    EXCLUSIVE: Van Halen Australian Tour For 2012
    Post by: Dave-O 17 August, 2011 - 9:00 AM



    This is the news we we want to here. The aborted Van Halen tour of Australia is back on the table for 2012.

    A week following the cancellation of Soundwave Revolution, which they were headlining, two promoters have gone in and spoken to Van Halen management and band saying 'we really want Van Halen here next year'.

    Triple M Music reporter Nui Te Koha told the Hot Breakfast fans should start gearing themselves up for shows early next year.

    "This will be an arena tour," he revealed. "Van Halen has got an album coming out really soon. Two promoters have gone in and said 'this Soundwave Revolution thing was a debacle. We want to tour the band and it will happen early next year'."

    Bring it on boys.

    Hopefully they'll get Limp Bizkit as the support band.

    So just to be clear, this new rumor is coming from Hot Breakfast, a morning radio show in Australia?

    Hot Breakfast is the New York Times of Australian morning radio shows, I'm told.

    This is the same Hot Breakfast show that reported that VH were being lined up to play at the 2011 AFL Grand Final, (which is like our Superbowl, but with no budget).

    Of course that won't be happening after all, but would have been so much better than Angry Anderson singing (very well) to a backing tape in 1991, or *shuddder* Irene Cara lip synching in 2006.

    Yes and this was the same guy that said VH were part of SOUNDWAVE about 2 months before it was announced.

    I very much believe the tour plan Van Halen wants to follow this time around is kind of similar to the '98 tour, in that they play a few shows in Australia and perhaps Japan in early Spring 2012 before coming back to North America for late Spring through early Summer before hitting the UK/Europe in late July/August and coming back for more dates in NA in the Fall.

    This would be awesome, obviously. Arena tour of Oz, no standing around for hours in a field watching teenage metal bands. Man, I hope this works out.

    It will make a ton of VH fans who had no intentions of going to a festival to see them very happy.

    This was also the same Hot Breakfast that reported Aerosmith as the second headliner,VH tour of OZ in late 2010 when the Eagles were here.

    Sorry for 'shouting' guys'n'gals.
    "What is understood, need not be discussed"
    It's 5150 time AGAIN!
    From the opening sound...akin to a WWII bomber rolling overhead... through to 26 1/2 years later there has been barely a misstep by the man who (to use a cliche) redefined the way the guitar was to be played and the incredible sounds it could make. For all new chapters beyond this point it is all cherries and cream.
    My Van Halen shows - 17/4/98 .......and April 20th 2013 ANZ Olympic Stadium Sydney - Stone Music Festival
    (and still envious of every other attendee of a 'World Tour' that wasn't a WORLD TOUR!!!)

    Feb 18 2013 - "Yesss!!! - They're coming to Australia" My reaction to seeing the headline on VHND. Wife's reaction (rolling her eyes) "I wish he would get so animated about our anniversary today!!"

    90 minutes of AWESOME rock'n'roll. Loved every minute of it.

    Sorry but you should believe it when you actually see them on stage in front of your naked steaming eyes.
