Van Halen Officially Cancels Local Shows on Second Leg of Different Kind of Truth Tour

Fans that had purchased tickets to the second leg of the tour were anxiously awaiting a new date after shows at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center on July 11th and the Izod Center in the Meadowlands on July 13th, were originally postponed. Those shows have now officially been cancelled. Ticketmaster sent out a message this morning to ticketholders stating the following:

Attention ticket holder!

The Van Halen show at IZOD Center on Friday, July 13th at 7:30PM has been cancelled. Tickets purchased via the internet and charge by phone will be automatically credited to your credit card.

IZOD Center

Friday, July 13th at 7:30PM

We’ll automatically refund your order, including fees (except UPS and In-Store Pick Up, if applicable) to your credit card within 7 – 10 business days.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused fans.

The cancellation of shows goes against remarks legendary guitarist  Eddie Van Halen recently made when he said the current line up with David Lee Roth on vocals is here to stay and wasn’t just a one-time gimmick.  There were also rumors of special 2013 plans for the band which people were speculating could be a performance at the Super Bowl.

Fans will now be left to wonder what becomes of the enigmatic band after this latest round of show cancellations. Will they find a way to put it back together or will Van Halen just go ‘back to the future’ an go there separate ways once again?

What’s your take? Do you think this is the end for Van Halen or will they be able to put it back together at some point? Leave your comments below.
