In a new video message, David Lee Roth explains why Van Halen recently postponed an extensive of series of U.S. concerts, and addresses rumors of in-fighting between he and his band mates.
In the clip, which was filmed at an apparently secluded pond while Van Halen was en route to its concert Saturday in Minneapolis, the frontman declares, "The band is getting along famously, better than we have in quite some time."
Roth then admits, "As usual, we bit off way more than we can chew when it came to scheduling. The band is winning, but our schedule has been sidelined for unnecessary roughness."
The singer points out that the group is going to "take a break" in order to avoid having the trek turn into what he refers to "the robot zombie tour." Roth also assures the fans that Van Halen is planning "to come all the way back around" through the United States, revealing that the entire tour will take the band "about two years" to complete.
In addition, Roth declares that Van Halen's next scheduled leg will especially enthrall concertgoers. "We have in mind a super-size, monster-truck-rally, Van Halen tractor pull sort of event," he says. Roth adds that the band's next stateside leg will take place after the group visits Australia.
Van Halen's current trek is scheduled to wind down with a June 26 concert. No word yet when the band plans to return to the road.
