    Rescheduling makes it sound like they're counting on a quick resolution to whatever is ailing Eddie. I'll be surprised if it works out so expediently.

    "Besides the rumored internal band tension, recent reports also suggested that the reason for the tour's cancellation is the guitarist's poor performance, as he appeared to be intoxicated during the band's latest gigs."

    Van Halen scraps more shows amid mystery ailment

    Tue Mar 11, 4:16 AM ET

    Rock band Van Halen's reunion tour fell into disarray on Monday when it announced it would postpone all shows through April 19 while guitarist Eddie Van Halen undergoes tests for an unspecified medical condition.

    The news came a week after the group postponed four shows for the same reason.

    Seventeen shows are now affected, beginning Tuesday in Charlottesville, Va., and running through April 15 in Baltimore, which was one of the four postponed last week. The next scheduled show is set for April 19 in Las Vegas.

    According to organizers, Van Halen, 53, who has battled cancer and substance abuse, "is currently under doctors' care" and will "continue medical tests to define a course of treatment." No further details were made available.

    Fans are being asked to keep their tickets, which will be honored at makeup dates to be announced.

    Van Halen returned to the road last fall with original lead singer David Lee Roth for the first time in 20-plus years. The tour, which features Eddie Van Halen's teenage son Wolfgang on bass in place of co-founder Michael Anthony, has routinely sold out North American arenas.

    In other words, don't hold your breath.
