David Lee Roth in New York City - January 2012
Celebs are coming out in full-force revealing their inner Rocker selves for Van Halen's Comeback Tour and just last night, they played an intimate show at Greenwich Village Hotspot Cafe Wha? in New York City with the likes of Jimmy Fallon, Patton Oswalt and Tennis Champ John McEnroe showing their support. Actor Patrick Wilson, who just joined Twitter, also is rather excited making the self-titled Van Halen Album his Profile Photo and also Tweeting right away, "Van Halen tour dates announced. Yeehaw!".

At the Gig, Frontman David Lee Roth revealed that he's actually a huge fan of Lady Gaga and "has gotta meet her".  In his downtime, he went to school to become an Emergency Medical Technician seven summers ago at the 47th Precinct in North Bronx.  He says the experience was "an eye into New York City which not many people have.".  "As an Artist, everyone you see, everyone you know winds up in your voice".  After rambling on for about five minutes, his Bandmates started cuing him to start singing!

Following the Show, a humbled Lee Roth signed some Autographs outside the Venue.  One Fan was nice enough to upload a series of Clips on YouTube.  

Check out this Clip of Lee Roth, Fallon and McEnroe arriving at Cafe Wha?
