Van Halen Tour Falls Apart
The Van Halen reunion could be falling apart at the seams, with 31 dates of their US tour being dropped from their website without any clear reason. Fears are growing after Rolling Stone spoke to an insider who said "They hate each other. The band is arguing like mad. They're fighting." Live Nation, who promotes the tour, declined to comment on the cancellations, as did the band. One arena representative is quoted as saying "You want to know the absolute f--kin' truth? I have no f--kin' idea." Some observers believe the tour isn't selling enough tickets, some of which cost up to $160, but others say it has been a success. If you're a fan of the band and bought tickets to see them, don't fret - the Van Halen website says: "These dates have been postponed, not cancelled. Several shows on their 2007-2008 tour were postponed as well, and all were ultimately rescheduled." Here's a list of the 13 shows that are going ahead (via Classic Rock), with the cancelled show below. Have you been affected?
