Van Halen postpones more than 30 shows, Newt takes full responsibility
According to breaking news, Van Halen has just postponed more than 30 summer tour dates, with no explanation given.
According to Rollingstone.com, the group abruptly postponed all the concerts that were scheduled to happen after its June 26 show in New Orleans. The website quoted a source as saying the band members "hate each other" and are "arguing like mad".
I'm not particularly surprised by the postponements. In fact, I'll take full responsibility. No doubt my non-rave review of the group's May 7 show at Rogers Arena had a lot to do with the recent developments. Time for David Lee Roth to pack it in, I'm afraid. Nostalgia only goes so far.
Speaking of which, here's some nostalgia for ya. Maybe if they would have played this song in Van my review would have been a tad more positive.
