    VAN HALEN TOUR NEWS AND NEW COMPILATION PLANNED:
    Ok, an exclusive Van Halen update for you today...gotta love that!
    I have said all along I would print confirmed news here when available, so here is the very latest up to date (as of today) information.
    There is already a list of 17 Van Halen tour dates that was posted online over the weekend. I won't print the list, as my source has an update. Apparently the whole tour is yet to be confirmed 100% and those dates leaked are merely a proposed itinerary/routing that is no longer valid.
    I'm told the only dates on that list that have validity at the moment are the late April dates at The Pearl at The Palms Casino, Las Vegas (April 27 and 28). I'm told there is a good chance those dates will happen but the proper tour is now likely to start later than the other May dates listed.

    There is also talk of - believe it or not - yet another compilation from the band. Yes, that seems correct. I talked to my source at Rhino Records today about the proposed compilation, described at one online store as Van Halen - Best Of 1978-1984.
    So I asked - is this a planned compilation? My source states "There is more truth to that than not.". Upon further prompting, I'm told that there are plans for a new compilation concentrating solely on the David Lee Roth years and the situation is currently "nothing firm...but something should come of this...". In closing, my source says the title is not yet decided, but definitely will have a little more character than just Best Of 1978-1984."
    I couldn't hang up without asking about a long overdue Van Halen box set. The reply - "Hopefully one day..."
    Before anyone asks....this compilation will feature no new material and I'm sticking to my long held position that there is still no new material with David Lee Roth planned at all.

    I am also of the opinion that there will be no press release this week...

    Knowing Van Halen there won't be a press release, here's hoping that a box set will come to fruition.

    great another box set,yaa
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Very interesting.

    As a hardcore fan who has purchased everything VH has ever put out, this is an insult to us the fans. I certainly will not purchase anything from these guys unless it is a CD full of new material. I've got enough copies of RWTD and ATBL etc.

    If the tour starts later in the year, could it be that they are waiting for Teen Wolf's summer vacation?

    I would be willing to bet the average person has a better chance at getting classified info from the Pentagon than anything out of VH.

    no news again
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    I'm not buying it, that's for sure. I'm only going to a show if I can get cheap tickets. I'm not grabbing my ankles for Ed.

    I will not buy this best of bullshit, but a box set with some tasty unreleased stuff would be great. Doesn't claim he has mountains of material for about 100 records??

    bosey bosey bop... zipity bop ditty box set...

    a box set has been talked about for so long it won't happen till much later... besides, we can find most of the unreleased stuff on jamtothis...

    if they're going to release a dave-centric best of, it should have at least 2 to 3 new songs on it...

    better yet, why don't they just release a concert cd/double-cd of dave era material? or a cd/dvd concert release? THAT would sell a lot better than yet another best of...

    How many CDs can they put Panama and Jump on? I already have it on 4 non-bootleg disks!
