    Default A Humble Prediction for VH's Immediate Future - Thoughts?

    My guesstimate is as follows:

    1. VH is done with U.S. dates for the rest of this year (note that Reno was pulled from Pollstar).
    2. There is a 75% chance they'll play Japan and Australia this year.
    3. If they play the Super Bowl halftime show, they'll announce another short U.S. tour the next day (or shortly thereafter), as most Super Bowl acts do in order to take advantage of the hype. If they don't play the Super Bowl, then the U.S portion of the tour is done and it was good while it lasted.

    Thoughts?

    I agree on number 1.
    On number two I think odds are higher

    One thing I have learned from these guys since 1984. Don't ever try to predict what they will do.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Today is Eddie's 3 year anniversary with Janie, he will go on a vacation, then come back, start rehearsal on different songs, then go to Japan, Australia, etc.
    Superbowl and new Tour.
    Maybe Wolf will get himself a new house and get ready to get married with his girlfriend. haha

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

    Japan and Australia later this year.

    Live DVD or some kind of special DVD package in early 2013 (maybe Wolfgang begins to open up the 5150 vaults, he hinted at it in the CNN interview for Father's Day). No Superbowl. Maybe some select dates or special appearances in North America or Europe.

    New music from VH in early 2014 (yes with Dave) supported by a different touring format/show. They will be 60 by that time and can't continue to do the traditional concert/tour the way they did in their younger years.

    More cool guitar gear from EVH Inc. The guy makes great stuff.

    Believe it or not, Van Halen really is back and Eddie still has lots of music left in him.

    This is the scenario I see. They seem to be getting along with Dave the best they have since the club days. Actually I'm quite excited for the future.

    I would love to see a late summer/early fall tour of the US postponed dates before heading to Japan, but ever since that USA Today interview, it sounds like a pipe dream at this point. Probably no make up dates until 2013.
