Reunited rockers Van Halen have stunned fans by scrapping 30 dates on their summer tour without explanation.
The band has pulled the plug on all shows scheduled after a gig in New Orleans, Louisiana on 26 June, including stops in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Detroit, Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; and Salt Lake City, Utah.
Promoters have announced the cancellations to local media outlets, but the Hot for Teacher hitmakers have yet to offer full details or any plans to reschedule the shows.
Reports suggest the bandmates aren’t getting along, with one insider telling Eddie Van Halen, his son Wolfgang and brother Alex and singer David Lee Roth “hate each other,” adding, “The band is arguing like mad. They are fighting.”
Reports of poor ticket sales have been dismissed by local promoters who insist the shows are selling well with many completely sold out or almost sold out.
Saturday’s show in Minneapolis is a near-sell out and will go ahead as scheduled.
