    Default Van Halen comments on reunion tour

    VAN HALEN Comment On Success Of Reunion Tour; Photo Gallery Available
    Posted on Thursday, June 05, 2008 at 12:44:30 EST


    VAN HALEN have issued the following update:

    Nearly a million fans journeyed from all over the world to witness the landmark Van Halen tour, which kicked-off in September of 2007 in Charlotte, NC and wrapped up June 2, 2008 in Grand Rapids, MI. Van Halen, featuring Eddie Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Alex Van Halen and Wolfgang Van Halen delivered their bombastic live assault performances to legions of loyal fans at 75 arena concerts throughout the US and Canada.

    Performing live with Roth for the first time in more than 23 years, Van Halen proved its timeless catalog of hits still packs the punch it did decades earlier. Each night, the band treated the capacity audiences to a dream set list of more than two hours of Van Halen gems plucked from their original era. Favorites including 'Jump', 'Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love', 'Panama' and more, received a jolt of vivacity and spirit.

    “We send our thanks to the countless new and lifetime fans that helped make this tour our most successful,” said Van Halen in a joint statement. “We also send special gratitude to the tireless efforts of the Van Halen touring crew, Live Nation and the media, as well as opening acts KY MANI MARLEY and RYAN SHAW,” the band went on to say.

    Now that the final bits of confetti have fallen, Van Halen has their sights set on bright horizons with exciting developments on the way.

    I am an eternal optimist with this band but exciting developments might mean that Wolfgang has passed his GED.

    Here is hoping they can put out some new material or at worst a DVD or live CD.

    Glad to see a statement. Janie is earning her paycheck this week.

    Somethings cooking... doesn't mean it will actually see the light of day, but it doesn't appear like they're done yet...

    Well I'd say that's very positive. In the meantime, I'll be crossing my fingers and toes.

    The good thing is that we've all conditioned ourselves to expect nothing from these guys so anything we may get in the near future is all a bonus. I'm encouraged that they actually finished the tour and finished on a good note, but I can't begin to predict what to expect from here on out.

    My God, they updated the site twice in one week, and Roth's name and image is still on there.

    Some cool images from the official site as well.

    My guess is they will take some time and regroup to write and record.

    I saw the band last week and there was no sign that they plan to be finished.

    Maybe a new album and tour by next summer and fall??

    and a live dvd this fall/winter.

    Well I've got everything crossed over here but then again, I'm still hoping for a reunion tour.

    It's nice that they thanked their hard-working roadies.

    You know, I vaguely remember Van Halen making statements like this in the past. Not of the same subject, but of similar wording and such. That leads me to believe nothing will happen.

    However...

    Damnit, I'm hopeful. I'm trying to be as realistic as possible because this band may or may not go by their word (and history tells us they won't). Thing is, I'm hoping that for once, this band surprises me. We shall see.

    Oh well.
