Former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar has confirmed that ex-Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony was contacted by the band’s management six months ago about reuniting with the group for a tour. A recent rumor has suggested that the original Van Halen lineup — including Anthony, who has not played with the band since 2004 — will reunite in 2019 for a run of stadium shows. This would be the first time that the four founding members of the band, including singer David Lee Roth, guitarist Eddie Van Halen and drummer Alex Van Halen, perform together since 1984.
