Van Halen Reunion Tour Might Not Happen After All
Source close to band says 40-city jaunt with David Lee Roth has been postponed indefinitely.

You Tell Us
Not so fast on breaking out those ice skates in hell. (Yes, those were our words we might soon be eating.)
The Van Halen reunion with original singer David Lee Roth — the one Eddie Van Halen described as feeling "pure magic" with after one rehearsal (see "Eddie Van Halen Says Reunion With David Lee Roth For Tour Is 'Pure Magic' ") — might not be happening after all.
A source close to the band, requesting anonymity, told USA Today on Tuesday (February 20) that the 40-city tour — tickets to which were expected to go on sale this weekend — has been postponed indefinitely.
Meanwhile, Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang Van Halen's publicist — who announced the tour February 2 — said reports of a cancellation should be considered rumors until an official statement is released.
In mid-February, Roth spoke of the reunion with Rolling Stone, saying that he hopes the reunion lasts beyond the summer trek. "God willin', and the creek don't run dry, just like Grandma Roth used to say," he told the magazine in typical Roth-speak. "Barring any act of God or Ferrari ... yeah. I have hope and faith, and that's more than just the name of a couple of strippers from Albuquerque."
Regardless, on March 12, Van Halen will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (see "R.E.M., Van Halen, Grandmaster Flash Make Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame") in a ceremony that could feature Van Halen performing with both Roth and his replacement, Sammy Hagar (see "Sammy Hagar's Plans: Beach, Cruise, Sharing Stage With David Lee Roth?").

Thank you Emma, but we already have one huge thread going on about this subject.
