“Van Halen to be confirmed playing at Download Festival and Sweden Rock. Seems to be their only European shows this summer.”

From Zegut, a well-known French radio host. Can’t tell how reliable this might be, though.

Would be cool if they do play with a few NEW songs..


EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.

We’ve been waiting to see VH for sooo long here in Europe, that I’d still be happy if they played Pretty Woman 24 times in a row :)

That might mean pro shots? Can’t show concerts on tv in the U.S. heck someone might watch them!

I hope they do play Europe! Those Festivals are usually aired on TV and we don’t have that good stuff here

You saw that “2013 World Tour” shirt they sold at the WI and CA shows this summer right? Only had those two dates on it. Kinda sad. So, judging from that … a “world tour” means one show in California, and one show in Wisconsin. Woot!

That’s because they’ve been banned from Scotland. :D

I’m guessing that most of the hotel trashing happened sometime during the night. But with Van Halen … who knows … maybe they trashed them day and night!

but the thing is they came back to scotland in 1980 for the world invasion tour.
and they played the glasgow apollo. cause a few of my older mates were there.

I don’t know much about the story, but I think the 1980 Glasgow show at the Apollo was when the ban was started.
