Van Halen will skip Utah on its upcoming tour. Well, at least they don't have a cool band opening for them. Kool & The Gang will join Van Halen for select tour dates. Serves Van Halen right.

Tickets for the Live Nation-promoted tour go on sale beginning January 14 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. There will be shows in Las Vegas and Denver for those who want to travel.

In addition, Van Halen confirmed their new album, "A Different Kind Of Truth," will be released in the U.S. by Interscope Records on February 7. The first single from the album, "Tattoo", and its accompanying video will be debut simultaneously on Tuesday, January 10, with album pre-orders starting that day. "A Different Kind Of Truth" is Van Halen's first original studio album with singer David Lee Roth since the band's classic multi-platinum album 1984.

VIP Packages will also be available through VIP Nation, including premium seats, exclusive merchandise and more. For more information visit: http://www.VIPNation.com
