Following-up the wildly successful Monsters of Rock ‘89, Van Halen will be headlining another stadium tour of topnotch hard rock acts this summer. Already pledging to join them are veterans The Scorpions and Dokken, plus a reunited Kingdom Come. “We’ve gotta show some of these new so-called rock bands out there like Pearl Jam or Poison how to really rock,” said bassist Jeff Pilson of Dokken. The pressure is on for Van Halen to find a new lead singer before the tour kicks off in May. “We wanted that guy from Journey,” said Alex Van Halen, “but I guess he quit singing a few years back. I dunno, maybe Phil Collins is available?”
