Among the tracks that were aired were "Running With The Devil", "You Really Got Me", "I'll Wait", "Panama" and "Jump". Singer David Lee Roth Roth went through several minor costume changes, including adding a newsboy hat, a sailor hat, scarves, shades and different jackets.

"Thank you to everyone that came out to #RockUSA13 last night!!!," tweeted VAN HALEN bassist Wolfgang Van Halen after the concert. "We had a great time! Hope to be back soon!!"

VAN HALEN's setlist was as follows:

VAN HALEN backed out of 31 North American dates last summer, citing exhaustion, and then Eddie Van Halen was sidelined for four-to-six months after undergoing surgery for the inflammatory intestinal affliction diverticulitis.

Roth recently gave an interview to Rolling Stone in which he expressed his desire to work on fresh material with Eddie Van Halen and tour outside the U.S., saying, "We have an audience and we have a potential future in many, many places . . . I don't know where the VAN HALEN future lies aside from the States."
