The return of Alex Van Halen?

Legendary rock band Van Halen are rumoured to be holding a press conference in the next week to announce a tour featuring the (almost) original lineup, including David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen, who recently checked into rehab.

Rumours surfaced that the band was back earlier this year but fizzled out following Eddie Van Halen's admission to rehab. Since then, Stateside venues have hinted that a handful of shows had already been booked and the band is back.

Keep your eyes peeled for dates. Maybe we will get a chance to see Alex Van Halen rip through 'Hot For Teacher' one last time?
