He left the band after the release of their first CD and embarked on his solo career, which brought him remarkable success. Sammy Hagar took the place of Roth and produced number of hits for the band as a lead singer. Roth briefly joined his former band mates in 1996-97 MTV music awards. He left them for the second time, only to join them back in 2006-07 in a joint tour. This re-union is supposed to be Roth’s forth homecoming since 1984.

The exact dates for the tour are not known, but it has been confirmed that tickets will be going on sale from January 10.  The band is said to have recorded a new album with Roth, which will be David first recording with the group since his breakup in 1983. It will also mark Van Halen’s first album after a gap if 13 years. Their last album was Van-Halen III which was recorded in 1998.
