Are We Getting a Van Halen Tour in 2019?
Is Van Halen readying a 2019 tour??
David Lee Roth dropped into the offices of Vulture to talk about a new business –Ink The Original–a line of skincare products designed to keep tattoos from fading, when he casually let it slip that the band has some plans brewing for next summer to be “playing where the Yankees play.”
“When we come back through town in the summertime and do the original thing, maybe somewhere sportin’, maybe with somebody famous…I’ll make sure we get you all tickets so you can see what we do for gainful employment,” he said coyly.
“I can say that I contacted colleagues about being part of the show: Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Jason Aldean, the Foo Fighters, [country stars Eric] Church and [Chris] Stapleton. And they all said that, if everything happens, they would certainly be involved,” he teased.
This is news considering the group hasn’t been on the road since 2015.
“We’re on a James Bond schedule, every three-and-a-half summers, so you don’t go, ‘Weren’t you just here?’ and then we’d start selling fewer tickets,” he teased.
What do you think, BOSS listeners? Is Diamond Dave toying with our emotions?
