Van Halen postpones summer tour

, Staff

After recently announcing an extension to their touring plans, Van Halen have abruptly pulled back and postponed the dates instead. Consequently, fans in New England will not be able to catch the legendary classics rockers’ scheduled performance at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Saturday, July 7. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

No reason has been given for the postponement. Citing an unnamed source, Rolling Stone first reported the tour had been cancelled because members were once again feuding. Van Halen News Desk, a fansite, has since reported that the tour is only temporarily postponed due to fatigue. The band, who are currently on the road, will complete the tour’s current leg which ends June 26 in New Orleans. No official announcement has been made by the band.

Van Halen have been touring for the past few months in support of their new album, A Different Kind Of Truth. Released in February, their first album with original frontman David Lee Roth in 28 years debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200. The band’s 12th studio effort also marks the recording debut of bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, son of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, who replaced original bassist Michael Anthony in 2006.

Earlier this year, Van Halen performed multiple shows in New England including Boston’s TD Garden and the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire.
