Just four months after saying he believed a reunion tour with Van Halen was “inevitable”, Sammy Hagar now claims he’s given up on the idea because his former bandmates failed to wish him a happy birthday this year as he recently reached the milestone of 70. Sammy has not had any real contact with his former group since a 2004 reunion tour ended poorly, outside of a Happy Birthday tweet from Eddie Van Halen in 2016.
While fans continue to cling to fading hopes that Led Zeppelin will reunite, singer Robert Plant has revealed that he can’t stand to hear his own voice on some of those classic recordings. He’s especially not a fan of the tough approach that he gave to songs starting on their third album, noting that he thinks the songs are better without him singing on them.
Weezer and the Pixies will join up for a co-headlining tour next summer. The Wombats will serve as opening act from June 23 – July 15, with support for the tour’s second half to be announced shortly. The tour launches June 23 in Tampa, Florida and will wrap up in Phoenix, Arizona on August 12. The tour will include a stop at Budweiser Stage in Toronto July 14, 2018. Weezer will be supporting the recently released album, Pacific Daydream, while the Pixies are still touring behind the album, Head Carrier, released last year.
