VIDEO: David Lee Roth explains tour postponement

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - After a surprise announcement Friday that Van Halen was postponing all tour dates after June 26, David Lee Roth posted a video explanation on Vimeo.

Postponed dates include the shows in Toledo, Detroit and Cleveland.

Roth taped the video in a pair of overalls from the woods at a nearby tour date in Minneapolis. He said the band is getting along fine. There was speculation the dates were canceled because the band couldn't get along. In fact, a source close to the band told Rolling Stone magazine that was the reason.

Roth, however, said in his own unique way that they simply over-scheduled themselves and could not produce quality shows for that long.
