Van Halen Tour Hits The Wall (video)

Within days of announcing a series of new dates, Van Halen suddenly announced that 30 of the concerts that had been on the schedule were being postponed.  Attempts to learn why all of the dates after  dates  after June 26 were being yanked were met with refusals to comment from tour promoter Live Nation and a representative of the group.  Rolling Stone magazine quoted an unidentified source as saying VH members '...hate each other', and are '...arguing like mad'.  The tour, which had been doing decent numbers, was out performing the band's comeback album, A Different Kind Of Truth' which has seen plummeting sales since selling close to 200,000 copies the week it was released.  The announcement of the postponements seems to have blindsided venue operators, who were also left in the dark about whether to offer ticket holders refunds.  Somewhere tonight, Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony are exchanging high fives.
Some comical wrath from Roth was directed at a fan during the band's recent concert in Winnipeg after a plastic bottle was thrown on stage. (video)
