Based on reports of Eddie’s behavior during the band’s final show of this tour, which took place in Tucson last Friday, it sounds like Van Halen has hit more bumpy ground.
A reporter for Tucson Weekly reviewed the show, and his write-up includes the following excerpt:
Seeming to have fallen off the bandwagon yet again, EVH’s mood changed drastically as the final performance ended. Constantly yelling, “That’s it, it’s over,” all night, Eddie made the crowd ponder if another breakup was on the horizon. This was later fueled after “Right Now,” when EVH smashed his guitar repeatedly before swinging his ax, almost nailing Hagar. This immediately drew a “What the fuck?” reaction from his band and the crowd.
