Van Halen postpones summer dates, including Detroit

for Journal Register Newspapers

» See more SOUND CHECK

Van Halen fans in Detroit and other cities won't be dancing the night away with the band this summer.

The group has suddenly and mysteriously "temporarily postponed" all of its concerts scheduled after a June 26 show in New Orleans, with no explanation. That takes out a planned July 19 stop at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena as well as a July 26 stop at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

There's no word yet on when the dates will be rescheduled.

The group kicked off its tour on Feb. 18 in Louisville to promote "A Different Kind of Truth," its first new album with original frontman David Lee Roth since 1984. The quartet played on Feb. 20 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Rolling Stone magazine quoted an unnamed source as saying that the famously temperamental band "is arguing like mad. They are fighting" and that the group members "hate each other."
