    Default Should they just cancel the whole tour?

    There will be a LOT of people getting refunds for this next round of postponements, and I doubt very many of them will have much faith in Van Halen to re-purchase tickets for the rescheduled shows. I am sure that the tour promoters have lost faith in the band also. They are obviously going to lose millions of dollars on the recent cancellations/postponements.

    I'll probably be getting my refund tomorrow. With the current state of Van Halen, I doubt I will re-purchase them. This is the second time Saint Louis has been cancelled on this tour. Fuck it.

    What do you think? Should they just scrap the whole tour?

    Should they cancel? Absolutely!

    Will they? I'm not sure. Maybe they'll just keep postponing

    in a way they should just cancel if thats the case....I dont want to be sitting here with my tickets for months if they keep dicking around the fans last minute...if its cancelled, say so so we can get our refunds..

    but im hesitant to right now when it might happen and ive already poured so much $$ into it..

    i just want Ed to get better, the tour doesn't matter at this point. But I don't know enough about what's going on to say either way if the tour should be cancelled.

    I'm getting the feeling it's already cancelled and Andrew's post just minutes ago in another thread makes me feel even more so that the tour will be cancelled; especially after they find a way out of the TigerJam.

    So if Ed were to TRULY get healthy, you think fans will actually be patient enough to wait potentially a YEAR to hold on to their tickets?

    I HIGHLY doubt that.

    It should have never started until Ed was healthy.

    But I guess there was too much money at stake to care about that.

    I don't. We've had three new tunes in ten years. Underestimating the gluttony for punishment that persists in the average Van Halen fan is something I personally have never been able to do.

    Sadly, I don't think Ed will ever be healthy. I really don't.

    I think he functions with it the best he can and that some days are better than others, but I just don't think he really wants to get clean.

    I also think once the tour ends and he has no more responsibilities things could get a whole lot worse.

    That's the first thing I thought of when I saw that, too.
