I would go see Sammy and Michael open up for them and then leave before the main act.

People at work are all coming up to me asking if I heard about the tour and if I'm going. They all assume that because I'm into rock and metal I must love Van Halen and want to see them. :lol:

Little do they know that you only know a handful of bands... and Van Halen's back catalog is still on your to-do list. :P

No worries, though, Billster. We'll keep working on you. :wink:

It still sounded pretty good overall... Dave certainly sounded pretty good. 8)

Wolfie's background shouting was a poor substitute for Mike, though... especially on some of the other tunes I flipped through. :?

Saw about 45 min of the show on Sat as they started early. WTF ?? Not going into a review but sound was crisp and sharp. Dave's voice held out and was clearer then the last time I saw them although he wasn't stretching out words rather then saying each one out, if you can figure that out. They have a massive screen that is in the backdrop that covers the entire stage which projects what is going on the stage. Pretty nice. Stage was stripped right down to bare bones. No bells and whistles or interesting goodies at all. Ed only played his signature guitar no switching. GAY. Wolfie has absolutely zero stage presence. He stood there on one spot staring off into space the entire show. Lovely. The T shirt selection was beyond lame. Wasn't even interested in grabbing one period. Price was 40.00 a pop. My buddy in Van said that Roth was forgetting words to the new songs and the sound was terrible. Eddie didn't sign in Seattle , or Vancovuer. I was thinking about going the next morning and then said waste of my time and didn't bother.

I was supposed to go see Lee Aaron and Harlequin on Sat but wasn't up to it. Next up Nickelback, Seether and Bush on Tues. Should be a good show. And yes I have to go early this time. Uhhhhhhhh :?

Well, at least the show was good musically. That's half the battle... and a big "maybe" where Van Halen is concerned. :wink:
