When Eddie Van Halen passed away in 2020, many Van Halen fans were crushed they would never get to see the band again. While a reunion without the legendary guitarist is unlikely, a tribute concert for the rock icon may soon be in the works.

Former Van Halen members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony recently discussed the possibility of a tribute show, saying “it's gonna happen.”

While nothing has been made official, the two former Van Halen members seem to be on board for whatever tribute is planned. In a recent interview, Hagar says “No one's really connected all the dots with everyone involved, but I have been told, and I have read interviews with various people involved — with Wolfie and Valerie and Eddie's wife that he was married to at the time — they all said as soon as this is over, we're gonna get everybody together and do a tribute or whatever; just a 'thank you,' a goodbye, a send-off. And that's an absolute must.”

Michael Anthony was on board as well, adding “we've got to celebrate the music — so much good music."

Hopefully this show happens soon, as it would be a great way to get back to live music in 2021.
