great White, Slaughter, Sevendust and Saliva.

Van Halen's Wisconsin appearance comes one year after the newly reformed group had to cancel a show in the region due to, according to Roth, the band having "bit off more than they could chew." Van Halen canceled a total of 31 shows last summer.

Van Halen will also play Australia's Stone Music Festival on April 20.
