[Updated at 3:38 p.m. ET] Classic rockers Van Halen on Thursday abruptly postponed more than 30 tour dates, following their June 26 concert in New Orleans.
Contacted Friday for comment, a representative for the tour said that no other information was available. No explanation was given, and there was no word on when the appearances might be made up.
Thirteen shows, including Saturday's concert in St. Paul, Minnesota, will go on as scheduled.
The band is on tour in support of its new album "A Different Kind of Truth" - the first complete album with original lead singer David Lee Roth since the platinum-selling "1984," which was released on the last day of 1983.
letmie speculate...they made enough money...time to hit the islands...only a stone throw away from n'awlins...lol
A kangaroo kept getting out of his enclosure at the zoo. Knowing that he could hop high, the zoo officials put up a ten foot fence. He was out the next morning, just roaming around the zoo.
A twenty foot fence was put up. Again he go out.
When the fence was forty feet high, a camel in the next enclosure asked the kangaroo,
"How high do you think they'll go?"
The kangaroo said, "About a thousand feet, unless somebody locks the gate at night!"
Eddie and David Lee Roth were so much fun to watch on MTV; of course David was obnoxiously vain. ;)
Mary, weren't they fun to watch?
I agree with your opinion on DLR; if I have to venture a guess on why the concerts were canceled, I'd guess either DLR's ego or Eddie's ill health has something to do with it...I'd rather it be an ego problem, of course....
I though DLR was replaced?
Oopsy Didn't read the last paragraph. In that case... I'm on it! Any ticket scalpers in the house? ;) lol
Rush would never do this to their fans.
Except for that concert they cancelled in Edmonton about 25 years ago. I'm still cheesed off.
