Van Halen reunion tour fronted by David Lee Roth may be happening shortly with the release of guitarist Eddie Van Halen from rehab. The rock band will be compensating summer tour that fell previously with a fall tour.

According to Billboard, the band is eyeing some arenas and putting reservations on them for major cities gigs. Although no dates have been revealed, a complete tour schedule is expected to be announced in the coming weeks. If everything goes smoothly then the show will start in September.

This reunion has excluded bassist Michael Anthony who is not invited back following the rift during the band's 2004 tour with drummer Alex Van Halen. Anthony's post is now replaced by Eddie's 15-year-old son Wolfgang who is scheduled to be in the group for the tour only.

Eddie admitted himself to rehab this March just three days before Van Halen was to be conducted to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Ironically the members who were present for the ceremonies were Anthony and Sammy Hagar who won't join this reunion. The rehab stay also came to effect with 40-dates of North American tour which quickly invited disappointment upon being canceled.
