WHAT IF VAN HALEN DOESN’T SPLIT?
David Lee Roth stays with the VH brothers and continues touring to support the 1984 album. Eventually Roth loses his voice for a very long time, but this doesn’t stop Eddie and Alex from making their next album, an instrumental only record, titled: 1986. Despite Roth’s voice gone, they still tour (with DLR only doing karate kicks on stage) and for two years sell out arenas worldwide.

Ozzy Osbourne Postpones Two Shows

Ozzy Osbourne's MySpace blog has been updated with the following announcement about postponing tonight's tour date and the show on December 12th due to an ear infection:

"Based on advice from doctors, it is with great regret that Ozzy Osbourne is postponing the remaining two dates (Friday, December 10 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, MO and Sunday, December 12 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN). The multi-platinum Rock & Roll Hall of Famer has contracted an ear infection, complications from which will prevent him from performing. Tickets for these two shows will be honored for the rescheduled dates—Minneapolis: Wednesday, January 12 and St. Louis: Friday, January 14—and refunds are available at point of purchase.

"Osbourne's 2011 dates get underway January 16 in Omaha, NE. The six-week 2011 trek will include a pair of intimate shows: January 26 at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix and Feb 1 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. Ozzy’s longtime friend and musical collaborator Slash will open all the concerts on the second leg."
