North American tour dates for Van Halen that the group postponed several weeks ago are now apparently canceled. The update was noted by Pollstar and appears to be confirmed by Ticketmaster, whose site changed the status of dates in Uncasville (CT), Baltimore, Rochester, Detroit, Toledo, Memphis, Sacramento, Reno and Milwaukee from postponed to canceled. The explanation for the dates being put on hold was that the band decided the schedule was too intense and risked the tour turning into a '...robot zombie tour', according to a video statement released by David Lee Roth at the time the delay became official. The fact VH seemed willing to sacrifice U.S. dates so it would be in good form for the November tour of Japan should hardly sit well with US fans that jumped to buy tickets when dates were first announced and found out only days later they had blown a bunch of bucks on a 'postponed' concert. Ticket holders can get those bucks back at point of purchase or have credit cards credited.
