Who’d have thought this circus train would have derailed? Now, nothing’s officially cancelled (yet) but the latest Van Halen reunion tour has been hit with a few postponements and possible cancellations. Van Halen’s website states that Eddie is currently “undergoing a battery of comprehensive medical tests to determine a defined diagnosis and recommended medical procedures.” The site urges ticket holders in Dallas, Cincinnati, Raleigh and Baltimore to hold onto their tickets as they’ll be honored at the future date or fully refunded if the Halen does not return.
This tour is the first time original singer Diamond David Lee Roth has rejoined the Van Halen brothers on tour in 22 years. Bassist Michael Anthony was not asked to rejoin the group for this tour. Instead he was replaced by Eddie’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen.
