Van Halen Tour Unhinged

3/2/2008 7:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ the Van Halen tour has just been canceled!

We're told arrangements are being made right now to cancel hotel stays for the tour -- which was scheduled to continue through April 19th. Sources tell us the reason for the cancellation is Eddie -- that he is having "issues."

The last three shows had already been canceled. There have been reports that Eddie was out of it during concerts -- and video of recent performances in which his guitar playing was atrocious.

Reps could not be reached for comment.

TMZ is the online equivalent of the National Enquirer. And to all the losers with their nasty comments that match their IQ, get a life. The shows are only POSTPONED. Get well Eddie! See you in Raleigh!

I've seen the show twice and enjoyed it both times. Was going to Gwinett, the Atlanta areas second show, but it was postponed, and had a ticket for Wednesday night's show in Cincy, but it has been postponed. Some sound problems in Atlanta's first show at Phillips, but it was still a good concert. Not anyone in the band's fault about the sound. If they do get things squared away and the shows go on, be sure to check it out. I will! Lots of great songs they didn't play live in their earlier gigs. I'm still holding out to go to Gwinett and Cincy at the rescheduled dates. Rock on!!!

Did it ever occur to anyone bashing Val that perhaps she coincided her book promo schedule with the tour, so that she could see her son as much as possible? It's his first tour, and she knows full well about that life. I'd say she's just a Mom trying to be near her son.

You TMZ folks need better examples, if you're going to post them as proof of your story.

There's nothing patently wrong with anything EVH Played on that video. And to call it atrocious is laughable at best.

Just rename the site nationalenquirer2 and get on with it.

His playing was bad because his guitar went out on him. It was a teck problem and you can't stop in the middle of a song to change guitars.

A comment to #10 Les- Maybe you should get your facts straingt before bashing Valerie B. She has said and he will say that they both cheated (Eddie more than she) and this was discussed throughtout their marriage. If you listen to interviews, she even goes on to say that they have had arguments of who cheated first in the marriage. So, Les, he didn't just find out about it. The book is about her life and he was a part of that life for many years, dumbass.

Why don't you look at the big picture, poor Wolfie is on stage performing with his father who is high on whatever! I think that might be a littler more disturbing than his mom writing a book about herself and her weightloss.

Not to mention I like Eddie, always have, but be honest, the guy is a mess.

Eddie is not drinking again, he is not on coke either. The man is dying in a hospital somwehere due to cancer. Give him a break. I have seen this tour 3 times and it has gone downhill all the way. Health is a big issue.

Eddie rocks and I hope he is alive in three weeks. Cancer, not cocaine is a big problem none of us can beat.

TMZ sucks big ones. If they would've talked to anyone in the know, intead of listening to kooks and rumors, they would've gotten this one right. They cancelled hotels for the few dates that were rescheduled. Did you guys even check down the road a little bit further? No. With someting as big a deal as this VH reunion is, and as highly anticipated as it is, you should really do a little more due dilligence in your reporting. I'll never trust anything you goofs say again.

Strange, you've reported the tour is cancelled, and yet, I believe they will be onstage tomorrow night! Dumbazzes!

I got the GOLD PACKAGE to Grand Rapids!!! Pre-Show Party, Back Stage Pass, inside the ramp for the show!!! Gonna be the greatest night of my life!! And TMZ tried to ruin it for me. Shame on TMZ!

Figures you'd get this one wrong. From what I've seen from your TV show you have a bunch of California fruit loops posing as, I don't even know what, journalists? Really just silly kids/burnouts digging dirt, true or not, on anyone you find interesting. You guys kind of suck. Hard.

that's all    

Van Halen rocked in New Orleans Feb. 7th! Valerie need to exercise and eat less. Who would even read her boring book? I'd rather watch paint dry,

Apparently the tour is on hold again until at least April 19th:

Guess they won't be coming to Charlottesville, VA tonight as planned......
