Van Halen are rumored to be preparing to head back on tour, after the sudden cancellation of all forthcoming dates in July.
At the time, rumors of internal arguments were rife. They claimed the cancellations were because they "bit off more than we can chew."
Ironically, Eddie Van Halen soon faced an internal battle of his own. In July he started a spicy detox diet of cayenne pepper, fruit and maple syrup, which allegedly caused his intestines to "explode", putting their tour plans back on hold while he spent six month recovering.
The new tour rumors are based on an image posted by singer David Lee Roth, though we can't seem to find it. The Pulse Of Radio (via Blabbermouth) say the image of Roth and his sheepdog by a sports arena, with the caption "Start spreading the" is a sign of a new tour.
Nope, we don't understand either.
However, the band did say they'd prepare a tour after Eddie Van Halen has spent six months recovering, so the timing is right, and they've already booked three dates for this summer. It looks like the wheels are in motion.
Were you affected by the cancelled dates in 2012? Will you attend any new shows this year? Let us know in the comments.
