Update: According to a report on TMZ this afternoon, a source close to Van Halen says the band canceled the shows because "They're simply burned out" ... adding, "They want to make sure their concerts are not a routine ... they want every performance to be special."

Van Halen have canceled 30 dates on their summer tour without any explanation.

The iconic hard rock troupe has canned every show after their New Orleans concert on June 26 including stops in major markets like Milwaukee, Detroit Cleveland and Salt Lake City.

Although promoters in each of the canceled cities have alerted their local media contacts about the change, Van Halen have yet to offer a reason for the move. Naturally, the Internet is abuzz with rumors that there is tension within the group.

One insider told RollingStone.com said, "The band is arguing like mad. They are fighting." Any talk about the dates being canceled due to soft tickets sales has been dismissed by the promoters who said their respective shows were either sold out or close to it.

Van Halen is out on tour in support of A Different Kind of Truth, their first album with David Lee Roth on vocals since their landmark 1984 release.
