Van Halen reunion tour? Check!
[AP] LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Rock band Van Halen has reunited with the group's original singer David Lee Roth for their first tour together in more than 20 years, they announced on Monday at a news conference. Roth, 52, spoke virtually nonstop at the press event, promising that the band's upcoming 25-date North American trek was merely the precursor to a world tour and to a new album.By the by, the New York Post explains DLR's famous "incentive bonus system" for steering nubility backstage: in short, not a gigolo. At all. Let's face it, dude - '80s sex god' or not, you paid for it. ;)
"This is not like the Police," Roth said, referring to another band that recently papered over personality differences to launch a one-off reunion tour. "The idea is that this will continue on and on and on. [W]e think we got it right this time," Roth added. "You come and judge the performance harshly, please. I beg you, come on down and see."
