The Metal Box is a weekly web series posted each Friday where we discuss all things hard rock and heavy metal: news, videos, interviews, live concerts and more.

This week, we talk about a story that has surfaced regarding Van Halen reuniting with bassist Michael Anthony and possibly Sammy Hagar for a 40th anniversary tour in 2018. Watch video above. Van Halen formed out of Pasadena, California in 1972 featuring Eddie along with singer David Lee Roth, drummer Alex Van Halen and bassist Michael Anthony. The band became one of the most successful rock acts of all time, being one of only five rock bands to have two studio albums sell over 10 million copies in the U.S. and they are the 19th best selling band/artist in U.S. history according to the RIAA.

Van Halen were inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
