A Van Halen Summer Vacation In Oshkosh
Van Halen will be performing at least one show in the U.S. this year. The band has been tapped as one of the headliners for this summer’s Rock USA festival in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Van Halen is scheduled to close out the four-day event, which will take place from July 17th through the 20th. The group caps off a lineup that also features Ratt, Jackyl, and Dokken. Avenged Sevenfold is the opening night headliner, while Bret Michaels will close out day two and Godsmack will provide the finale for day three.
Van Halen had promised to return to the U.S. stage this year, after scrapping the second leg of their 2012 tour. The band was expected to return to action last fall with a tour of Japan, but Eddie Van Halen’s health problems forced a change of plans. The Japanese tour has been rescheduled for June. Van Halen is also slated to play the Stone Music Festival in Sydney, Australia on April 20th.
