    Billboard.com is reporting that in one week Van Halen will host a press conference in Hollywood to announce a 50-date American arena tour beginning in early October. This will be the first time original frontman David Lee Roth takes over vocal duties in the band in nearly 20 years. And while this appears to be a genuine reunion, the band will tour without its original bassist Michael Anthony.

    In his stead, Eddie Van Halen's son Wolfgang will take over. This proposed reunion has been months in the making but was delayed for multiple reasons including the guitarist's stint in a rehab center.

    As we reported earlier, the second Van Halen vocalist Sammy Hagar will tour as well along with the ousted bassist Anthony who will be touring under the moniker The Other Half. Can't we have all four members together again like the good ol' days?
