the boys are being coy. they said they cancelled those dates due to exhaustion. which is not necessarily a lie. my guess is that dave's voice is shot and he needs some time to recoup. i saw them in oakland a few weeks ago. FUCKIN' FUN ASS TIME! if you've never heard The Mighty Van Halen shred your ears with muthafuckin' Unchained, you haven't lived ;-)
and judging by dave, eddie and alex fucking with eachother onstage, they seem to be genuinely getting along.
but they are nearing 60 and let's be honest, all those north american dates were a shit-ton for a bunch of old farts.
they said they will be touring Australia and japan when they gear up again.
the only Van Halen i ever want to see at coachella is the one that is brought to the stage via time machine straight from 1980-84 or whenever the fuck their prime was. i could care less about seeing has been dino rockers playing music that sounds like a guitarcenter commercial. also Eddie is a douche and would probably jump at the chance to be relevant to the kids these days as he once attempted when nirvana fucked up their world
Before a December 1993 Nirvana show in Los Angeles, Eddie Van Halen was seen and heard backstage begging Kurt Cobain if he could jam with the grunge band that night. Annoyed, Cobain replied, “No, you can’t play with us. We don’t have any extra guitars.” Persisting on, the heavily intoxicated Van Halen, who was on his knees, shouted out, “Well, let me play the Mexican’s (referring to Nirvana touring guitarist Pat Smear) guitar. What is he, is he Mexican? Is he black?” Seeing all this, filmmaker Dave Markey, who was videotaping the show that night, turned off his camera in pity of the inebriated Van Halen, thus saving future generations from witnessing this fiasco on youtube.
nirvana closed the set that nite with the song "blew" and dedicated it to EVH
