Michael Anthony shuts down Van Halen Reunion Rumors

Rumors of a Van Halen reunion featuring original members is looking unlikely.

Ex-bassist Michael Anthony has squashed rumors of a Van Halen reunion tour featuring original members. Just days ago, rumors that Anthony would rejoin the band for a 2019 summer tour were possible. David Lee Roth made mention of a stadium tour- “next time my rock band will be playing the same place that the Yankees play.” Vulture

Radio host Eddie Trunk added fuel to the fire, claiming reliable sources said the original band would be getting back together. “I did hear from somebody who is in the music industry, who told me that he has spoken to some people and he’s hearing from some people that there indeed will be some Van Halen activity in 2019 in terms of live shows.”

Those rumors proved to be short lived. Anthony told Premiere Radio Networks “The only comment I have is that I haven’t spoken to any of the guys since we last played together back in 2004”KSHE95
