Shows Postponed as Eddie Van Halen Undergoes Medical Testing

Van Halen has postponed concerts this week as guitarist Eddie Van Halen undergoes medical testing for an undisclosed condition.

"According to Eddie Van Halen's physician, he is undergoing a battery of comprehensive medical tests to determine a defined diagnosis and recommended medical procedures," according to a statement released Monday by Van Halen's representative and the tour promoter, Live Nation.

Eddie Van Halen has had medical setbacks in recent years, including a battle with cancer and a trip to rehab. A representative for Van Halen did not return a phone message or e-mail from The Associated Press seeking further information about his ailment.

The concerts that were postponed were this week's shows in Dallas; Cincinnati; Raleigh, N.C.; and Baltimore. They have been rescheduled for April.

Van Halen embarked on their reunion tour with original lead singer David Lee Roth last fall.
