    David Lee Roth To Address Superbowl Rumors

    David Lee Roth To Address Superbowl Rumors
    JULY 3, 2012 LEAVE A COMMENT

    VHND.COM


    It all started with a quote from Eddie Van Halen; “In November, we’ll hit Japan, and in the new year, we’ll possibly do something special, but I can’t talk about it.”
    This quote kicked off rampant rumors that “something special” might mean that Van Halen could be the band considered to play the Superbowl halftime show next February. Keep in mind, rumors of Van Halen playing the Superbowl are nothing new – their name pops up annually as a potential performer.
    It seems to be Van Halen’s protocol never to address rumors. We at the Van Halen News Desk have never commented on the Superbowl rumors either, as they have never been anything other than fan’s wishful thinking. This year was originally no different – we weren’t planning on addressing the rumors without first hearing something either way from our trusted inside sources. But wouldn’t you know, our sources now tell us that David Lee Roth is indeed going to publically address the Superbowl rumors within the next few days. Now, that sounds interesting! (Dare we say it sounds “promising”?)
    We’ll speculate that if (and that’s a big “if”!) Van Halen actually ends up playing the Superbowl next year, we think they would almost certainly tour right afterwords. The Superbowl is a humongous opportunity for publicity on the biggest television sports event in the US, so it wouldn’t make sense for the band not to tour afterwords.
    In fact, 114 million people tuned to in to watch Madonna perform at the halftime show this year. The last 3 Superbowls now sit at one, two, and three on the most viewed programs list in TV history. And as David Lee Roth has said, on any given day, you can walk into any hockey arena or football stadium throughout the country and you’ll hear Van Halen’s music blaring to get the crowd pumped up. So Van Halen and the Superbowl would go together like peanut butter and jelly.
    Could 2013 be another huge year for Van Halen? That would really be something, considering the fact that 2012 is such a stellar year in their carreer, with the release of their critically acclaimed masterpiece, A Different Kind Of Truth, and their hugely successful 48 city US tour which just wrapped up last week.
    Stay tuned…

    If they do manage to get on there, I think that might be the first half time show I will be watching in years.
    Ready, Eddie!

    If they do get the gig, Dave better sing the songs straight and not embarrass VH Nation in front of the whole world.

    I wonder if they'll lip sync.

    Okay, I'm off to perish that blasphemous though now.
    Ready, Eddie!

    Dave will bring his "A" game to that kind of performance and they most certainly wont be in the middle of a rigorous tour so he'll have his voice in shape if they do indeed play the SB.

    I did a little checking on this.I thought the NFL announced this during hall of fame week,aparently not.The official announcement comes from the NFL and the city it's played in first,in the first week of December usually.So they can have a press conference and party or whatever.
    I wouldn't think the NFL would want this info revealed yet.
