    Default Will they finally come to Europe?

    I'm glad to see Van Halen back, and even more exciting is the fact that they've gone back to the stripped down stage design - just a stage with the four bandmates playing on it, no big figure of 8 catwalks or any of that nonsense.

    What I hope this means is that they can come and do a few European shows. I heard that one of the problems with the coming to Europe (especially the UK) was that they had so much equipment, complicated stage and light design, that they wouldn't be able to put on shows over here. Now that they've gone a bit native, I'd hope they can at least do some arenas over here.
    If I told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what I've gone through over the last 20 odd years, what it took to finally get where I am, people just wouldn't fucking believe it. So it's pointless. I now realize that I can't change people's minds, and I really don't want to or need to try. I'm at peace with it, and that's all that matters. - Edward Van Halen

    Default europe?

    Let's hope they do. With Van Halen you never know, they have ignored Europe & the rest of the world before.

    On the big screen back to the stage there often passes the "World Tour 2012" writing... Hope they consider Europe part of the world.

    I doubt it. They never do world tours, and at 50+... why start now?

    Would love to be proven wrong

    That was always a fucking lame excuse! I mean, what would be so special about VHs stage that couldn't be done in Europe? Like Europes a frigging third world country!
    If Rammstein and U2 can play here, I'm pretty sure it's good enough for VH!

    That excuse always made me angry!

    Dude you are almost making Cheddymon seem rational. That's saying a lot.

    KISS always play great shows here. Flames, smoke, sparkles, blood.
    By the way, VH don't want to tour here? Well, smaller market on their own.
    I'll buy the record and merchandising the day they announce European dates.

    That's called "North American Tour"
    Not even "American", as they won't go south.

    I doubt anyone knows for sure, at least here but I hope they do... and hope they hit Australia too, slowly but surely. These fans love VH just as much as us "spoiled" American VH fans. Even if it's a very limited amount of shows I hope they make it happen. ADKOT is fantastic, they guys are in great form. Dave has the hat..

    Their neglect of Europe was and is a huge mistake on their part.
