It looks like Van Halen are all set to announce a world tour at the Grammy Nominations ceremony in Los Angeles tonight. The band were set to re unite for the Soundwave Revolution tour in Australia in 2011 but it is believed their withdrawal actually lead to the whole festival being cancelled.
An official press release from the Grammys states:
The ceremony will feature a special, live announcement from a truly iconic group regarding their historic band reunion set to take place on the GRAMMY stage on Feb. 12, 2012.
The official Grammys twitter page also posted:
@Thegrammys: Who do u predict the reuniting band will be… Does this hint make u wanna “Jump” and “Dance the Night Away
So it looks like Van Halen will reform and the 2012 Grammy Awards night will be their first performance before they kick off a world tour with an Australian visit expected.
