Van Halen Reunion Over Already.

From USA Today:


That Van Halen reunion? Never mind
The Van Halen reunion tour featuring the return of David Lee Roth has been postponed indefinitely, as first reported by Pollstar, and confirmed by a member of Van Halen's camp who requested anonymity. Tickets for the 40-date outing, announced on the bandís website Feb. 2, were expected to go on sale this weekend. Organizers would not comment on reasons for the tourís delay.

So you fans will have to wait a while to gauge the ability of Wolfgang Van Halen to replace Michael Anthony, or the present-day quality of Roth's voice.

Re: Van Halen Reunion Over Already.

I'm guessing this little "bump" is no more than a carefully planned publicity stunt.....they'll go on tour, yeah.....but only after they've had a chance to dangle the carrot a little while longer.

Or, in Ed's case....a banana.

Whatever they do, it ain't gonna top what they did before. I'm not concerned in the slightest.

Re: Van Halen Reunion Over Already.

I was just hoping it'd work to keep David Lee Roth from ever doing this again:

Re: Van Halen Reunion Over Already.

The weird thing is... I actually like that. His band are tight, and clearly, he's having a laugh doing it. I shouldn't like it. I'm almost embarrassed to say I do. A bit.


OK, yeah, it's crap.

But at the same time it's cool!

"if you cant cheese on yourself your way too uptight."

I agree with that comment.

Re: Van Halen Reunion Over Already.

The reunion isn't over (not yet at least). It's just the tour that last been postponed for now. From what I've heard it will happen but just later this year. But according to Dave they have only rehearsed one time for now.

Regards

Re: Van Halen Reunion Over Already.

Dave wanted a reunion, and this isn't a reunion. Hopefully someone (Dave I guess) is holding out for Mike Anthony on bass. Let Wolfie play some rhythm or keyboards or something if Eddie insists on having him there....Wolfie can cover some solos if Eddie is too far in the bag by the end of the gigs maybe...

I don't think Ed will let Mike back in again. Ed clearly has a problem with Mike selling hot sauces and Sammy selling tequila. But there is nothing with selling 30k USD striped guitars, right Ed .

Re: Van Halen Reunion Over Already.

Getting rid of Mike was a very uncool move IMO...

Wolfie could / should have his own band.

Regardless of what anyone suspects. Mike can actually play the bass as proven on Unlawful Carnal Knowledge... but his real strength in a band unit is his awesome backing vocals. Maybe that wasnt necessary with Sammy... but it was a huge part of the DLR era VH sound
