Van Halen Reschedule Dates for Summer 2013

Van Halen fans around the world wound up being disappointed when the group cut their tour in support of their recent album ‘A Different Kind of Truth’ short after guitarist Eddie Van Halen underwent emergency surgery. But things appear to be looking up, as the band have booked three new dates for the summer of 2013 to replace the shows they had to cancel in Japan.

Van Halen were initially slated to play the Japanese dates in late November, but that was before Eddie Van Halen suffered a life-threatening bout of diverticulitis that put him out of commission and forced the group to change their plans. Bassist Wolfgang Van Halen hasn’t been sitting around — he spent much of the past few months on the road with Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti, who was touring to promote his solo album.

Wolfgang’s famous father even made it out to one of the gigs, looking healthy and prompting speculation that he might be getting ready to get back to work — and now it looks like father and son will, in fact, be returning to the road alongside singer David Lee Roth and drummer Alex Van Halen. As Brave Words reports, Van Halen have scheduled dates for June 21 in Tokyo, and June 24 and 26 in Osaka. The promoter will honor tickets from the original dates.

Now we can only hope that the group will regain their mojo and finish the North American tour, too.
