Van Halen has abruptly postponed more than 30 summer tour dates after June 26th, with no explanation for why.

Rolling Stone reports that the band has canceled more than 30 long-anticipated shows, including Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland, Salt Lake City, and El Paso.

According to David Berger with The Salt Lake Tribune, he received a message from United Concerts, saying:

"The Van Halen show at Energy Solutions Arena Tuesday September 4th will be temporarily postponed. Future dates to be announced. The on sale for this Friday May 18th is also postponed. We apologize for any inconvenience."
"Future dates to be announced."
"You want to know the absolute fuckin' truth? I have no fuckin' idea."
"The band is arguing like mad. They are fighting."
"It's selling pretty good – I don't know why they would say it's being canceled."
"We're selling really well. We're looking forward to it."
