David Lee Roth posted a video this weekend explaining the
mysteriously postponed dates on Van Halen's tour.
Last Thursday, the band abruptly postponed all the tour dates
after their July 26th show in New Orleans, pulling more than 30
dates from their schedule including shows in Milwaukee, Detroit,
Cleveland, Salt Lake City and El Paso. They offered no explanation
for the postponement at the time.
Rolling Stone reported through sources close to the tour that
the reason for the cancellations were due to band members "aurguing
like mad" and even Sammy Hagar weighed in, telling The Associated
Press: "They're hard people to get along with, those brothers.
Otherwise I'd still be in the band.". Roth insists otherwise in the
video. "The band is getting along famously," he says, "better than
we have in quite some time."
The true cause for the disruption, he explains, is simply
"As usual, we bit off way more than we could chew when it came
to scheduling. The band is winning, but our schedule has been
sidelined for unnecessary roughness," he says. "We're gonna take a
break and we're gonna come all the way back around, because this
tour is gonna take about two years."
