The on-again, off-again VAN HALEN reunion tour wound up grossing more that $93 million for 74 concerts. The LIVE NATION-promoted tour ended JUNE 2nd in GRAND RAPIDS, MI, and the band played to close to 1 million people.
This marked the first VAN HALEN tour with 15 year-old bassist WOLFGANG VAN HALEN on board joining father guitarist EDDIE VAN HALEN and uncle drummer ALEX VAN HALEN. It also marked the return of singer DAVID LEE ROTH to the fold, and was the first tour without bassist MARK ANTHONY, who was unceremoniously canned due to his kinship with previously ousted singer SAMMY HAGAR.
Throughout its run, the VAN HALEN tour consistently ranked among the top concert events based on ticket sales, according to TICKETNEWS's exclusive weekly event rankings.
