    Default European Tour 2012

    I know that as a fanbase, we have become accustomed to reading the tea-leaves regarding what our favorite band will do in the future; however, if this isn't the best news I've heard for VH's European fans in many years..!

    From Robert "Kool" Bell, of Kool & the Gang: “Now there’s talk of us going to Europe with Van Halen this summer."

    SOURCE:
    bostonherald.com/entertainment/music/general/view/20220309kool_addition_to_vh_tour/

    My take on this is that Van Halen is in the process of, or has already booked European dates... After all, why would VH discuss it with "Kool" at all unless Europe was likely going to happen..?

    It is definitely going to happen. Big, huge, outdoor European music festivals in July and August. And these festivals are always pro-shot. Even if they are never officially released as a DVD, we will be getting some pro-shot footage into circulation.

    All of these festivals have their lineups for this year... so if it happens it'll definitely be at arenas!

    Just reading the tea leaves. The Cool & The Gang quote, the fact that they went to Europe during their last three major tours supporting new albums in 98, 95, and 93 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Halen_concert_tours), the fact that they almost went to Australia last summer, the fact that the album sold overseas - I'd be very surprised if they kept to North America only and didn't cross the pond.

    The major festivals are locked out already and i cant see KATG playing metal festivals without getting bombed by bottles of piss. Sounds like Arenas.

    Most likely you are right but you have to remember that kool and the gang don't even play all the shows with vh now so maybe they do the festivals without kool and the gang and do arena shows with them.
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    Sonisphere has a spot free before Kiss, there has been a rumour going around for about a month or so that VH may fill it. I highly doubt it though.
    It would be great to see them do a full UK/European tour, I've seen them every time since Donnington '84 and traveled to the US a couple of times and seen them there too. I prefer the UK crowds though

    This is probably a pipe-dream but do you think, IF they do arenas, they might offer some sort of 'meet and greet' package for the long-suffering UK / European fans?
