The rumour mill is working overtime today, but it looks like the stories of Val Halen reforming for a tour with David Lee Roth are finally true.
The band now consisting of David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and Eddie’s son Wolfgang Van Halen have apparently started planning dates for a US tour in September, although nothing official has been said yet.
In February, with huge hype surrounding them, the band called off their previously planned reunion tour and also cancelled their performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Only because in true rock ‘n’ roll fashion, Eddie had to go to rehab for a month for his drinking problems.
In a related note, we used to prank call people by playing “Jump” down the phone to them. A friend’s dad once listened to the whole song before saying “Kev, is that you?”
