Van Halen Cancels Postponed Tour Dates.

I’m amazed one leg of the tour even got completed considering the track record of Van Halen over the past two decades. The band had initially added a second leg of A Different Kind of Truth tour which is understandable as this was a reunion of sorts that had been long overdue and was quite successful I imagine. But then the announcement via Rolling Stone came that those tour dates were being postponed and according to Rolling Stone were because of the usual friction in the band. Now it appears that any dates after the June 26th gig are flat out cancelled. So if you had missed the band the first time and were ready to see them come around in maybe a different location then you’re out of luck. After the jump is the list of cancelled dates which I’m sure you’ll be able to get refunds.

July 7: Uncasville, Ct., Mohegan Sun Arena

I missed them in Oakland and wouldn’t have minded seeing them in Sacramento. But oh well. Frankly this is a shame regardless of why the shows got cancelled. This had the makings of one of the greatest rock comebacks at least in the modern era and it’s turning into the same old same old with Van Halen. If word gets out just what is going on with the band I’ll post something up of course.

  1. I love Van Halen. That being said, I can’t stand Diamond Dave. Sammy can outsing and outclass the guy ten out of ten times. I like the musical material better in the Dave era, however, Dave can’t and never could sing. I guess he did have that one high note that he doesn’t have any more. Sooooo……what I’m trying to say is. Bring Sammy and Micheal back!
