There have been plenty of rumors regarding Van Halen playing the Super Bowl next year in New Orleans. But the rumors are just rumors. VH vocalist David Lee Roth addressed the rumors via an eloquent ‘open letter.’ Roth noted that the rumors are false. However, he noted that the band would be honored to play the mega-event in a New York minute, if they were invited.
VH would be following in the footsteps of such legendary rockers as The Who, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, who delivered great sets at the Super Bowl. Interesting stuff since Van Halen cancelled a number of summer shows. Roth said the shows were deep-sixed since the band bit off more than it could chew. Fans wondered if there was more strife within the ranks but apparently that’s not the case.
