Original Van Halen Lineup Rumors Aren’t Credible

In a recent interview, David Lee Roth hinted that Van Halen will play stadium shows next summer. Roth has been back in the fold since 2007.

Since then, there have been rumors that it would be the original line-up of Roth, Eddie and Alex Van Halen, and bassist Michael Anthony.

We reached out to the Anthony, who told us exclusively, “The only comment I have is that I have not spoken to any of the guys (besides Alex who I had a brief ‘hello, how you doing’ conversation with a few years back) since we last played together back in 2004.”

At present, Anthony is likely to spend 2019 touring with Sammy Hagar and The Circle in support of their first studio album, which will be out in the spring.

Eddie’s son Wolfgang has been the bassist in VH since 2006.
