    And that's exactly what you fail to see, the fact that I am objective! I OBJECT to any of the original 4 being put out on their ass! If Dave was back out, or even Alex, I'd still be screaming about it because Edward is a fucked up tool! He's still a bitter prick! Why, when you have the oppertunity of a LIFETIME, Mike is willing to do the tour, would you shove it up every fans ass AGAIN, and not have him in the lineup???? EVH is a fucking retart, this is 1996 all over again! Unfortunately this time most are so desperate for the real thing that they are willing to accept this abomination of a tour!!!! I think this is the final nail in the coffin for these guys! I hope Edwards Karma comes back to him quickly! He deserves whatever he gets!

    Not to be a dick, but I think a lot of us here are sick of hearing people constantly bitch about this band. If you don't like whats going on than listen to something else.

    But it sounds to me as if Eddie is not the only bitter prick around here.

    For some reason when I read "retart" from Pumpkinhead it reminded me of a line from Back to the Future.

    First of all, what does that first sentence mean? I've never heard that expression.

    Secondly, yes I did expect some sort of communication expressly for the fans. It is a Fan Newsletter. Even a, "hope you are as excited as we are" or a quote from a band member saying he hopes to see us there. Maybe an allusion to upcoming giveaways, contests, even asking for input.

    It makes sense if they're going to bother putting out a newsletter in the first place. Otherwise, why not leave things status quo and have the official website serve as the "voice" of the band?

    BAD, BAD, BAD marketing...

    Here take mine, I'm done reading it:


    [Classic Van Logo Goes Here]

    VAN HALEN AND DAVID LEE ROTH ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR



    HISTORIC CONCERT TOUR MARKS FIRST OF ITS KIND

    FOR VAN HALEN IN 22 YEARS





    LOS ANGELES, CA -- August 13, 2007 Beginning this September, in what promises to be the most exciting live tour this year, Van Halen will embark on a national concert tour throughout the U.S. and Canada with its original lead singer David Lee Roth for the first time in 22 years.



    Considered by fans and media alike as one of the most highly anticipated tours in rock and roll history, Roth, guitarist Eddie Van Halen and drummer Alex Van Halen will perform with Eddie's son, Wolfgang who joins the line-up as the band's bass player. Van Halen and Roth have not performed or recorded together since 1984's classic multi-platinum album "1984" and subsequent tour, making this tour truly a historic event.



    25 dates in all were announced today for the tour which is slated for a September 27th kick-off in Charlotte, North Carolina. Tickets for select dates on the tour go on sale beginning on Saturday, August 18th and are available on http://www.LiveNation.com. A complete list of confirmed dates is attached. The Van Halen tour is being produced by Live Nation. Individuals who have the Citi® / AAdvantage® card, the official credit card of the tour, will be offered access to purchase preferred seats to all U.S. shows.



    Fans can enjoy the ultimate Van Halen experience including concert pre-show parties, backstage access, premium seating and more. For additional details go to http://www.iloveallaccess.com.



    Fans are encouraged to also check in at http://www.van-halen.com/ or http://www.davidleeroth.com/ for additional information.


    Van Halen remains one of the most important and influential bands of all time. Formed in Los Angeles in 1974, the band quickly won a loyal hometown fan base with their electrifying live shows. From the moment they released their self-titled 1978 debut album, Van Halen shook the foundations of rock, thanks largely to Roth's peerless showmanship, Eddie Van Halen's revolutionary guitar virtuosity and their songwriting abilities. It changed rock music forever.

    The band's first album proved one of the biggest selling rock debuts, with key tracks like "Eruption," "Running with the Devil," "Jamie's Cryin'," "You Really Got Me" and "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" leading the way. The next year, the band followed up with "Van Halen II," which included the hit "Dance the Night Away."

    Subsequent albums like "Women and Children First" (1980), "Fair Warning" (1981) and "Diver Down" (1982), along with worldwide touring, solidified the band's reputation for innovative and unparalleled live performances. Classic Van Halen tracks from the early 80's include "Everybody Wants Some," "Unchained", "And The Cradle Will Rock", "Beautiful Girls", "Mean Street" and "Somebody Get Me A Doctor" just to name a few.

    With their sixth album, released in, and titled "1984", Van Halen rose to stratospheric heights. Recorded at Eddie Van Halen's 5150 Studios, the multi-platinum smash yielded one of Van Halen's signature hits, "Jump," which remained #1 on the Billboard charts for an astounding five weeks straight. Other hits from the album include "Panama," "Hot For Teacher" and "I'll Wait."



    The band's record of achievement is hard to top. Presented with two Diamond Award RIAA Certified Status' for their albums "Van Halen" and "1984", Van Halen joins an elite short list of two time Diamond Award honorees in the history of the music industry. The Diamond Award is presented to an artist for album sales of 10 million or more units. They are also in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most #1 hits on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart than any other band in history.



    Inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame in March of this year, Van Halen has produced a treasured body of work that fans will admire for decades to come.
