Any year that kicks off with the (mostly) original line-up of Van Halen playing a 250-seat club in Greenwich Village is certainly going to be one to remember. Next month, Radiohead kicks off an arena tour in Florida, then in March Bruce Springsteen is slated to launch a tour with the E Street Band. April is going to bring not one, but two Coachella festivals. From there it just gets crazy with reunion tours, festivals and a likely 50th anniversary tour of the Rolling Stones.

We have a lot of high hopes for 2012, but also some fears. Rock tours don't always go as hoped and our heroes sometime disappoint us. Click through to see 10 of our hopes and fears for 2012.
