Eddie Van Halen has been released from hospital after having undergone emergency surgery for diverticulitis. Eddie ended up spending three weeks in the hospital after some stitches popped post operation causing an infection. He is now on rest for the next 4 to 6 months.
Van Halen were supposed to tour Japan in the fall, but those dates are being rescheduled for next year. Earlier in the year Van Halen canceled all dates on their U.S. summer tour after June 26, citing the need for a break after 18 months spent recording, and the subsequent tour.
After being released from the hospital Eddie Van Halen has taken to Facebook to assure his fans of his ongoing successful recovery “Thank you for all of your cool comments! Hanging out, taking it easy and following the doctors orders.”
