Van Valen reunion tour CANCELLED.
Was it too good to be true? Pollstar is reporting that the much-hyped Van Halen reunion tour with David Lee Roth has already fallen through and is now “officially postponed infinitely.” Sources tell the tour magazine that a tour announcement may have not been far off, and just last week, Rolling Stone posted excerpts from an upcoming interview with Roth about the reunion, which is slated for its next issue. The magazine’s Web site also unveiled the first-ever group shot of the current lineup of the band, including Eddie Van Halen, his brother Alex on drums and his son Wolfgang on bass.
Sources also tell Denver’s Rocky Mountain News that Van Halen’s performance at next month’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony may also be in jeopardy too.
Roth told Rolling Stone the band had been rehearsing together again and their chemistry is currently “combustible,” though with today’s news, it appears that combustion may have actually happened between Roth and the Van Halen family.
Van Halen was expected to do a full, 40 city tour this summer.
