We heard earlier in the week that Creed/Alter Bridge/Tremonti bassist Brian Marshall had dropped off of the Mark Tremonti solo tour for 'personal reasons'. We also heard that with one day's notice, Wolfie Van Halen was able to learn the Tremonti setlist and stand in for Marshall at the opening night show in New York.

Well, now - according to the Van Halen News Desk - it appears that with Van Halen on hiatus due to Eddie Van Halen's recent surgery, Wolfie will be playing with Tremonti for the entire tour - including the Shreveport date at the Riverside Warehouse on October 5th. Just another reason to score tickets now for what was already going to be a phenomenal show. Get advanced tickets now through Outhouse Tickets. A little preview of what you're going to see:
