Van Halen Tour Postponed, Band Hates Each Other

Van Halen has reunited for their first tour with front man, David Lee Roth, since 1983… but it seems like almost 20 years apart has not resolved the internal band issues.

The Van Halen reunion tour kicked off on February 18th, and has since played 31 dates. The tour was supposed to continue until September 25th, but on Thursday all shows after June 26th have been postponed without explanation.

According to Van Halen’s official site, all of the upcoming tour dates after their June 26th gig in New Orleans have disappeared. That includes Detroit, Philly, Cleveland, Memphis, Cincinnati, Portland, Salt Lake City, Austin, and Milwaukee. The website does not provide any explanation, and no media outlets have been able to reach a rep from the band.

An unnamed source with supposed knowledge of the tour told Rolling Stone that Van Halen members “hate each other” and that “the band is arguing like mad. They are fighting.”

That could be the explanation, but as stated, no official word as of yet.

No information has been provided regarding refunds.
