Michael Anthony Confirms Van Halen Tribute Tour Talks

There’s at least some truth to the rumors of another Van Halen tour. Michael Anthony is saying he’s been talking to Alex Van Halen and David Lee Roth about a tribute tour, but the talks didn’t get very far.

Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted said he’d been approached by Alex about taking part in a tribute tour, with Joe Satriani on guitar. For his part, Anthony says he was talking with his former bandmates and Van Halen manager Irving Azoff at the same time, “so I don’t know what the Jason thing was all about.”

Roth, for his part, says a new tour would take at least two people for every position in the band, saying “Probably the only one who could do my job today would be Pink.”
