Van Halen Cancels Remaining Tour Dates From Reported Fatigue

Three months into their tour for ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ Van Halen abruptly canceled the last 30 dates of their North American trek. Van Halen Cancels Remaining Tour Dates From Reported Fatigue

Last week, Van Halen announced without warning that the last 30 dates of their North American tour were canceled. Since they made the unofficial statement, a reliable source came forward, explaining the group was canceling these dates as the result of fatigue. While this amount accounts for roughly three months of their tour, Van Halen apparently isn’t canceling these performances permanently and is merely postponing them.

While rumors of internal disagreements, injuries, or poor ticket sales soon came about after the informal announcement, the source set the record straight by saying: "[The band is] doing great with ticket sales. They're not fighting. They're just burnt and they want to take some time off. They got so excited and everything was going so well, they said, 'let's add more dates,' and I don't think they realized how tired they were. That may not sound like the truth, but it is."

He went onto add: "They are going to go out and do some more, we just don't know when yet."
