    Default Strange aussie rumor in 98'

    I was wondering if anyones heard this rumor in around jan. 1998, and if there was any truth in it. I remember a broadcast on aussie radio that Van Halen were doing some regional cities on their aussie tour. I remember Woolengong being mentioned, and Albury aswell. It sounds laughable, but I did hear this, although I could'nt imagine them doing it. I guess it fell through, because they were'nt big enough cities.

    I knew about Newcastle and Launceston. I've got a TV report on video from Launceston and a interview from "A Current affair". But, according to this station, Woolengong, Albury, and I think it was Townsville were proposed aswell.

    For an international act that was actually a pretty decent range of shows - many acts dont venture outside of the bigger east coast cities - sydney/melbourne/brisbane

    I honestly did not know that they'd canceled so many shows. Nearly the entire month of June was lost to Alex's injury, in addition to two attempts at Puerto Rico and three shows in Brazil.
