On Wednesday Video of Van Halen’s David Lee Roth Stage Injury Goes Online was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Video of Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth injuring himself during the opening number of the band’s performance on ABC-TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday has been posted online.
Hitting the stage to perform their 1984 hit, “Panama”, Roth cut his nose with the microphone sometime during the song’s first verse. The singer could be seen wiping blood away as the song continued, with Roth eventually going sidestage to grab a towel in an attempt to clean it up and prevent further bleeding.
The singer left the stage during the track before returning to advise the crowd of his injury and apologized as the group took a short break before restarting the performance after Roth was outfitted with a bandage across his nose.
Van Halen then ran through a greatest hits set that included “Panama”, “Runnin’ With The Devil”, “Hot For Teacher”, “Eruption”, “You Really Got Me”, “Dance The Night Away”, Unchained” and “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love..” Watch the video – .
