After all that build-up, the press conference, the reveal that Van Halen was coming back to Fresno and even a street name-change comes this news: The Van Halen concert, scheduled for Aug. 28 at Save Mart Center, is now being postponed.
Per concert promoter Live Nation:
The Van Halen show at Save Mart Center in Fresno, California will be temporarily postponed. Future dates to be announced. The on sale, originally scheduled for Monday, May 21 at 10 AM, is postponed.
Refunds are available at point of purchase.
The postponement signals something fishy in Van Halen land. The band ditched a number of dates, not just Fresno. No statement from Van Halen yet, though.
