Van Halen Hint at 2013 Tour -
After their recent cancellation debacle, which saw the hard rock
icons calling off a number of shows in North America, the band have
now hinted at more US tour dates as well as a Japanese leg for
In a recent interview with USA Today (via UltimateClassicRock) the
father and son pairing of Eddie Van Halen & Wolfgang disclosed
that they had 'bitten off more than they could chew' with regards
to the touring the new album, he said:
"This record took a lot out of us. And we went on tour earlier
than we wanted to so we could play Madison Square Garden, and that
threw the schedule out of whack."
The band will have successfully completed more than 40 gigs on
this current leg, and "a lot of the cancelled dates were in cities
we already played," he said.
"So in November, we'll hit Japan, and in the new year, we'll
possibly do something special, but I can't talk about it."
