The Balance Tour was a concert tour by hard rock Van Halen promoting their album Balance. It was dubbed the "Ambulance" Tour by Eddie Van Halen due to his hip surgery, and his brother, drummer Alex Van Halen wearing a neck brace for most of the tour. Consequently, Eddie was a lot more static on stage. This would be the group's last tour with Sammy Hagar on vocals until 2004, when he briefly rejoined the band for a summer tour. The opening night in Pensacola, and a combination of footage from the Toronto shows were broadcast Pay-Per-View.

The band had not performed any shows as an opening act in over a decade, but opened for veteran act Bon Jovi for several dates on this tour. This shocked fans, since typically only lesser known bands do support slots. Skid Row opened for Van Halen as well.
