Van Halen Dates Officially Cancelled
The series of "postponed" North American summer tour dates by Van Halen are now officially cancelled. Last month, Van Halen made major headlines when they abruptly postponed a full set of summer concerts without explanation, only to follow the news up days later with a video message from David Lee Roth. "As usual, we bit off way more than we can chew when it came to scheduling," explained Roth. "The band is winning, but our schedule has been sidelined for unnecessary roughness. If we continue past July 4th and all the way into Australia and Japan, then we're asking for the robot zombie tour." "We're gonna take a break because this tour is gonna take us about two years," he added. Watch Roth's video here. Now, Pollstar reports the dates are officially listed as cancelled. Although Van Halen hasn't posted an announcement on its website, if you check out the band's list of dates on Ticketmaster.com, you'll find that shows including Uncasville, Conn.; Baltimore; Rochester, N.Y.; Detroit; Toledo, Ohio; Memphis, Tenn.; Sacramento, Calif.; Reno, Nev.; and Milwaukee are now marked in red as canceled. As of post time, not all shows on Ticketmaster are listed as canceled. Refunds are available at the point of purchase. Tickets purchased online or by phone will be automatically credited to your credit card. Van Halen are heading to Japan for a series of shows in November; a commercial for the Tokyo concert can be viewed below.
Thanks for the report to HenneMusic.com.
