Van Halen reschedules yet again

Van Halen fans are hoping the third time is the charm. After backing out on their original John Paul Jones Arena date just hours before showtime on February 22, and nixing their make-up date of March 11, the veteran rockers have rescheduled all 19 of their postponed dates, including their Charlottesville show, which will now take place Friday, May 2, according to a press release.

Why all the switcheroos? After rumors that the band was canceling the tour outright hit the Internet, Van Halen issued a statement on March 2: "According to [guitarist] Eddie Van Halen's physician, he is undergoing a battery of comprehensive medical tests to determine a defined diagnosis and recommended medical procedures."

The Rock 'n Roll Hall of Famers will try again to get the show on the road on Saturday, April 19 at Tiger Woods' "TigerJam" charity benefit in Las Vegas, followed by the band's first arena gig three nights later at Cincinnati's U.S. Bank Arena.
