Eddie Van Halen Illness Delays Reunion Shows

Reunited rockers Van Halen have had to postpone four US shows as guitarist Eddie Van Halen undergoes "a battery of medical tests" according to a press statement.

Van Halen reformed last year, fronted for the first time in 25 years by original singer David Lee Roth.

The original 25-date US tour which was meant to begin last March was delayed until September whilst Eddie Van Halen was treated in a rehab centre for his ongoing battle with alcoholism.

The guitarist has also previously had oral cancer and a hip replacement.

The affected shows were due to take place this week in Dallas, Cincinnati, Baltimore and Raleigh.

They are expected to be rescheduled to take place next month.
