Van Halen has canceled most of its summer tour, which included a stop July 7 at Mohegan Sun. There’s been no official word why, but there’s talk the family Van Halen and singer David Lee Roth are at each other’s throats again. Roth has said the group is merely trying to stave off exhaustion and will reschedule. For now, refunds are available at point of purchase.
