    You may just be hearing about this now, but those shows have been cancelled for a long time.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I think he means they were always cancelled ever since the first news of this, they were just initially called "postponed" to sound better.

    Yes, it was probably planned all along to call them postponed while the tour was still on, but changed to being officially cancelled after the 6/26 New Orleans show. Too bad that the parties responsible couldn't have prevented those extra dates from being announced in the first place, as it only fuels the rumor mill to cancel them. I feel bad for the people who held off until that leg was announced, or people in cities like Cleveland which were not yet visited. It's a minor speed bump in an otherwise stellar year for the band.

    Hope they'll come to Europe next year instead of playing each minor city in the US.

    This whole "postponement/cancellations" thing reeks of something. Either bad management decisions (scheduling) to begin with or possibly DLR having throat problems i.e. polyp needing removal. Why do you suddenly throw on the brakes during a tour? It's all very suspect imo. I ain't buying that "We're too tired" crap either.

    Dave has been the weak link this tour with his voice problems. It would make sense if he did have something wrong. Maybe he's having surgery during the downtime and needs that time to heal. Just a thought.

    Possibly, but Dave was out doing county fair grandstand dates opening up for demolition derbies when things got really bad, as i see it he'd go up there as a mute and do sign language if he had to rather than be the guy who forced the cancellation of one of these good paying gigs. I hope it's not a health issue for any of them, and rather just they got a more lucrative offer going international in the Fall and realized they couldn't do both. But you'll never really know.

    Ps. Any further explanation would just be dissected with disdain by haters so I'm not a person critical that they somehow owe me a more thorough explanation.

    I respectfully disagree. For the most part they've already covered the US. The second round would have just had them revisiting markets they'd already been in and the lackluster sales/willingness of fans to shell out more money was apparent after the initial round of ticket sales. No choice but to pull the plug. They just aren't as popular as they used to be.

    Plus they added Japan now. When I saw that announcement I worried less about a health issue or a problem within the band.

    I agree with this. They may have seen a downward trend in ticket sales and decided to spare themselves a disappointing second leg. I wasn't really planning on catching the show a 2nd time this summer. I might have ended up going, but wouldn't have jumped all over buying the tickets early like I did for the Atlanta show.

    I'm confused. When they were postponed and we all assumed cancelled, everyone here said relax, they're just catching their breath, Dave said so. Now that it's cancelled, it was cancelled the whole time.
    This is my signature saying someone (you choose) made Van Halen better so I can say "Deal with it".
