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.
