VAN HALEN LIVE ON STAGE IN 2004?
News seems to be leaking about Van Halen
and a possible US tour this year. Well folks, it is being looked at/planned. But the size and length of the tour is very much to be determined.
It's quite possible the selected live dates will be stand alone - in other words, the band will not be supporting a new release with the tour. As plans currently seem to stand, a Best Of Volume 2 is due later in the year - possibly September, with an all new studio album to follow that - should be the band (Sammy Hagar, Eddie & Alex Van Halen
and Michael Anthony) all prove they can still work together and get along.
The Best Of will feature new tracks, which are currently being worked on. There remains several issues to resolve and sort out. More updates shortly. And for the record - I'm told there won't be a Van Halen appearance at the Superbowl.
But - proof of activity can be shown! A search has been underway for an opening act and I can prove that as I spoke with the lead singer of one band that were offered the slot! They have not yet accepted the offer, fearing the planned tour may not go the distance.
