One Van Halen lyric goes "Come on baby, finish what you started." Let's hope the band follows its own advice.
Concert promoters Live Nation have announced that Eddie, Alex and David Lee Roth have postponed as many as 30 dates, including the July 9 concert in Hampton.
No explanation was offered.
"The Van Halen show at Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia will be temporarily postponed," read a short statement. "Future dates to be announced. Refunds are available at point of purchase."
The band was supposed to tour through the summer in support of "A Different Kind of Truth," the Roth-Van Halen lineup's first album together in 26 years.
" ... Already speculation has surfaced that long-simmering tensions between the bandmates have reached a boiling point," eonline.com reported.A story on the Rolling Stone website quotes unnamed sources who say the band is fighting.
According to the band's website, Van Halen will finish out the remainder of the shows scheduled for next month, including a June 26 New Orleans date. But all concerts set for July through September have been postponed.
