Van Halen: Cancel European Tour Before It Was Announced (?)
that VH have cancelled their planned 2012 Summer Tour of Europe -
before the dates were even announced.
planning was so far along for the tour, the dates and venues were
already locked in. No reason has reportedly been given to promoters
for the cancellation - simply that the schedule was not going to go
ahead, as planned.
The alleged cancelled dates were:
Halen 2012 European Tour
May 28 – Paris, FR - Zenith May

DE - Schleyerhalle June 15 – Hellfest – Clisson, France June
17 – Fields Of Rock Festival - Holland June 19 – Berlin, DE -
O2 Arena June 21 – Prague June 23 – Graspop Metal Meeting -
Rather than speculate on what this report means, in
the big picture, we’ll await a response and official confirmation
on this news from someone in the VH camp.
In the aftermath of
the original story’s posting, Andrew from Melodicrock
commented online, “The tour was originally planned to start
Sept in Oz, then in USA November, kick off again in Feb 2012. Hit
Europe for the festivals (May/June) and then return to USA for second
