According to Australian website MelodicRock.com, the mighty Van Halen are set to reunite with complete lineup for a full tour in 2007.

Negotiations are currently underway to re-unite Van Halen with their original frontman for a tour in 2007 that will take in Amercia and possibly other territories. Negotiations between all parties have been underway for some time, trying to put together a big 2007 re-union tour, according to the site.

However, there will be no new material to go with the tour so the tour will only feature classic Van Halen songs. There is no plans for a new compilation or a new studio album -- just the tour.

Van Halen last toured in 2004 with Sammy Hagar, but the tour ended on a sour note and Hagar has not talked to Eddie Van Halen since.

    I'd be stoked to see Van Halen touring again, especially if there were a chance of seeing them with David Lee Roth as front man.

    well i dunno about this, but why would only an Austrailian website know about something this big? i dont think it'll happen.

    Itd be great if they did reunite, but I dont think they will. One website isnt enough to convince me.

    Thank f***in' Jesus. Sammy Haggar is the biggest queer ever. Diamond dave is the only frontman for Van Halen. I'm sure tickets will be about a bajillion dollars a piece, but I'm goin' anyway.

    They didn't mention that Micheal Anthony wont be on this tour, instead EVH's son, Wolfgang will be on bass. Not one to bitch, but this tour can only be bittersweet without Micheal Anthony.

    Thats GAY! I don't want to see VH with Eddies fat son on bass. Also, I know Sam wasn't the original, but he's not that bad. At least he's not an arogant jerk like DLR and EVH.

    werd get a tick to one of the early dates. But if they make it to the east coast Ill definately go and make it my 5th VH show.

    They need to just give up and call it quits already. They should have ended on a high note several years ago, but now that luxury is no longer afforded to them.

    that'd be great, if they came to scotland! lol but whats the chances in that
    ye scotland owns!but no1 ever comes...

    i think it's amazing that they're not making new songs. classic bands trying to make new material is really hard and rarely successful. but for a tour, i'm definitely gonna see them if DLR and EVH are back on stage together

    Anthony is currently touring with Hagar, And I'm perfectly OK with having three Van Halens on stage. Michael Anthony is not a great bassist. He doesn't stand out remotely in the world of bassists. Yes, I'd rather have him there, but Wolfgang is fine with me.

    I really would like to see them...but I also think they need to call it quits. Don't great me wrong, Eddie is one of my favorite guitarists, but they are getting pretty old. All they are doing is touring and playing old songs. Personally I think Eddie should start a new band, something new and really different.

    Funniest thing I ever heard anyone say to me: "who's the guitarist in Van Halen"?

    There was rumor of Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang touring together, i guess they are now, but anything with eddie, even his own band, would be sweet.

    Roth is a joke but I always did like his Van Halen era better than I did the Sammy hagar era. Sammy is a better singer but I feel Roth fits the band better.

    DLR is dreadful!!! Hagar is the only singer worthy of hearing righ now. Check out his new album, in fact check out all his albums, quality songs... EVH was good in his day, he should've stopped after 'Beat it' though, if you want quality guitar playing check out Satch, Moore, Beck etc. Van Hagar would be worth a ticket, but Sam's having far too much fun with the Waborita's to do that! See you in Cabo Sam, rock on dude!

    Don't actually trust this report. It doesn't mention DLR by name or give any news on the status of Michael Anthony, who isn't in favour with the Van Halens right now. Hmm. We shall see.

    Dude Roth i might piss myself. and pete24v your dead wrong sams good but he didn't have that "feeling" dave had.
