 Former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony has shot down rumors that he will rejoin the band for a reunion tour next summer.

A new rumor has suggested that the original Van Halen lineup — including Anthony, who has not played with the band since 2004 — will reunite in 2019 for a stadium tour. This would be the first time that the four founding members of the band, including singer David Lee Roth, guitarist Eddie Van Halen and drummer Alex Van Halen, perform together since 1984.

Premiere Radio Networks, a division of iHeartRadio, reached out to Anthony as the rumors gained more steam.

“The only comment I have is that I haven’t spoken to any of the guys since we last played together back in 2004,” Anthony told Premiere.

He added that while he did speak to Alex Van Halen on the phone “a few years back,” the two didn’t get into anything more than small talk.

The rumors stem from a recent interview Roth did, as well as a report from radio personality Eddie Trunk. Roth hinted to Vulture that the band would “come back through town in the summertime and do the original thing, maybe somewhere sportin’, maybe with somebody famous…. next time my rock band will be playing the same place that the Yankees play.”

Van Halen and Anthony have not been on good terms for more than a decade, with Anthony not invited to join the reunion with Roth that began in 2007. The subsequent two tours and studio album, “A Different Kind Of Truth”, featured Eddie’s son Wolfgang on bass.
