The performance airs April 2nd. Check local listings.

Van Halen are set to take over daytime television when they make their debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, April 2nd.

According to Ellen’s website, Van Halen are “‘what dreams are made of’… a legendary, ‘Unchained,’ world renowned rock band that continues to tear up the stage four decades since their beginning.”

“In a daytime exclusive, the California rockers will take over Ellen’s stage to perform one of their favorite songs as they embark on their Greatest Hits Tour!” the site states. “They’re some of the most talented, wildest and most exciting musicians of all time. Nearly all of Van Halen’s albums have gone triple platinum, featuring iconic records like ‘You Really Got Me,’ ‘Runnin’ with the Devil’ and ‘Dancing in the Street.’ Ellen and her audience will be dancing through the aisles when Van Halen brings the heat to the room!”

While no tour has been announced at this time, perhaps the band will make the Greatest Hits Tour announcement on or around the show’s April 2nd air date. Like always, we’ll keep you informed.

Two days before the appearance, the rockers will release their first-ever live album with original singer, David Lee Roth, entitled Tokyo Dome Live In Concert. The set includes 23 songs, spanning all seven of the band’s album’s with Roth, and will be released a double CD, four LP set on 180-gram vinyl and digital.

A deluxe collection featuring Tokyo Dome Live In Concert and the newly remastered Van Halen and 1984 albums, as both a four CD set and six LP vinyl set in special packaging, will also be available March 31st.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is syndicated by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Check local listings.
