    Default MelodicRock was right about the tour.

    I just wanted to give props to Andrew (MelodicRock) for giving correct info about the Van Halen tour postponements/cancellations before they were officially announced. The day after he announced that the tour was going to be done with for the foreseeable future, the tour promoters announced that it would only be postponed for a week. Now after today's official announcement it seems as though there is going to be a much longer postponement of the tour.

    Some people gave Andrew a hard time about his initial report, but it seems now that it was much more correct than anyone realized at the time. Andrew does his best to give valid info on rock music-related happenings in a timely manner - usually before anyone else knows about it. I know he felt bad after hearing that his source may have been wrong, so I felt it would be a good idea to say that I, for one, appreciate your efforts to keep us informed Andrew.

    I also appreciate what Andrew does. A great service to fans of great rock bands.

    thanks andrew, as disappointing as this news is. get well, eddie!

    Most likely they cancelled it and then scrambled and thought Eddie could do it March 11th then figured to let him stay the full rehab...and postpone everything into May...

    but no one should say anything about Andrew!! one thing you learn is that in the Music world stuff changes like the wind blows! whats true today might not be tomorow...and so forth

    I'm starting to think Ed shouldn't have even started this tour. Don't get me wrong when I saw them at MSG they were good. But the guy seriously has major major problems to straighten out and going on the road a few months after getting out of rehab obviously wasn't the brightest idea. We're lucky the dude isn't dead.

    Hi folks,
    Thanks for the posts. This is one time I'd rather be wrong.

    I believe there is still a lot of damage control being attempted and if there is any chance of these dates happening, then of course everyone wants to see that happen.

    I'm not confident they will happen - especially after talking with a good mate of mine and Ed's this weekend.

    But time will tell I guess.

    Best regards,
    Andrew.

    No news is bad news, as always in the VH camp during the last 10 years. I wish all this could've been resolved outside of the public eye, for the dignity of the Van Halen name and legacy.

    I remember all the linkers saying "give him a break, he wants to play with his kid." Well, he did. And look what happened.

    Pathetic and sad.


    PS: By the way, I will CONTINUE my crusade to shame the editors of Guitar World for the repeated VH covers this year and propaganda/fluff pieces interviews. They have inside sources in the VH camp (Matt Bruck) and deliberately lied to their readers. Shame on them!

    You know i respect your work, but, did you just pop in to be a bit of a tease?

    Based on his post, I'd say it doesn't look good.

    Why did they reschedule after last week and why are they saying the postponed shows today will be rescheduled ?

    I guess that makes Valerie a liar. She said it was nothing and that EVH is fine. Maybe she was being optimistic. But I am really starting to wonder.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    At the end of her interview she said she "hopes the tour will restart on time." I took that as not be 100% returning on time (Mar 11th).
