Former VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar says that there has been “no confirmation” about Michael Anthony reuniting with the band for a tour.
“There is no confirmation about a VH tour,” Hagar said: “I ain’t here to tell you ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ if it’s gonna happen or not gonna happen. But Mikey is my dearest friend in the world. He’s my favorite bass player and singer on the planet to be in a band with. And we will continue to be in a band our whole life. But if there was an opportunity for him to go play in VAN HALEN again, just to mend that up, just to keep that sour note from being in his head for the rest of his life, he has my blessings. I will take the time off while he goes and does it. We’ve already talked about it. But there is nothing confirmed. I can tell you straight-up right now — there has been nothing confirmed.”
Sammy continued: “I ain’t gonna say it is or isn’t [gonna happen], because it’s not my place. Right now, we’re gonna go out and promote [THE CIRCLE album] that we made together, and we’re gonna do some shows. And then as soon as these shows are done and we figure [out] what we wanna do, we’ll go book some more and then keep doing it. ‘Cause Mikey is… He’s in THE CIRCLE. He’s my bass player. He’s my fellow singer. He’s my bandmate. He’s my dear friend. He’s my soul brother.”
