Van Halen are secretly plotting a 2011 tour, according to the band's manager Irving Azoff.
Azoff let the news slip in his capacity as Live Nation Ticketmaster chairman at a concert promoters meeting on Monday (04Oct10), according to RollingStone.com.
Van Halen, with frontman David Lee Roth, last toured together in 2008 - a tour which grossed $93 million (GBP62 million) for Live Nation.
However, before fans break open their piggy banks in the hope of landing the first tickets, it should be noted that Azoff also promised a 2010 Van Halen outing last year (09), but that never came to fruition.
