    Being that they can't use the the stage like they used too when they were young,it's really a non-factor too me.Ya,it's cool to have a great stage but at this point 'sound' should be top priority.Doesn't matter how much is spent on a stage if the sound is awful.
    Yeah, well if you read what I said, I want them to have good sound too, but they are NEVER gonna get a good sound in a hockey rink. So if they wanna make it "all about the music", then play theaters so we can truly appreciate their musicianship.
    It can't be "Van Halen" without Roth, any more than it can be "Van Halen" without Eddie.

    I changed my mind a little bit. Just watched some more footage today and last night and take back some of my criticism.

    The stage is NOT completely downright cheap. It is beautiful, elegant and sleek.

    The neat and tidy bare bones approach emphasises the musicianship and personality's of all 4 performers. The sound and performance is all that matters with highly talented players, and that is what I want, regardless of the ticket price.

    The big screen is GIGANTIC, and must of cost a bundle. So they really should use it to their maximum advantage, with more exciting footage and colorfully creative graphics to create a unique concert atsmophere, is all I initially meant so say in my previous critical posts. Wouldn't mind seeing a huge VH logo up there, and maybe some of Dave' s artwork or something. I spend most of the time with my eyes glued to Eddie anyways.

    Remember their old quote, " If you can't do it under a single lightbulb, then you can't do it at all ". They could just have 1 giant lightbulb, and that would be fine with me. But of course, I do love those old stages, they were my favorite, that's for sure.

    If they did something bigger, I'd be o.k. with that too. Either way, it doesn't get much better for me than Van Halen live. Tonight, I've been watching the Chicago show for the first time that I recall, and highly recommend it.

    I ran across a cool rock photographer's gallery last night with some shots I hadn't seen before.

    Completely agree, POP.

    I felt like they really had their sound together, and the guys felt comfortable with that stage.
    I envision them saying, "Let's make the spectacle the music, on this tour. Let's get out there and play for the people."

    Gonna have to disagree there. Again, it depends on where you are sitting and how much you want to get the good seats at a lot of the bigger venues, but I wouldnt say it is impossible to get a good sound experience. Unless, you are up in the nosebleed, than yes, probably not gonna get good sound no matter what venue.

    I think they should play in their dressing room, and just pump the sound out into the completely darkened hockey rink. You shallow, superficial fucks, why do you need to SEE the band? It's all about the MUSIC!

    Absolutely! Rock n' roll and chamber orchestras should be an identical experience. Dave was out there turning cartwheels and doing sword dances with midgets because he was young and foolish. Now he knows he should probably just sit in a folding chair and close his eyes and really get into the music, man. And charge $120, but never mind that.

    They have had bigger and better. But this stage still has the VH vibe.

    The 2012 stage had a club vibe which was perfect for VH returning to their roots .

    Hmmm, this is a point of view I hadnt even thought of, but it makes perfect sense!
