Van Halen 2 Tribute Band To Perform Friday, June 25th at Gilmore Car Museum

(Hickory Corners, Mich. / May 17, 2021) - Let this serve as “Fair Warning” to the citizens of West Michigan, as touring tribute band Van Halen 2 is scheduled to rock the grounds of the Gilmore Car Museum at an evening outdoor concert next month. Van Halen 2 will perform at 8:00pm ET on Friday, June 25th, 2021, on the Gilmore Car Museum campus. Tickets are limited, and are on sale now.

Van Halen 2 will perform the unmistakable hits and incredible guitar solos made famous by American rock band Van Halen during the David Lee Roth era, from the mid-1970s through the mid-1980s. With an energetic live show, finger-tapping guitar solos, and rapid-fire double bass drum, the concert should be “guaranteed to satisfy” Van Halen fans ready to celebrate “summer nights.” Guests can learn more about Van Halen 2 at the band’s website.
