NOTE: This post is about the February 2007 Van Halen tour postponement; for news of the rumored tour postponement/cancellation in March 2008, click here.
Well, that was quick:
It’s true. The Van Halen tour that was never officially announced is now officially postponed indefinitely, sources told Pollstar.
The rumored tour took on an air of reality after a trade magazine announced that original singer David Lee Roth was about to sign on the dotted line, and that was soon followed by a press release via Eddie Van Halen’s spokeswoman-slash-girlfriend.
Unfortunately, the worldwide frenzy of a VH reunion was too good to be true, at least for the present day.
However, there was a lot of paper getting inked and Pollstar understands that a tour announcement might not have been far off.
On the other hand, if you had February 20 in your “pick the day the Van Halen tour goes kaput” office pool, congratulations! Be sure to spend your winnings on a nice bottle of Cabo Wabo tequila.
