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.
