    Default VAN HALEN Tour Promoter Issues Statement - Mar. 3, 2008

    MTV.com reports that the reunited VAN HALEN have been forced to postpone four upcoming dates of their U.S. tour due to an unspecified medical condition affecting guitarist Eddie Van Halen. A statement issued by tour promoter Live Nation on Monday afternoon (March 3) explained that concerts in Dallas, Cincinnati, Baltimore and Raleigh, North Carolina, have been postponed and rescheduled for April.

    "According to Eddie Van Halen's physician, he is undergoing a battery of comprehensive medical tests to determine a defined diagnosis and recommended medical procedures," read the release.

    The March 3 show at American Airlines Arena in Dallas has been rescheduled for April 24; the March 5 show at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati has been moved to April 22; the March 7 show at RBC Center in Raleigh was shifted to April 13 and the March 9 show at 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore will now take place April 15, according to Pollstar.

    Fans should retain their tickets as they will be honored at the rescheduled concerts or ticket refunds will be issued at the original point of purchase.

    The Live Nation spokesperson said the tour is expected to pick up the previously scheduled dates beginning on March 11 in Charlottesville, Virginia, and, for now, no other dates have been affected.

    Yeah, let's hope Ed gets better from whatever he's sick from.

    And hope for VAN HALEN to return to the stage as scheduled.

    They should, but they won't. They'll probably scream at Eddie for not getting normal treatment the first time around, or for continuing smoking, or not touring sooner, etc.

    There are a lot of selfish, stupid people here at the links.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Why? Just because the Van Halen PR machine doesn't deign to actually relate relevant information to their paying fans, forcing them to speculate (plausibly, I might add) as to what's going on? If this was during one of the extended "down times" that the band has had, then there is no expectations of disclosure, but when there are paying customers waiting to find out what to do, there is no excuse for the wall of silence. So if it makes you feel better to judge those who have speculated, good for you.

    If it is cancer than I think most people here will feel sorry for Eddie, but I doubt that anyone will be willing to take the blame for the Van Halen management's lack of communicating with their fans.

    Nice.

    Eddie's physician speaks fluent bullshit.
    It would be intriguing to know who is making the decisions for Van Halen now.
    The constant stream of extremley limited press availability, by anyone, combined with the occasional bit of fluff and bull, from everyone makes me wonder...
    Is this a defined strategy that makes perfect sense to someone?
    Or, are they truly just making this up as they go?

    For some reason it all brings to mind an old quote from Hunter S. Thompson, which i think i'll ad to my sig.

    "The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic
    hallway where theives and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.
    There's also a negative side."
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
    -H.S.T

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis
