Van Halen Australian Tour Speculated for October, 2012

Written by Marc Zanotti on July 4, 2012

Before any official dates have even been announced, it looks like any plans that the aging rock act Van Halen may have to visit Australian have already been pushed back. In February Music Feeds reported that music reporter Nui Te Koha told Triple M he expected the band in Australia sooner than later.

“David Lee Roth said this week that it’s very likely they’ll do international touring and you’d be stupid not to have Australia on the agenda”, he said.

At the time Nui Te Koha expected the band in August/September, but Triple M has recently reported that Nui Te Koha is now thinking October is a more likely date.

“They’re going to do Japan in November and one major promoter is talking to Van Halen about October, so it looks very good”, he said.

Whatever the actual dates turn out to be, Van Halen singer David Lee Roth has publicly stated Van Halen will make it to Australian sometime soon (as can been seen and heard in the attached video below).

Van Halen hasn’t been receiving favourable reviews for their live performance of late. Roth reportedly forgot some of the band’s lyrics mid-set during Van Halen’s first show of their Different Kind of Truth World Tour, which kicked off in Louisville, US.

Meanwhile Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney told Rolling Stone he didn’t enjoy watching Van Halen live, saying the performance, “felt flat. It didn’t sound good. I don’t think Dave’s voice is really there.”

Carney also critised Van Halen for replacing original bassist Michael Anthony with Eddie Van Halen’s son Wolfgang.

“I mean, sure, Eddie Van Halen’s son is a pretty good bass player and he’s a 20-year-old kid and that’s cool, but like, what the fuck is that? That’s fucking retarded. If someone is able to be in a band for 30 years and then people are okay with replacing him with a 17-year-old, they’re obviously motherfucking assholes, right?”, Carney said.
