Tickets to see Van Halen Oct. 22 at the Palace of Auburn Hills go on sale Saturday at a price of $149.50, $79.50 and $59.50.
That makes top tickets less expensive than those for reunion tours from the Police and Genesis, two other marquee reunions to greet concertgoers in 2007.
The Van Halen tour marks lead singer David Lee Roth's first outing with the band in 22 years. Roth was behind the band's early hits, though the group's core -- guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen and bassist Michael Anthony -- went on to great success in the late '80s and early '90s with singer Sammy Hagar.
The band's tenure with a third singer, ex-Extreme singer Gary Cherone, was an artistic and commercial flop.
Bassist Anthony will not be joining the band on the upcoming tour; he is being replaced by Eddie Van Halen's 16-year-old son, Wolfgang Van Halen.
