Van Halen Reunion Is Totally On Again (Until It’s Off Again)

OK! The moment you 1984 babies were waiting for finally arrived! In February. And then it was squashed like Diamond Dave’s manbits during a patented spandexed jump. And then a Gollum-esque Eddie checked into rehab. So, you ready for another round?

Right now (hey!), the band is at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles, holding a conference to announce officially a reunion tour running through the US and Canada, kicking off in North Carolina on 9/27. They’re really doing it this time! Unless/until David irritates them before then/Eddie falls off the wagon again. The lineup features Lee Roth and three Van Halens (Eddie’s kid Wolfgang is taking Michael Anthony’s spot on bass, leaving Anthony ample time to tend to his XXXTra Hot Private Reserve hot sauce).
