    Default TMZ Reports - Shows Cancelled Due to "Burnout"

    http://www.tmz.com/2012/05/18/van-ha...ur-burned-out/

    Even rockstars can get tired ... and TMZ has learned that's exactly why Van Halen decided to postpone 31 upcoming concert dates.

    Sources close to the band tell us ... the guys felt like the current schedule was "too much, too fast" ... and they were "losing their focus."

    One source tells us, "They're simply burned out" ... adding, "They want to make sure their concerts are not a routine ... they want every performance to be special."

    We're told the guys want to take some time to "re-charge their engines" ... so they can rock all 31 cities the way Van Halen fans expect to be rocked.

    As for rumors that Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth are feuding ... we're told "It's total B.S."

    Shouldn't the word cancelled be changed to postponed in the title though? We don't want to get anyones panties bunched up in a waad.

    Thanks Mike! You might not like me as much knowing I'm a Les Habitants fan right down to my tattoo when I'm sure you are a Maple Leafs fan! My father was born in Toronto and he grew up a Red Wings and Gordie Howe fan. We fight all the time over this! : )

    "the current schedule was "too much, too fast"


    I'm a little surprised, especially with their DAY ON / DAY OFF schedule.

    ... but hey, whatever makes it happen for them is alright with me.

    Didn't these guys just get off a five year hiatus? If everyone is healthy then this is bullshit. I don't care how old these fuckers are, the fans DESERVE for them to rock til they drop.

    I've read from some that Dave has been struggling vocally. I'm pretty sure Sam WANTS things to fall apart. Of course I understand that the media was probably quick to throw a mic at him to get his reaction... But Sam is smart enough to know what is going on with that type of thing. He seems quite content to play it up. That's not surprising. Sam will take any hype he can get. Being the bland rock star that he is, I think he really needs it.

    Van Halen still has 15 dates left on the originally scheduled tor happened to all the new orleans date. If the band was fighting they would cancel it all together. Pure speculation by sammy. At least a band is getting its name out in the press. When the tour starts again , there will be more interest in my opinion.

    I respectfully disagree. Sammy is speculating. He hasn't toured with VH since 2004. He makes a lot of assumptions, based on his past experience. Obviously his time and his experience with Van Halen is valid. But how can he know all the details of what's going on TODAY?

    I used to love Sammy. At the 2004 tour I was lucky enough to get front row as part of the VIP package. I threw Sammy my "Ed work shirt" on stage, he wore it on stage for 1/2 song, signed it, and then gave it back to me. I will NEVER forget that experience.

    But I just think he is ruining his image by continuing to talk about Van Halen, like he was jilted in a messy divorce. Sam has his band and Ed has his. And I appreciate how Ed and Al have been quiet about Sam and not getting into mud slinging.

    I keep losing respect for Sammy the more he comments about VH. Just my 2 cents...
