In Eddie Trunk’s radio show, a source revealed that Van Halen will perform in Chicago at Wrigley Field on July 27.
Legendary singer David Lee Roth has previously said he knows of concerts at Fenway Park in Boston and at Yankee Stadium in New York.
“There’s a guy who works at Live Nation who told my brother Van Halen booked a date at Wrigley Field on July 27,” the source revealed.
The possible of Van Halen tour could happend with his original line-up, consisting of David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and Michael Anthony. They haven’t played live since 1984.
“‘No, not happening, Michael Anthony said he hasn’t heard from anybody.’ Of course! Just take a second and apply some logic to it. Is the guy that has been out of the band forever – if he was back in the band, do you really think he’s the one who is going to break the news ahead of an official statement?”
“With guys – even if you know them – they aren’t going to show their hand. I’ll give you one more: Ace Frehley. Everybody knows I’m tight with Ace. Ace Frehley leading into the KISS reunion didn’t tell me it was happening.
“I mean, I am close with the guys, I signed him to his record deal back in the day, his solo deal. I went to the Unplugged, I was in the audience of the MTV Unplugged, three or four days before that happened. I wasn’t saying anything. [Laughs]
“You don’t want to get off on the wrong foot leaking something, so just keep all of this in perspective both ways. Don’t get too high, don’t get too low on anything.”
“You really think he is going to mess it up by telling me or anyone else in advance of when the band wants to release it? Come on, you can’t put people in positions like that. O course they’re going to deny, deny, deny until it can come out – if there’s anything going on.
“You’re not going to jeopardize pissing off the boss – in this case, that would be Eddie Van Halen – if you’ve got something cooking, a multimillion operation.
