You can expect to see “Jump,” and “Hot For Teacher” performed live one more time.

Van Halen just announced plans for a special reunion tour, confirming the rumors that had been swirling for months before.

The announcement came with another surprise: they would be bringing along a famous friend—The rockers announced they would be reuniting for a tour with former lead singer David Lee Roth.

This will be his second tour in the last few years he will be touring with his old band. Roth parted ways with the band in 1985 and the band went on producing music without him until several years ago when he was invited back and toured with them from 2007-2008, reported MTV.

The group announced plans through a video Monday. It was posted to the band’s official site.

The video took viewers through black and white shots of the band performing on stage. The tour is set to include Alex Van Halen, David Roth, Eddie Van Halen, and Eddie’s son, Wolgang. According to WSJ, Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony is not expected to be a part of the tour.

The video also featured a scrolling red bar with the words “Van Halen on Tour 2012” along with announcing when the tickets will become available: “First Tickets on Sale January 10.”

In addition to the tour, the group is reportedly working on a new album too with Interscope Records.
