    I know that everyone and their brother will rush to call me a liar and say I have no credibility whatsoever, etc. But let's face it, no one here has any credibility because we're all anonymous. So you can believe this or not, but I am legit. I work for a company that is doing promotional work for firms handling the upcoming Van Halen tour. Yes, it is happening, regardless of what you've heard here and elsewhere. I can't reveal my identity due to the fact that we all had to sign confidentiality agreements with the band's management and with Warner Brothers. I'm risking my job even posting this information here! That said, here goes! My team leader, who by the way is the company owner's brother-in-law, got this information from an individual he knows who works in public relations at Warner Brothers. He says, "Yes, a tour is in the works. And yes, Roth IS the singer. These dates are tentative and are subject to change. PLEASE don't tell anyone where you got this, and thanks for, well you know!" That's a direct quote from the email message my boss got from this guy. I can't tell you any names, please don't ask. Now you're asking yourself, Why the hell is this guy posting this if he could lose his job over it? To put it simply, I'm a die-hard Van Halen fan who's been with the band since '78 and I'm tired of certain people saying it's never gonna happen. IT IS HAPPENING! Like I said, you can believe me or not, but I will be proven correct. Here are the dates:

    05/07/01-Orlando,FL
    05/08/01-Tampa, FL

    No tour dates in Washington, Oregon, or California? You've got to be kidding me.

    I sincerely hope this really is legit. I'll be the first one to buy you a drink if it is!
    I know you said you can't give out any names or anything like that, but is that all the dates he had? What about the rest of North America and the World? I'm going to take all of this with a very big grain of salt, we've been burned so many times before!

    I wondered the same thing. The theory around here is that these are only dates for a partial tour and that more will be added later. I don't really know, though. The message that my boss got didn't mention it. I'll try to find out and post when I do. And yes, I'll say it again, I AM LEGIT!

I work for a company that is doing promotional work for firms handling the upcoming Van Halen tour.and what's the name of the company, for the record? i'm sure they're not gonna find you and fire you because you released the name of the company, since i can bet that your name isn't igotblistersonmyfingers. i'm curious as to knowing the name of the firm... I can't reveal my identity due to the fact that we all had to sign confidentiality agreements with the band's management and with Warner Brothers. I'm risking my job even posting this information here! i understand that, but like i said above, what's the firm? and, all the phonies also had to sign agreements. why whould we think you are legit? what do you have that all the phonies don't? not proof. That said, here goes! My team leader, who by the way is the company owner's brother-in-law, got this information from an individual he knows who works in public relations at Warner Brothers.my uncle's neighbor's boyfriend's cousin's... Now you're asking yourself, Why the hell is this guy posting this if he could lose his job over it? To put it simply, I'm a die-hard Van Halen fan who's been with the band since '78 and I'm tired of certain people saying it's never gonna happen. IT IS HAPPENING!well, what did you think we'd think? we are all die hards like yourself who are tired of rumors just like this which have turned out to be false. yeah , i'm pretty sure it's happening too, but dontcha think that you were walking on a limb by coming here. pretty convenient this is your first post. if we knew you and you had credibility with us then we'd be more inclined to believe you, but you came in here with nothing. Like I said, you can believe me or not, but I will be proven correct. So, do your research, which I'm sure you will! good luck with that. i've already started my homework. if you turn out to be right, then i owe you an apology. if you're wrong, then you owe each and every one of us an apology. just so you know, the track record stands as you are more likely to be wrong than right. by alot. plus, you gave us tentative dates, so you basically gave yourself a scapegoat!

    anyway, with that outta the way, i'm hoping like hell that this happens, but look at the past. i'm thinking this summer too, but who the hell knows? plus, according to the list, they aren't coming to calgary, so i'm a little bitter about that.
    anyway, this should go to the mill...

    While that's good news for ole Vinnie V in Winnepeg, they better keep that Canadian tour heading west and get a date set in Edmonton for me and one in Calgary for my buddy Laner.

    More BS rumor's
    Im with Laner on this one. Name your company, if you are for real than you can name your company. How will they know who you are?
    What promo work are you doing? What firms are involved in the tour?

    Hey don't worry Glenn and laner, Van Halen will tour Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary when they add the west coast dates.

    If, this schedule is in fact real.

    I can't believe they're going to Quebec City and Winnipeg and not Ottawa. We have the Corel Centre !! How can Q.C and Winnipeg compete with that ?

    Again, I reiterate, if in fact, this schedule is real.

    COOL!! Boston gets 2 shows!!
    If this is legit that is.
    But its not because I just talked to my friend who works at the Fleetcenter's event office and he said Nothing has been booked yet only that inquiries were made awhile back about availability.

    Charleston SC??? Why would they play there when Greenville has been booking major acts at the BiLo Center since it opened ? No Charlotte appearance but they play in Atlanta ? Every time I've seen them , I've seen them twice, once in Atlanta and once in Charlotte. This seems kind of strange

    So, in theory, you could be wrong on EVERY single date and you'd have an "out" ???

    How convenient...

    And when confronted with the fact that there are no "supposed" dates in Washington or California you say it had you wondering, too. Nice save. LOL.
