    Van Halen said no to headline Festival in Europe

    According to festival Director Rob van Trommelen of Arrow Rock Festival, Van Halen is not coming to his festival. Although VH was on the top of his wishlist, Van Halen stepped out of the talks and will not appear at the festival in June. Arrow rock is a major classic rock festival with a capacity crowd of 20-25.000. Former headliner were Aerosmith, Whitesnake and with them appearing, Scorpions, Queensryche, Def Leppard etc. A perfect macth for VH if you ask me. The article doesn't explain why it did not happen, but it clearly says Van Halen stepped out and declined this oppertunity

    To me it could mean 3 things:

    1. VH is not coming to Europe at all.
    2. VH is planning a normal tour and not a festival tour in Europe
    3. VH wil appear at other festivals in Europe

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    You may like or not but a and who playes only music created before 1984 and is of no importance with regard to creating new music, is nothing more than a classic rockband, same category as all others I mentioned before.

    Without a doubt VH music is much better than the rest, but that doesn't mean we have to forgot what the status is of this band

    Where we judge ohter bands, you can can do easily the same for VH

    It happened last year when they were first putting the reunion tour together. Van Halen were asked to appear at Monsters Of Rock in June (which had been resurrected in 2006) in the UK at the Milton Keynes Bowl but VH asked for too much money and the promoters couldn't afford it. Eventually the whole festival got cancelled.

    VH is hardly changing anything show to show, so I don't think they would agree to a festival and getting out of their comfort zone of using their stage, their arena set up, their starting time etc, almost regardless of location and money.

    And yes, I realize that for enough money you can get almost anyone to do almost anything...but I'm talking unless someone comes forward with crazy money.
