Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry will issue a proclamation naming
Tuesday, July 31 as Van Halen Day in Fort Wayne to commemorate the concert event.
"With the Great Recession putting cities across America
between a rock and a hard place, Fort Wayne took a page from the Van Halen play
book to keep our community rocking. Guided by Eddie’s masterful guitar riffs,
we used innovation and cost-savings to ensure a strong financial base. We
imitated David Lee Roth’s iconic kick splits to showcase our incredible assets.
And just as Van Halen added Wolfie, we’re building for the future with a
vibrant downtown, great concerts and our own amazing Legacy fund. Rock on Van
Halen," said Henry.
Van Halen recently premiered the video for She’s The Woman, the
second single from A Different Kind Of Truth, the band’s first original
studio album with singer David Lee Roth since the iconic, multi-platinum 1984.
Shot during its on-going live tour, the video presents ‘a greatest hits’ of the
band’s concert moments.
Formed in Los Angeles in 1974, Van Halen changed the rock
and roll landscape forever with the release of their self-titled, 1978 debut
album. Displaying unparalleled stage presence, musicianship, and songwriting
abilities, the band has sold more than 75 million albums sold worldwide and
created a record of achievement that is hard to top. Van Halen joins an
elite short list of two-time Diamond Award (10 million sales) honorees for
their albums Van Halen and 1984. The band was inducted into the
Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in March of 2007.
Opening act, Ky-mani Marley, son of legendary Bob Marley,
has gained world-wide recognition and praise for his musical style, which
transcends cultural and creative boundaries incorporating world music, hip hop,
blues, rock, and reggae into one melodic entity. Since 1999, Marley has
released four studio albums and an autobiography, a GRAMMY nomination, and in
2009 started the charitable Love Over All Foundation (LOAF), which caters to
empowering and educating youth. Ky-mani Marley is currently putting the
finishing touches on his new album, Evolution of a Revolution.
