    Default VH are playing Australia in 2013

    From Adelaide Now website...

    http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/entert...-1226579471127

    BILLY Joel and Van Halen will headline a surprise addition to the Australian festival calendar inspired by the '70s cult biker film Stone.

    The vintage rockers will perform at the inaugural Stone Music Festival at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium over the April 20 and 21 weekend.

    It will be a one-off event with hard rock supergroup Kings Of Chaos, Richie Ramone, Buckcherry, Lifehouse and Illumination Road also confirmed for the bill.

    Major Australian rock acts, including some reunited 90s chart-toppers, are also expected to be named on the bill in the lead-up to tickets going on sale on Thursday.

    Joel is renowned for his love of motorcycles which puts him in the frame for the event while Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth said the film had been discovered in America via “cinephiles” like Quentin Tarantino.

    Van Halen have been courted by several Australian promoters to tour here in recent years.

    The wonderfully eccentric Lee Roth, who lives in Tokyo with his Australian cattle dog Russell, said he had been encouraging his bandmates to tour outside of America.

    “The Van Halens are watching from afar and if anything are just becoming aware that maybe he’s onto something,” Lee Roth said.

    He said he was looking to “sharing some strong drink and bulls… stories” with their co-headliner Joel.

    The promoters have also joined forces with fans of the 1974 film to recreate The Stone Run, a motorcycle ride down the F3 freeway which was held in 1999 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie.

    Back then, about 34,000 mates and movie fans took part.

    A single day ticket for the festival starts at $179 and a weekend pass at $319 and go on sale from noon on Thursday.

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Fuckin' Dave knew this was coming so I'm thinking that the RS interview was a calculated move. So, does Mikey's comment fit in to all this? If so, we're in for a ride, folks. Let's hope it's all good.

    That's 9 weeks from now. Zero chance this happens, IMO.

    Hope I'm wrong though.

    I realize that Billy Joel and VH dont really overlap, but there has bound to be much respect between the two based on their accomplishments. Fan of Billy Joel or not, there's no denying how talented that dude is. Van Halen could do a lot worse in terms of sharing a bill with someone

    No shit, dude. Just take a listen to "Songs In The Attic" for proof.

    This is great news if its actually true...but what's with the headline David Lee Roth and Billy Joel to headline Stone Music Festival.
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    I'll wait until something formal is announced.

    And yeah . . . Billy Joel is a very talented singer and songwriter.

    I would imagine its because the interview spoke with Dave, so he or she just used Dave's name. I must admit, it through me too when I first read it.

    Hopefully, some other dates will appear through out the week.

    I guess we'll see some enough.

    Didn't Billy Joel want Eddie to produce one of his albums in the late 80's or early 90's?

    Van Halen's track record of playing festivals lately has been about as good as a gay man's chances of picking up at a biker bar.
