While no one in Van Halen has officially commented about 2011 tour plans, Australia’s new traveling music festival – Soundwave Revolution – stoked fans’ desires and needs when it announced it had snagged the band, including original frontman David Lee Roth, to headline a lineup that also features Alice Cooper, Bad Religion, Danzig, The Sisters Of Mercy, Panic! At The Disco and Hole.
General onsales for Soundwave Revolution begin this week and are broken down by city with Brisbane ducats going up for registered members May 24; Sydney May 25; Melbourne May 26 and Adelaide and Perth scheduled for May 27. All presales begin at 9 a.m. local time.
