Van Halen Tour Is On Like Donkey Kong!

3/3/2008 7:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Van Halen's current tour, much like most of their members, has been brought back from the dead. Van Halen
As we first reported, the group canceled remaining tour dates and hotel reservations through April 19. Live Nation, the company behind the tour, says that Eddie Van Halen is undergoing a battery of comprehensive medical tests to determine a defined diagnosis and recommended medical procedures. They say these dates are rescheduled starting April 24.

Eddie checked into rehab last year for alcohol-related issues.

Saw two shows on the tour - Chicago in October and the last Florida date (Feb. 20). He looked good, but something was wrong with his equipment during the Fla show. His guitar cord was stuck under a mic stand and you could see him getting P.O'd. He threw his guitar down during the "Jump" encore and then stomped offstage and pushed down a stack of amps. Something was up. They're in their 50's and doing 4 shows a week - that would be tough on a younger band! I think all of us who got to see them are lucky they stayed out for five months! Be Well, EVH - we love you!

He's Boring now    

They're only the number one grossing group on tour right now. Like Frank Zappa once said and released an album entitled, "We're Only in it For the Money".

These has been, former and present drug users are emotional and spiritual losers. Financially they are set, but Finances alone dont save marriages now do they Eddie?

I'm sure it doesn't help that his ex-wife just published her tell all book, undoubtedly to capitalize on the timing of Eddie's tour since her only claim to fame in the past 30 years is Jenny Craig.

I saw these guys in November in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) and they KICKED ass!!! They are in full form and anyone who grew up listening to them or the new generation that loves their stuff should do everything they can to see their show. Absolutely AWESOME!!!
And #2, didn't Valerie Bertenelli say in her latest book that she cheated on Eddie long before he did it to her? I guess it wasn't fianances that broke up their marriage, maybe it was a cheating spouse???? Hey, they lasted 20 years, more than most of us can say for a marriage these days, especially one that's famous!!!

How is it possible that 2 people as attractive as Eddie and Valerie had such an unattractive child? It doesn't look like the kind of fug he's going to outgrow either. DNA is a strange thing.

Bull...they have to figure out a legal strategy to end the whole thing without getting bankrupted by endless lawsuits. Watch for "Ed's got rectal cancer! No more tour! Can't tour with cancer up your ass!"

They didn't cancel the remaining tour dates. They canceled those in the next week. The tour starts back up in Charlottesville, VA on 3/11 with this week's tour dates being rescheduled for April.
