    Default VH may have cancelled Soundwave shows.

    http://www.triplem.com.au/sydney/mus...0928-ellb.html

    Van Halen will release their long-awaited new album next year.

    Triple M music reporter Nui Te Koha told the Hot Breakfast this morning that they've split from Warners after three decades and are set to unleash their first album since 1998's Van Halen III.

    "They've signed to Sony Columbia (the same label as AC/DC) and the album is almost ready to go. It will be out early next year," he said.

    "This backs claims that Van Halen were not ready for the Soundwave shows they were supposed to play in September. It also backs the claims that they may have cancelled the shows themselves."

    Top news about the new album. And great to see Diamond David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen back together and releasing new material. This will be the band's first album with Diamond Dave since 1984.

    I'm sure they did cancel the shows. They all wanted to be in America so they could pick up the version of Chickenfoot III with the hidden track as soon as it was released.

    If they did cancel then I'm extremely pissed off at them. Not because I didn't get to see them, but because this has seriously harmed the reputation of the Soundwave Festivals - Australia's only metal festival.

    Apparently the promoters are now struggling to get bands signed up for the next festival due to fear of cancellations. Thanks a fucking lot Van Halen, bunch of fucking tools (if this rumour is true of course, if not please ignore my comments).

    So this reporter brings nothing new except speculation.

    Move along.

    If they did cancel and ruin the whole tour, you better believe the other bands on the bill and the promoter, who had no problem bashing VH before the cancellation, would be screaming at VH through the press and blaming them for everything. Instead, everyone said there was another headliner that backed out (Aerosmith)---another headliner that was needed because ticket sales were slagging.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    This is the problem with reporters is they will say something in a way like they are in the know when they really aren't. We probably know more than it does.

    We could take this as a confirmed release date and record signing. Or it could just be a reporter just pretending to be in the know. I would say the latter.

    I don't believe that VH did cancel - the loud mouth promoter would've definitely had slagged them off via Twitter if that was the case. VH certainly didn't help things though - did almost nothing to help promote the show and increase sales. They must be too rich to care.
