    Van Halen Cancels 31 shows Rumors swirl

    what has been a well received tour by fans and critics alike the band appears to have hit some sort of wall, what that is no one is saying. I will be seeing them next month so if I can get close enough to Dave I will ask him what is up

    Is "Ludwig" code for "Eddie's ego"?

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.

    Sammy will comment for you....

    “They’re hard people to get along with, those brothers,” Hagar told The Associated Press on Friday. “Otherwise I’d still be in the band.

    “I’m surprised it took this long” for the tour to experience major difficulties, he added. “I predicted this was going to happen a lot sooner. I lost money on that bet!”

    Van Haggar was awful.

    The new stuff "Van Halen" put out (i.e. tatoo) should have gotten them a citation for noise polution. I was actually embarrassed for them when I heard that song.

    Give it up, guys.

    That was a great stretch for Hagar.

    Van Halen just fine , will reschedule the shows and ticket sales are just fine.

    OU812 (in response to DLR's Eat 'em and Smile) and For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge (the acronym) are probably 2 of the more childish albums names from a rock band that I can think of.

    31 shows, 31 flavors. Coincidence, I think not.

    VAN HALEN IS GOING TO PLAY AT BASKIN ROBBINS!!!!!!!!!!

    Yup one never knows when it comes to the VH brothers egos...LOL...

    Only took them 14 years to put out a new album of old re-recorded demo's that is a stinker at best....now thats what I call caring about your fans and not the $$....LOL...

    Just fine...they are a shell of themselves.....and its sad to watch....
