Without explanation, Van Halen have suddenly postponed more than 30 North American tour dates throughout July, August and September. The postponement starts in July, with all scheduled shows following the reunited rockers’ June 26th show in New Orleans removed from the Van Halen website and postponed via promoter AEG Live.   Van Halen’s shows throughout May and June, including one in St. Paul on Saturday, will go on as planned.  Van Halen has spent much of 2012 on the road, promoting A Different Kind Of Truth, their first album with David Lee Roth since 1984.

No official statement from Van Halen’s camp has been offered up regarding these postponements or when the new dates will be announced. In fact, the band announced that they were adding more to the tour just earlier this week, so the rescheduling comes as a surprise. In 2008, Van Halen was forced to put a tour on hold due to Eddie Van Halen’s undisclosed health problems.
In local markets, promoter AEG Live have not been listing reasons for the delay, promising “future dates to be announced,” reports Salt Lake City’s Daily Herald.
Van Halen’s remaining and postponed tour dates are below.
