Van Halen have postponed over 30 dates on their 2012 North American tour, beginning with their show scheduled for July 7 at Uncasville, Ct. and ending with their planned Sept. 25 performance in Milwaukee.

No reason or official statement has been given for these postponements, nor is there any word on when the rescheduled dates might be announced. The timing seems odd, as the band announced earlier this week they were extending the tour with eight new shows.

A press release from the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, where the band was scheduled to perform in September simply reads: “The Van Halen show at EnergySolutions Arena Tuesday, September 4th has been temporarily postponed. Future dates to be announced.”

The band will apparently still be performing throughout May and June, with their next show scheduled for Saturday, May 19 in St. Paul, Minn, followed by 13 more dates culminating on June 26 in New Orleans. A complete schedule of both postponed and still-scheduled Van Halen concerts follows below.

Ugh! Let the speculation begin.

At least I won't feel like I am missing anything since I can't be at the Joe this summer. Glad I caught it once.

Eddie realized that slowly, over the last few tour dates, that he was being pushed closer and closer to fulfilling his deeply repressed desire to strangle David Lee Roth in his sleep...

a yup

I jumped on this after reading about Eddie's cancer returning last year figuring
this may be the last time I'd get a chance.

I did wonder that the new dates start pretty quickly after the original dates
and no time off for rest

Since it says Postponed and form what else I am hearing that every thing is ok
within the band, I'll gladly wait

I think it's because all the groupies showing up backstage are wearing Mom jeans.

Matt Bruck, a very close friend of EVH's, stated on his face book page that everything is fine within the band and that the postponement is because the band, management, and Live Nation, are reshuffling the dates and they will be announced soon. Also, somebody on VHlinks who has contacts at Live Nation confirmed this is indeed the case. The tour is selling very well and there's apparently now talk of touring Europe for a short stint as well.

With no official word from the Van Halen camp about the reasons behind yesterday’s sudden postponement of over 30 dates on their summer 2012 tour schedule, speculation has set in, some of it focused on the reportedly testy relationship between David Lee Roth and his bandmates.

Rolling Stone quotes a tour insider as saying that the band members “hate each other,” with another stating that, “The band is arguing like mad. They are fighting.” After ruling the rock world together for much of the late-’70s and early-’80s, the original members of Van Halen famously spent much of the last three decades apart, trading occasional barbs via the press (and dueling album titles) before reuniting sans bassist Michael Anthony for a highly successful tour in 2007.

The band has been on the road since February in support of their first album with Roth in 28 years, ‘A Different Kind of Truth.’ Just last week they added several new dates to their summer tour plans, making the news from yesterday all the more puzzling. (Our current favorite theory involves “a terrible case of hiccups.“)

In one of his few recent interviews in support of the new album and tour, Roth spoke highly of his bandmate, guitar wizard Eddie Van Halen, telling the Los Angeles Times, “There’s an old Russian saying: ‘There’s no more lines in that guy’s stomach.’ It means somebody got fat and slow. There are still a lot of lines in Eddie’s stomach.”

Van Halen returned the favor last month in Esquire, declaring of Roth, “We never really hated each other. I think the press blew that out of proportion… if we argued — you know, now it’s always about, about the structure of a song. It’s never personal. We’ve never on a personal level not gotten along.”

The latest at vhlinks mentions that the supposed comments from Matt Bruck are not legit and he never made them.....

Somehow I doubt the truth will come out. Everyone always has an opinion.

In the end, it's a real bummer for the fans. And if there is not a real good reason, I think "next time" there will be a lot more empty seats.

A few people at vhlinks have commented that they received emails from Live Nation indicating that the dates will be rescheduled. Some are speculating that EVH's cancer has returned yet again.....If true, it'd be the third time according to his recent Esquire interview.

I had thought of that. Sure hope that is not the case.
