Tremonti name fill-in bassist for Wolfgang Van Halen

Tremonti have announced Tanner Keegan will handle bass duties in Wolfgang Van Halen’s absence on their upcoming tour dates in support of their forthcoming album, “Cauterize.”

Van Halen will miss the group’s tour due to a scheduling conflict with his namesake band.

"I am still part of Tremonti and very excited for the release of Cauterize,” explains Wolfgang, “but unfortunately am unable to participate in the upcoming dates due to my prior commitment with Van Halen for the summer tour in support of the Tokyo Dome Live In Concert album.

"Look forward to seeing all of the Tremonti fans on the road as soon as my schedule permits!"

Led by Alter Bridge/Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti, the band will hit the road for a spring US tour starting April 25 in Orlando, Florida, while “Cauterize” will be released on June 9.

Wolfgang and Van Halen will launch an extensive North American tour on July 5 in Seattle.
