Van Halen – “Tattoo” Video

Tom Breihan | January 10, 2012 - 9:09 am

Last week, Van Halen announced plans for a reunion tour and a new album — their first with original frontman David Lee Roth since 1984. And now we’ve got the no-frills video for their new single “Tattoo.” The band recorded the black-and-white clip at the Roxy in L.A. last week. Don’t expect any little-kid versions of the band members, or anthropomorphic dancing hamburgers; this is a strictly performance-only affair. In the video, Diamond Dave shows that he’s as great a dancer and as big a ham as he ever was, though he’s slightly less interested in accurately lip-syncing. As for the song itself, it’s got a fun EVH guitar solo, but it’s otherwise total bathroom-break material on that forthcoming tour. Check it out below.
