VAN HALEN Forced To Postpone Japanese Tour Due To A Medical Emergency - Official Statement Available!
The VAN HALEN camp have released the following statement:
"Eddie Van Halen underwent an emergency surgery for a severe bout of diverticulitis. No further surgeries are needed and a full recovery is expected within four - six months.
"VAN HALEN's scheduled November 2012 tour of Japan is currently being rescheduled and the band looks forward to seeing and playing for their fans in 2013."
Diverticulosis happens when pouches (diverticula) form in the wall of the colon. If these pouches get inflamed or infected, it is called diverticulitis. Diverticulitis can be very painful. (Source: WebMD). We wish Eddie a speedy recovery!
