    Is the whole set available somewhere?

    And just as an aside, why do they have to dress so colorless? Roth jazz's it up a little, but look at this new pic of the Stones

    They don't look silly to me, still look like stars.

    It can't be "Van Halen" without Roth, any more than it can be "Van Halen" without Eddie.

    He hasn't aged a bit lol. Just a bit off topic but back in when he was starting out in the mid south area I would hear reports of him getting into the{more than occasional}bar fight around these parts. He still looks like he could swing a mean stick.

    Back to VH.
    They look and sound much better then the last 2 tours. I just wish Roth would ditch the Fred Sanford hat. Watching them last night has made me reconsider driving 3 hours to see them In Dallas.

    With apologies for jacking this thread, he was a super nice guy.
    Extremely courteous, polite, and generous with his time.
    He's also massive.
    I'm just shy of six feet and he was waaay bigger than me, and in muscular good shape.
    I've got big hands too, and he had the most massive hand I've ever shook.

    Back to VH.
    I wasn't going to see this tour, but my wife says she's getting tickets so I guess I'm going.
    They are going to be playing the PNC Arts Center in NJ which is my favorite venue to see bands.
    Maybe we'll go for tickets in the first couple of rows.
    It's a lot more fun when you're right up close.

    The good news is that Edward looks fantastic & is playing extremely well.
    Musically, you will be hearing a really tight band.

    Dave will be hit or miss (most likely "miss," but what can ya do?)

    I'll certainly have a good time.
    It's not a though I'll be sitting or standing there not enjoying it.
    I'm kind of glad they did this Kimmel thing. (watched it on youtube)
    It looks like they're putting more into the staging - if this is any indication of what they'll be using - this time around than last time.
    If we can get right up front it'll be a lot of fun.
    I've been in second or third row for Dio, Sorpions, and Styx at this venue - and it's really cool when you're right there face to face with guys in a band you've followed for decades.

    Do a trio, i don't care at this point.
    You've got mountains of skill at your disposal.
    Write something.
    Brothers Van Halen poop skill. It's the desire that they lack.

    I'm so thankful that I had the pleasure of seeing CVH in their prime. Thank the Maker!

    Seeing them now just reinforces my believe that Rock N Roll is a young mans game, period.

    Dave is going to be Dave. It seems as if Eddie and Alex are cool with it.

    I was wrong in a earlier post.

    I don't believe that they are hanging Dave out to dry. Maybe the opposite?

    Reading all the negative posts about Dave is sad. I would think, the band, at some point are going to have to address it. IMO, Dave hasn't figured out his place yet. In his prime he could get away with not singing his best. His showmanship and the physical nature of his craft made him one of the best rock stars ever. However, it had a shelve life, like that of any pro athlete. The drinking and smoking doesn't help. He has to sing better now. When I saw them in 2007. Two things struck me that night. 1. My God did I miss Eddie and Alex. 2. David had never sounded better. He sang I'll Wait better then he did in 1984. Saw them in 2012 and it was night and day. Some of it had to with my alcohol consumption and the piss poor acoustics in the building. Still, Dave did not sound all that good. Not sure what happened.

    Eddie and Alex don't seem to care what everyone thinks about them or their lead singer. See the 2015 release of a live album, the clothes they wear, the lack of new music, no releasing of vaulted live video, etc. This is what they are going to. It's our way or NO way.

    Maybe it's a good thing. It's as if the are hanging on to Dave come hell or high water.

    Why?

    As of today, I'm going to pass. They kick off their tour here, the day after the 4th of July.

    Anyway, I just don't feel it.

    Wife and I are planning to see Rush that month. With that being said, my wife has been cranking the VH lately. BTW, I think that is so hot. I get a big smile on my face when I catch my Ol' lady signing to I'm The One.

    Hmmm....Van Halen, outdoor venue, July 5th, wife, friends and alcohol? That does sound good.
