Van Halen Reschedules Japan for 2013

From Pollstar today:

The good news for Van Halen’s fans in Japan is that rescheduled shows in Osaka and Tokyo have been announced. The bad news is they’ll have to wait until summer 2013 to see Eddie & Co. in action.

Van Halen had originally planned to play Japan in late November. But that was before Eddie Van Halen underwent surgery in August for diverticulitis, a condition resulting from pouches in the colon becoming inflamed.

Now, promoter Udo has listed new dates – June 21 at the Tokyo Dome and June 24 & 26 at Osaka’s City Central Gymnasium.

Udo says tickets purchased for the original dates will be honored. For more information, grab your favorite online translator and visit

UPDATE: Here’s all 4 Japan dates:

June 18 Nagoya, Japan
June 21 Tokyo Dome , Japan
June 24 Osaka’s City, Japan
June 26 Osaka’s City, Japan
