Report: VAN HALEN Suing BALTIMORE ORIOLES For $2 Million

E! Online is reporting that VAN HALEN's touring company is suing the Baltimore Orioles for $2 million for reneging on a deal to allow the band to play a concert at Oriole Park early next month. No further information is available at this time.

In other news, Hagar's VAN HALEN bandmates Eddie and Alex Van Halen are rumored to be performing at Sammy's annual "Birthday Bash" celebration on October 13 at the Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. An official confirmation is expected soon.

Also on the VAN HALEN front, Southern rockers LAIDLAW have been confirmed to open the third leg of the band's North American tour, which is scheduled to kick off September 3 in Atlantic City, NJ. LAIDLAW guitarist Craig DeFalco told that Eddie had personally invited the band along for the ride. Craig has a previous connection with VAN HALEN, having worked as Michael Anthony's bass tech for several years. He left to form LAIDLAW, who were soon after brought to the limelight by MÖTLEY CRÜE's Nikki Sixx via his AmeriComa record label. The band have a brand new self-titled album out now— available online via their web site, and in Europe through Z-Roxx. Download an MP3 of the track "Fly Away" at this location.
