Van Halen wrapped up the first leg of their Different Kind of Truth tour Tuesday in New Orleans, and they have nothing on the books until Japan in November. Bassist Wolfgang Van Halen Tweets, "Thanks everyone for such an incredible tour! It’s been a wonderful experience. You guys are the best!” They played 48 shows on the first leg and had scheduled another run through the summer, but it was scrapped due to low ticket sales.
Eddie Van Halen says this lineup, with him, his brother Alex, his son Wolfgang and David Lee Roth "feels more like a band and a family than it ever has --and not just because three quarters of it is family. Working with Dave has been very productive. We’re all very opinionated about things, but it’s all for the benefit of the music.” He adds that they hope to record another album once they're done touring behind their latest release, A Different Kind of Truth.
