    It was very clear.

    I posted it before in this same thread.

    It clearly states 2015.

    Ok. Well mid December is around the corner. Maybe DD should email this guy and see what's up because as it stands now...nobody's got a clue and the debut anniversary day is fast approaching.

    I do not believe VH can be THIS secretive. If so, they are the most powerful band in the biz or people are dealthy afraid of Ed's wrath.

    Ok I listened to the whole Van Helen catalog on Spotify over the past few days.
    I must have never listen to the whole VH III album before. I knew a couple of songs but that album is really bad!
    I mean REALLY bad.
    Most songs aren't even recognizable as Van Halen's sound.
    Maybe I have listened to it in the past and buried it in my mind because it was so bad!

    I have a clue.

    You are mistaken about VH being secretive lol. It's not that they're secretive. It's simply that they wait until last minute to do jack shit.

    But how can you do that in terms of booking venues. Wouldn't that info leak out?

    Eventually, but the common oversight here is that venues must be booked so far in advance. Some do, some don't. Lots of venues have dark nights even in their busy seasons often dependent on their sponsor sports team's schedules. But venues can be booked a year out or a month away. It's not like every arena in the country is booked 365 nights a year, and rarely are all 90 nights of summer booked either.

    You seem particularly curious about the availability of VH's schedule for a guy who's consistently insisted he isn't attending the pending tour no matter what.

Just calling it like I see it. I always appreciate everybody's input and rumors - even if they don't equate to anything notable happening. For Van Halen - this is all par for the course. And not that EVH cares, but without something new, even an EP or whatever - I don't see myself dropping any more $$$ at shows to see basically the same set-list I've seen in 2007, 2012, 2015. The shows were all fantastic and awesome experiences. I'm just kinda over it unless there is something new to promote. And I don't mean another greatest hits or re-masters of anything or striped guitars and amps. I have 1/1000th the resources of Van Halen, and I was able to put together a 4 song EP with artwork, write/record/produce and have it up on all the online distributors in just over a 3 month period. Granted, maybe it will only sell 10 copies, but its not THAT hard to do, even for some guys who just do it for fun.

    Some friends of mine back home in a podunk South Carolina town just made and released their own movie. Did it in under a year for "less than the cost of a used car", working their other fulltime jobs all the while. Getting good reviews and some noteriety and recognition. Where there's a will, there's a way.

    Where there isn't, there's whining and excuses. Not saying we're owed anything, just don't say nothing's happening because of x, y, and z.

    As for the rumours and their veracity? Called it early on. Throw literally every scenario at the wall and if/when one of them sticks, play it off as the sage prophet with the inside skinny. Sigh. Where was all the news that was supposed drop last St. Patrick's Day? The rest of the "verbatim" predictions? Whatever.

    No offense, but we should stop with the Snyde comments about this not being true. We have no idea what the facts were or are. We had someone that felt they had reliable information and they shared a rumor with the group, that blew up to bullshit sights reporting it as fact because they are too lazy to fact check, and a guy having his personal life fully invaded because why? He wanted to share some info
    It could have been true at one point and VH changed directions as they often have and do, but we shouldn’t beat up the guy cause it didn’t come to fruition

    Routing that tour must not be easy, if you're only counting on leftover "empty" nights not already chosen by other acts.

    And that's why their product usually feels thrown together last minute. Because it is.

    The idea of a tour in 2018 would be cool, but has anyone heard anything about new music?

    This is crazy: the band still has an incredible amount of pull and interest in Hollywood; look at how they rolled out ADKOT. Yet, with all of their relevance, they keep everything under wraps; no one hears a peep...I don't get it.

    If the band was set to release a new LP, how long would it take to get from a completed form, to printing, to distribution?
    "...as great a musician as Ed is, he really needs to be more prolific because we need more great music out there. There's a lot of bad music out there." - Sammy Hagar

    "...Some few hard rock bands transcended their time. VH ain't one of 'em, unfortunately. Coulda been. But wasn't. Too much clusterfuckery, too much hiatus, too much drama." - Van Squalen
