UPDATE

Van Halen’s upcoming November dates in Japan have been rescheduled to 2013 due to Eddie Van Halen’s recent diagnosis and surgery with diverticulitis. Originally planned for November 20 in Osaka and November 27 in Tokyo, the new dates are June 21, 2013 at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo and June 24 and June 26 at Osaka’s Central City Gymnasium. Tickets for the original shows will be honored for the new dates.

As for rescheduling of the numerous North American dates that were postponed in 2012, no news yet but we’ll have it for you if that comes to light.

Van Halen fans have to be scratching their heads at this point in frustration. After the major buzz of the tour featuring a reunited band with David Lee Roth, came the hugely disappointing cancellation of the tour after their gig in New Orleans on June 26.

According to Pollstar, Roth stated that the band had “bit off way more than they could chew.”

However, the band has now revealed they will be playing a couple of dates in Japan of all places later this year in November. The dates scheduled are a November 20 show in Osaka at the Osaka Chuo Gymnasium and a November 27 show in Tokyo at the Tokyo Dome.

One can hope that the North American dates will be rescheduled and we can bring you the best deals on tickets. If any news comes about, we’ll be sure to bring it to you on our blog.

UPDATE

Van Halen – Tattoo (2012) Music Video

PAST INFO

Update 45/2/2012: Van Halen is in the midst of their 2012 spring and summer tour with Kool & the Gang, hitting stops all across the U.S. before wrapping up Jun. 26 in New Orleans. We also took a special look at Van Halen’s concert at Madison Square Garden. See below for the complete tour schedule and historical prices for each show.

Tour Dates Finally Released

After their set in NYC tonight, Van Halen released an extensive list of tour dates for 2012. Including another NYC run at Madison Square Garden.

Happy Boxing Day! To celebrate, Van Halen announced a new tour today. David Lee Roth is back in the fold (and apparently twirling a baton) and will be taking lead vocals again. The announcement was made on their website, however there are no tour dates listed. It is probably the most exciting black and white video I’ve seen on a Boxing Day in recent memory (Warning: There’s a lot of David Lee Roth hip gyrations involved in this video).

According to their website, tickets go on sale January 10th. Keep checking back here at SeatGeek for tour dates. Until then, sign up below to find out about upcoming shows in your area, including Van Halen concerts.
