The Official Word: Van Halen Tour Kaput

By |

It looks like David Lee Roth's first tour with Van Halen in twenty-three years won't happen after all. Over the weekend, employees of tour promoters Live Nation were informed that "the Van Halen tour has been shut down." It's not yet clear what went wrong: Just last week, the band released their first official photo of their new line-up to Rolling Stone. At the time, Roth told us that he was thrilled about the tour, and that the reunion could be permanent: "I have hope and faith — and that's more than just the name of a couple of strippers from Albuquerque," he said. Check back here for more VH news as the story unfolds.
