Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Van Halen Named Artists To Watch in 2013

(hennemusic) The calendar has flipped into the New Year, and hennemusic has a look at the rock forecast for 2013.

01 - Rolling Stones: The Stones teased fans with a 5-date fall tour and there is plenty more where that came from. The band will tour in 2013 as they continue to mark their 50th anniversary; an April headlining date at Coachella was recently "leaked" by the group.

02 - Black Sabbath: The metal legends hit a few roadblocks in 2012: guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with cancer and underwent chemotherapy; a full tour schedule was reduced to three shows following Iommi's news and treatment; and, a contract dispute prevented drummer Bill Ward from rejoining his bandmates for live dates and the creation of new music. Sabbath are moving forward, nonetheless: a new album, produced by Rick Rubin, is scheduled for April, and the band begins touring with shows down under that same month.

03 - Van Halen: Another band that hit a major roadblock in 2012, with guitarist Eddie Van Halen undergoing surgery for a severe bout of Diverticulitis, an event that put the band on the sidelines for the last 6 months of the year. VH will return to live action in 2013, with a series of rescheduled Japanese dates set for June. Beyond that, bassist Wolfgang VH will tour with Alter Bridge/Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti's solo band throughout February but, other than that, nothing else has been revealed about VH's plans for the year. See the rest of the Top 10 here.
