David Lee Roth Lied About Van Halen Tour?
Is Van Halen touring Europe or not? On Monday (March 11th), David Lee Roth announced during a radio interview: "We're going to be playing Europe -- probably 50, 60 shows outside of the States, starting at the end of this year, and then come back around through the U.S." Legendary music mogul Irving Azoff, who manages Eddie and Alex Van Halen, spoke to Billboard, and essentially called Roth a liar, explaining, "All the announced dates, which include the date in Australia, the dates in Japan and a date in Wisconsin, are confirmed and on sale and those are real. I manage the Van Halens, and I know nothing about any European tour."
Van Halen will close out the annual Rock USA Festival, scheduled for July 17th through the 20th in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
