This tour was supposed to last a few years and with the band getting tired out and now Eddie Van Halen’s emergency surgery, it now appears it really will last a few years.
Eddie Van Halen had successful emergency surgery for a severe bout of diverticulitis. That is quite painful.
There is no further surgery needed but Eddie will be recovering for the next 4-6 months.
The Japanese leg of the tour will now take place in 2013.
We wish Eddie and speedy recovery. We hope the pain subsides soon.-DocFB
