Irving Azoff Confirms No European Tour For Van Halen

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on March 13, 2013

Oh, here we go. It’s like the Rolling Stones all last year with “We’re playing live”/”No we’re not” back and forth between group members.

Yesterday, David Lee Roth said on the Opie and Anthony show that Van Halen would be mounting a major European tour later this year where they would play 50 to 60 shows.

Not true says Irving Azoff, former executive chairman of Live Nation and manager for Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang Van Halen. “All the announced dates, which include the date in Australia, the dates in Japan and a date in Wisconsin, are confirmed and on sale and those are real. I manage the Van Halens, and I know nothing about any European tour.”

Being that the man manages 3/4 of the group, we would have a tendency to believe what he is saying; however, it wouldn’t be the first time that a story has been denied only to be proven true a few weeks or even months later. It could be that David was just being David and saying things that really wasn’t true or it could be that Roth let something out that was supposed to be kept secret until the official announcement is made.
