Van Halen to tour Australia in 2012?

Van Halen fans disappointed with last week’s headlines that Australia’s Soundwave Revolution festival had been cancelled (VH were the headliners), may have some good news on the way.

Triple M Melbourne reports the aborted VH tour of Australia is back on the table for 2012.

Triple M Music reporter Nui Te Koha tells listeners that two promoters have gone in and spoken to VH management and band, saying 'we really want Van Halen here next year'.

"This will be an arena tour,"
he revealed. "Van Halen has got an album coming out really soon. Two promoters have gone in and said 'this Soundwave Revolution thing was a debacle. We want to tour the band and it will happen early next year'."

It’s too early to know where this is headed, as VH and their management rarely share any news updates with fans, so we’ll have to wait and see if Australia is in the cards for VH fans in 2012.

Still no official word on when the new VH album will be released, or even when the first single is likely to drop.

Stay tuned.
