Yesterday, Pollstar reported that Van Halen will hit the road again in 2010. My first reaction was... "Say what?"
Isn't it a little premature for VH to hit the road again? I mean, they just toured - for a long time. They made a ton of cash! I thought this "break" was so Eddie and the rest could record a new album? This mythical new album would feature Wolfgang Van Halen on bass. Because of this lineup switch, I was definitely looking forward to new material. I love Michael Anthony. I think having him back is the only way to have "real" Van Halen...but hearing a new perspective from Wolfgang is cool too.
Maybe it's just me, but I think it's a little greedy for VH to hit the road again without a new record. Maybe a new record will happen and it just hasn't been announced. I dunno. I can't see myself spending another $200 a ticket for the same show I saw not so long ago - twice.
What do you think? Does VH need a new album to tour? Will you be first in line for tickets?
