After postponing their US tour, David Lee Roth has let it slip that Van Halen’s next plans are for Japan and Australia.

Van Halen postponed 30 dates across the US recently, and Diamond Dave has explained that it was because the newly-reunited act didn’t want to burn out too soon.

In a video message, he specified that it wasn’t because the band were quarrelling (they’re “getting along famously” he says), as many had suspected, but because their schedule was too daunting.

“The band is winning but our schedule has been sidelined for unnecessary roughness,” he said in the message.

Then he continued, “If we continue past July 4 and all the way into Australia and Japan then we’re asking for the robot zombie tour.”

Rumours have abounded that the band will play Fuji Rock in Japan at the end of July, so if that’s their plans, expect an Australian tour either beforehand in mid-July (less likely) or after in early-August (much more likely).

He concluded that they’ll bring a “monster truck rally”-type tour to the United States “as soon as we learn to speak Australian”.

Check out the message below.
