News — 12 March 2013

The mighty Van Halen are getting back into action after Eddie Van Halen was sidelined by emergency surgery last year. According to front man David Lee Roth, the powerhouse rock group will perform a long string of dates in Europe toward the end of the year.

In a recent interview Dave Lee Roth tell us: “We’re going to be playing Europe — probably 50, 60 shows outside of the States, starting at the end of this year, and then come back around through the US,”.

Any return to the US is likely to be next year — there are no plans for North America in 2013 outside of an appearance at the Rock USA festival that the singer said only happened by accident.

“I’m frankly surprised that these happened now,” he asserted. “I think probably they had designs on somebody else, and somebody else got sick. ‘Cause y’know, we’re kind of here to save the day. These are big shows — these are like 50-70,000-person shows. And they’re just coming together fast, which says probably somebody else bowed out or somebody else took ill.”

The irrepressible singer was as enthusiastic as ever when it comes to talking about the upcoming shows. “Van Halen is very pure and uncut kinda music,” he raved. “It’s a little like getting drunk on shots of really good Kentucky bourbon. It’s like, you’ll have a great night — but you probably won’t want to see us again for three years!”

 

VAN HALEN en EuropaVan Halen vuelven a la acción después de la operación de Eddie Van Halen que le apartó de los escenarios demasiado tiempo. Según Dave Lee Roth el grupo llevará a cabo a final de año una potente gira por Europa.

Dave Lee Roth detonó la noticia está mañana diciendo:

Estaremos tocando en Europa probablemente entre 50 y 60 shows a partir de finales de año. Durante este 2013 ya no tocaremos más en USA, a excepción del festival Rock USA que en realidad ha sido un accidente. Estoy muy sorprendido de que vayamos a tocar ahí, aunque creo que vamos para salvar el día.

Van Halen es muy puro, música sin cortes, es como emborracharse de Whisky bueno. Vamos a dar a cada fan una gran noche pero probablemente sea tan buena que no quieran vernos en unos años”.

Se habló de Hellfest con Van Halen, se habló de GMM e incluso se rumoreo un Azkena con ellos. Al final ni una cosa ni otra, se supone que había intención de venir, pero finalmente lo harán ellos como gira convencional. Esperemos que recalen en España.
