Doesn't Eric Stonestreet know Valerie Bertinelli is with the band?!

The Modern Family star Instagrammed a video of Eddie Van Halen's ex-wife rocking out at Van Halen's Jimmy Kimmel Live! show Monday night, joking that "this rando lady kept getting in my way."

He even asks the Hot in Cleveland star, whose son, Wolfgang Van Halen, plays bass in the group, "Can you move out of the way, please?"

Valerie shoots Eric quite a look, but she does move out of frame (at least temporarily) so he can document the band's Hollywood Boulevard takeover for the social media-sphere to see!

Van Halen, Jimmy Kimmel


This was, indeed, a memorable gig. Van Halen rarely does TV performances, and this particular show was their first since David Lee Roth rejoined the group in 2007. It wasn't without incident, though—David rocked out a little too hard, perhaps, injuring his nose in the process!

The group had to stop playing "Panama," the first song in their set, when the beak bustup happened. "Let me get this taped up," David said, making a quick exit from the stage. Eddie used the brief interlude for a guitar solo, and before long, his bandmate returned to the stage with his nose bandaged up.

Hey, the show must go on! The group, which is releasing new album Tokyo Dome Live in Concert on Tuesday and embarking on a North American tour this summer, went on to play several other hits, including "Runnin' With the Devil," "Hot for Teacher" and "Dance the Night Away." 

Jimmy Kimmel couldn't help but get in a joke or two about the group's past feuds, many of which have played out in public. "Their relationship status is 'It's complicated,'" the late-night host quipped in his opening monologue, "but that's all right, they're playing tonight."

The second part of Van Halen's Hollywood Boulevard takeover will air on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!
