Van Halen Tour To Miss Australia

Van Halen have scratched Australia off their 2012 "a Different Kind Of Truth" touring schedule. News Limited (via Take40) reports promoter Patrick Prendergast, of When The Lion Roars, had presented the legendary rockers with a tour of the continent in the first week of November. "Van Halen have passed on playing in Australia this year - which is a shame," stated Prendergast, who had been in talks with the band since April and said a deal was "very, very close." It is the second time in two years that Van Halen have taken Australia off their live map: last fall, the group were set to headline the Soundwave Revolution festival when the national touring event fell apart in the months leading up to its September 2011 launch. On paper, a Van Halen tour of Australia seemed logistically sound as the group is set to play three concerts in Japan in late November, including two in Osaka and one in Tokyo. Thanks to Hennemusic for the report.

    Again? Cheers guys. This country isn't filled with Van Halen fans or anything. Dickheads.

    I wouldn't rule it out just yet. I don't believe anything this site says about VH anymore.

    If this is true then it is one slap in the face too many. I have held an unwavering allegiance to this band for so long but I just can't keep it up anymore. Why did Dave say "Australia" in that video?? I'm 38 years old and I now feel like a sulking 5 year old and I feel like getting every tape/cd/book/poster etc in my house with a VH logo on it and putting a match to it. To all in the VH camp that let this happen - F*CK YOU!

    Right. Because Japan and Austrailia are so very close to each other. I guess Miss SC was right. Some people out there in our nation don't have maps.

    Yeah then again, even if an Australian tour is confirmed, doesn't mean it's really going to happen.
