DLC Week of 11/23 - Van Halen!

Live life like there's no tomorrow! Van Halen DLC is officially headed to the Rock Band Music Store!!


Boston, Mass. – November 23, 2015 – Harmonix is excited to announce today that more music from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legends Van Halen is coming to the Rock Band Music Store for Xbox One and PlayStation®4 tomorrow, November 24!

With more than 80 million records sold, Van Halen has earned its place as one of the most popular rock and roll bands around the world. With the unmatched showmanship of vocalist David Lee Roth, the mind-blowing technical expertise of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, and the thundering drums of Alex Van Halen, the group’s music is the perfect fit for Rock Band’s four-player, full-band gameplay.

Van Halen just finished a blockbuster North American tour, concluding with a heralded two night stand at the Hollywood Bowl. Earlier this year, the band released newly remastered versions of their first six studio albums as well as Tokyo Dome Live In Concert, their first live album with Roth.

The “Van Halen Hits Pack 01” includes highlights from early in the band’s career, from “Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love” from the group’s 1978 self-titled debut to 1984’s memorable single, “Hot For Teacher.” This essential pack is rounded out by four other heavy hitters, including “And The Cradle Will Rock…,” “Dance The Night Away,” “Runnin' With The Devil,” and “Unchained.”

The full “Van Halen Hits Pack 01” can be purchased for $9.99, with singles available for download for $1.99 a track.
