Further Dates Postponed in Van Halen's Reunion Tour

March 11, 2008 (4:58 am) GMT
Organizers said that Eddie Van Halen has to go through medical tests and therefore the concerts have to wait.

As many as seventeen dates have now been postponed in 's reunion tour to give time for frontman to go through "medical tests to define a course of treatment.". The rock band that have postponed a week's worth of concert earlier this month, will only be back on the stage the earliest on April 19 in Las Vegas

Those dates affected from the postponing include the show in Charlottesville, V.A. today (March 11) and a Madison Square Garden gig on March 17. Although no rescheduled dates have been announced, fans are being asked to keep their tickets, which will be honored at makeup dates or they can do a refund at the point of purchase.

Organizers of the event would not elaborate on what tests Eddie will go through but they did say that Eddie "is currently under doctors' care" and will "continue medical tests to define a course of treatment." The frontman has been known to fight addiction to drugs and battle cancer.
