Van Halen’s David Lee Roth Injures Himself During ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ Performance [Videos]
Jimmy Kimmel poked some fun at it on Tuesday night's show, replaying it in super-slow motion.
The band was on the show to celebrate release of its new album Toyko Dome Live in Concert with an eight song mini concert on Hollywood Boulevard.
During the first take of their opening number, “Panama," Roth cut his nose on his microphone. He exited the stage, got patched up and returned, so the band could rock out for all eight songs.
With the rest of the band playing on stage by themselves for over a minute, after the injury Roth reappeared and said: “Alright, alright, I f—ked my nose up on the microphone here. So, I’m going to wear the Band-Aid and we’re going to start the whole thing over for ya, and we’re going to give you a little extra for your patience here.”
Kimmel treated his fans to slow-motion video of the incident on his show on Tuesday night's show.
The first part of the eight-song mini show aired on Kimmel Monday night, showing Van Halen performing “Panama,” (the second, injury-free take) “Runnin’ With The Devil” and a bit of “Dance The Night Away.” Besides those three tracks, Van Halen played “Hot For Teacher,” “Eruption,” “You Really Got Me,” “Unchained” and “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love.”
The singer’s injury wasn’t the only thing featured on Tuesday’s show. Van Halen’s performances of “Eruption,” “You Really Got Me” and “Hot for Teacher” were aired as well.
This week marked the first time the group has performed on U.S. TV with Roth since he rejoined the group in 2007.
Fans will get to see a lot more of Van Halen soon, as the band has announced a massive 2015 North American tour. They’ll kick things off on July 5 in Seattle and make their way around the U.S. and Canada through Oct. 2, when they play in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl.
