Not only will Van Halen not be touring with original lead singer David Lee Roth this summer, but now it looks like they won’t be performing when they are inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. Instead, Velvet Revolver is set to take the stage in Van Halen’s place at the induction ceremony.
News reports from LAUNCH Radio have stated that Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash and singer Scott Weiland are expected to also speak for Van Halen when they are inducted at the March 12th ceremony that is being held at Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. It is not known if any of the Van Hallen members or former members will even attend the event.
Van Halen has been in the headlines since it was announced that the iconic rock band would be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. The announcement was followed by a word of a reunion tour with Roth, but it was postponed right before tickets were due to go on sale. No official word was given for the postponement.
Velvet Revolver (which features former Stone Temple Pilots’ singer Scott Weiland, and former Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum) are putting the finishing touches on their new album ‘Libertad’ and planning an tour of South America with Aerosmith in April.Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
