Sammy Hagar & Michael Anthony Want A VAN HALEN Tribute Show To Happen

While you shouldn't expect a new version of Van Halen to surface, a tribute show appears to be in the cards at some point.

According to ex-vocalist Sammy Hagar and ex-bassist Michael Anthony in an interview with Q104.3, a tribute show is absolutely going to happen. Hagar said the show would be a send-off to Eddie Van Halen and nothing more.

"It's gotta happen. Of course it's gonna happen," he said. "No one's really connected all the dots with everyone involved, but I have been told, and I have read interviews with various people involved — with Wolfie and Valerie and Eddie's wife that he was married to at the time — they all said as soon as this is over, we're gonna get everybody together and do a tribute or whatever; just a 'thank you,' a goodbye, a send-off.

"And that's an absolute must. I don't care if it takes 10 years — that will happen. And if we're available to do it, we'll do it." Michael added: "We've got to celebrate the music — so much good music."

Given everyone was on the same page for one final Van Halen tour, it makes sense a show like this would happen. Though the real question is who the group would get to fill in on guitar? I'd imagine it would be a rotating cast of legendary guitarists given the high profile of Van Halen and Eddie's unreal playing, but who knows.
