Van Halen just needs a break
Band has spent too long on the mean streets
But none of them made sense. Fighting? They can't stand each other, yet they'll work together for five more weeks? No. Low ticket sales? Continuing to tour would be like throwing good money after bad, so they'd pull the plug immediately as well. Besides, the tour is selling strongly. Health issues? Again, a five-week wait to deal with that makes no sense.
The truth? According to a source, the band is simply burned out after dozens of high-energy dates so far this year. This first leg ends in New Orleans on June 26 and the band is going to take some time off and regroup for the second leg. Sources couldn't promise any dates when the band would be back out, but the key at the moment is that the dates are "postponed," not "canceled."
So catch 'em while you can between now and June 26, or take your chances on the rest of the year.
LAME! RETIRE ALREADY, WASHED UP WANNA BEE`S, D LEE VOCAL TRACKS AREN`T FINISHED YET SO THEY HAVE TOO DELAY, LORD KNOWS THE MAN CAN`T SING LIKE HE USED TO!!!
They were a little interesting getting some songs in the old top 40 in the 1970's, but they aren't interesting any more. They have a few hits, but not a large catalogue of songs like Journey or Foreigner, so no one has missed them.
David Lee Roth was more interested in appearing to be a rock star than being a rock singer like those that came after such as Axl Rose. Add Sammy Hagar, and you just have a backup band with a singer. They were just an odd lot.
