According to TMZ, Eddie Van Halen is planning to attend tonight's (Monday, October 21) TOOL concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles, and "he's super stoked to see the band rock out."
There have been a lot of rumors regarding the VAN HALEN guitarist's supposedly worsening health, including a recent report from TMZ stating he is battling throat cancer. According to the gossip site's story, Van Halen has been traveling between the U.S. and Germany for treatment going on several years now. The site now says that "the sad medical news had some folks thinking Eddie was on his death bed ... but we're told that's anything but the case."
As previously reported, Eddie stopped by a McLaren dealership in Beverly Hills on Saturday and mingled with the sales team, taking pictures and even giving one fan a kiss.
A rep for Van Halen had no comment on TMZ's initial report when reached by Fox News.
Earlier this year, rumors were rampant that the classic-era lineup of VAN HALEN would reunite for the first time since 1984. It's unclear why the tour didn't happen, though there has been online chatter that a health setback involving Eddie Van Halen might have been responsible.
VAN HALEN has been inactive since it completed its U.S. tour in October 2015 in Los Angeles, California.
