Wolfgang Van Halen dismisses ‘painfully fake’ 2019 Van Halen tour shirt

Wolfgang van halen says a widely circulated image on social media claiming to show a shirt for one of VAN HALENThe tour offered by 2019 is “painfully wrong”.

In November 2020, Wolfgang, who became VAN HALENbassist from in 2006, at the age of 15, revealed that his father, a legendary guitarist Eddie van halen, had contemplated a “kitchen sink” VAN HALEN tour that would have included the former bassist Michel Antoine, as well as the voice turns of the two Sammy Hagar and David lee roth. There was even talk of bringing back Gary Cherone, who sang with the group on a poorly received album, the years 1998 “Van Halen III”.

Monday (December 20), Montreal radio personality Jeremy Blanc shared a photo of a “local crew” shirt that someone said was intended for “the “Visit to the kitchen sink” that was never the case. “The tweet added” that only a few sites had permission to print shirts and that would have been in Chicago at Wrigley Field on 4/7/2019. “Alongside the heads of ‘supposed poster VAN HALEN, the shirt listed several acts of support, including FOO FIGHTERS, Jason aldean, WEEZER and Wolfganghis own group Mammoth WVH, the latest of which was only launched publicly last year.

After one of the Wolfgang‘s Twitter fans asked him if the t-shirt was genuine, the 30-year-old replied: Howard stern interview when the kitchen sink tour was first mentioned. “

Wolfgang added in a separate tweet: “Don’t believe everything you read on the internet cause that shirt is pure crap. Whoever did that is a fucking weird person. Just… why. It even looks stupid. . Such a poorly designed shirt. Plus, we didn’t even have an official final design for the MAMMOTH logo at the time, so yes.

“What an incredible coincidence that this photo appeared right after my Howard stern interview a year ago where I first talked about the kitchen sink tour. “

With Wolfgang on bass, VAN HALEN undertook extensive tours in 2007, 2012 and 2015. The group’s last concert series was held in the summer and fall of 2015. The North American trek consisted of 41 concerts starting July 5, 2015 and ending on October 4, 2015.

In early 2019, a rumor surfaced that the classic VAN HALEN the lineup would meet that summer for a series of stadium shows. It would have been the first time that Michael, David, Eddie van halen and Alex Van Halen played together since 1984.

The rumors originally started with Roth, who hinted Vulture this VAN HALEN would play in stadiums with Antoine back in line.

VAN HALEN and Antoine had not been on good terms for over a decade, with Antoine not invited to join the meeting with Roth which started in 2007.

Antoine suffered a reduction in salary and waived all rights to the name and logo of the group in order to participate in VAN HALEN2004 tour, which included Agar.

Eddie died in October 2020 at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, California. The iconic VAN HALEN Axeman died of cancer, his son confirmed.
