    Look at the bottom of the article.


    http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/18/showbi...ned/index.html


    David Lee Roth walks offstage with the rest of the band (L-R) Alex Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen and Wolfgang Van Halen at the Van Halen press conference announcing their new tour at the Four Seasons Hotel on August 13, 2007 in Los Angeles, California
    (CNN) -- Classic rockers Van Halen on Thursday abruptly postponed more than 30 tour dates, following their June 26 concert in New Orleans, representative Anna Loynes said.

    No explanation was given, and there was no word on when the appearances might be made up.

    Thirteen shows, including Saturday's concert in St. Paul, Minnesota, will go on as scheduled.

    The band is on tour in support of its new album "A Different Kind of Truth" -- the first complete album with original lead singer David Lee Roth since the platinum-selling "1984," which was released on the last day of 1983.

    Van Halen, which formed in 1974, has a turbulent history.

    Roth left the band in 1985 after a falling-out with guitarist/founder Eddie Van Halen and was replaced by vocalist Sammy Hagar, who was with the band until 1996. Former Extreme vocalist Gary Cherone joined the band for 1998's Van Halen III -- the worst-selling album of the band's career.

    At different times, Eddie Van Halen has undergone treatment for alocoholism and cancer.

    The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007 and later that year announced a reunion tour with Roth again fronting the band. The band also has replaced original bassist Michael Anthony with Van Halen's son, Wolfgang. Several shows during the 2007-2008 tour were also postponed, but ultimately rescheduled.

    According to the Recording Industry Association of America, Van Halen has sold more than 56 million albums.

    Van Halen forums on the web lit up with the news, with some fretting the shows would never happen.

    "This isn't good," said one fan who goes by the handle bsbll4 on vhlinks.com, which bills itself as "Your Van Halen Internet resource guide."

    ED-A-HOLIC posted, "there is a BIG difference between CANCELLED and POSTPONED, I just hope it's not Eddie having to battle against Cancer again."

    Grrr someone beat me to it, congratulations ED-A-HOLIC!!! I really hope they don't postpone Oakland, I am traveling from Omaha, and will be spending a LOT of money that can't be refunded. When I saw them in 2008 that show had been postponed twice. Seeing this band is quite a gamble sometimes. Last tour I drove 5 hours before I decided to turn the radio on and the DJ said it was cancelled. Me and my friend just laughed our asses off for 20 minutes straight. Then we ate at a Red Lobster and drove home, yep we drove 5 hours for Red Lobster.

    You know, on second thought, after all the genius comments I've offered to this board over the last 8 years, CNN chooses "this is not good."

    Fuck me.

    At least they didn't use the "I think David Lee Roth is so hot in the chaps" quote you made...see, it could have been worse.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Well at least I wouldn't have been world-famous for making the mistake of calling them ass-less chaps. Because as we all know, all chaps are ass-less.

    Everyone grab a life jacket and hold on. There will be a new influx of Newbie Van Halen fans hitting the Links like a tsunami, and really teaching us old vets a thing or 2 about the band! Good times ahead!!

    But, positive exposure is good for the site!!

    Well at least it's a quote that was repeatable on national TV.

    Wow the Links must got some creds around here. Kewl.

    I really hope the postponed concerts are not for health issues, I'm crossing my fingers for a European Summer Tour instead.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Ive got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.
