Van Halen Postpones 31 Tour Dates on North American Tour

Van HalenRock group Van Halen has postponed all their tour dates following their June 26th concert in New Orleans, making a total of 31 performances to be rescheduled.

Now anchored by bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, the band hasn’t released an official statement, though the insider website Van Halen News Desk has dismissed rumors of band feuding by stating the group is getting along “splendidly”. Instead, the break is to prevent the classic rock quartet from getting burnt out.

“The band has been working tirelessly for the last 18 months, writing and recording ‘A Different Kind Of Truth’, filming the ‘Tattoo’ video, rehearsing, putting together the show themselves (lighting, the videos, the stage, routing the tour, and lots of behind the scenes stuff that most people don’t even know about),” the statement read. “The band wants the second leg to be as awesome as the first. And for that to happen they want to put more time into the planning of it. Not just continue on with the same show.”

There’s been no word yet of when the dates will be rescheduled. We’ll keep you updated when they do.

  1. not suprised… prima-donnas!

  2. It ain’t the real Van Halen without Michael Anthony, I’m sorry wolfie……

  3. I just got done reading that Eddie played Bass on their latest disc, David is Right, This isn’t Vanhalen without Mikey!

    • Brother, that is nothing new. Eddie tracked most of the bass on their stuff. He’s a control freak. Have you read Sammy’s book yet. Worth the read for sure.

    • I thought the bass sounded a bit too good for Wolfie, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt….

    • I remember when Sammy joined, Ed said in articles how he was just a normal dude, like all of us….not a snob like Dave…then Gary, he said he wasn’t a snob like Sammy… he has repeated himself so many times, it is funny…plus he has been the biggest backstabbing endorsement whore in history….

    • Have any of you read Sammy’s book? It was a good read. Eddie is a total wack-job.
