Well, if I win a lottery, this will be the one I'm at. Unfortunately, being a starving student means no money for FUN!...Does the Army need a rep at this show? Anyone want to adopt me? :hail::pray:

With the date change to the 13th, I hope that they will add a North Dakota show as they have a 6 day break before St Paul on the 19th.

This is the one closest to me, how I wish I could be there! The worst part about being a student is having no money for the fun stuff. :(

You know, we could pass the plate and send you to a show. I know, you wouldn't want that. But seriously, why the hell not??

That's very sweet of you, but I'm still holding out hope they'll add more dates and come here.

If they go to Saskatoon (and looking at where bands play, they mostly opt for there and not Regina) would that be close enough for you to go?

Sure would. I can't see them playing Regina unless it's the stadium, and I can't see Dave risking the cold winds that we can get. Saskatoon's only a 2 hour drive. I'll be there should they happen to add it. :)

Romeo, you're in? Don't ruin your enjoyment of the show over posting here, but any updates you can give would be great. Particularly:

Is #4 spot Romeo or Full Bug?
Is #18 spot Girl Gone Bad or Outta Love Again

Plus any other surprises. Like if Hear About It Later or The Trouble With Never get replaced again (like they did that last week of March with Jamie's Cryin' and Blood and Fire). Also if a new song to the tour gets played.

When I was at the Washington, D.C. show, I saw Dave's tour bus go in the back garage of the Verizon Center around 7:30 local time. Dave travels completely separately from the Van Halens with his own tour bus and arrangements and doesn't do soundchecks. So check when that one tweet was posted. If it was around 7:30 Central time then I think it's legit.

what a waste of a seat! How can you say this when you are seeing the mighty Van Halen!!

Wow...just wow.

I have some advice for all of you. Take thee to the floor no matter what the cost. I couldn't believe how good the sound was.

Dave is probably sounding better than ever...straight up. I was blown away.

I actually recorded more than a few songs, although it was with a crappy phone. Still, I was pretty close so at the very least you see the screen and some decent sound.

Pretty funny as I was frantically deleting family videos to make room for the tunes (no idea my card was near full)

Sat next to a family from Thunder Bay who brought their late teen kids to see the mighty Halen...the kid next to me said that other music today is "just noise"

Asked the Mom if they would adopt me...she said "absolutely!!" Not sure how the Dad felt, lol.

What a great night. The crowd was amped up pre and post

I don't know if my experience was that much better because of the floor seats, but the boys were so on, it was crazy!!

Hey thanks. I've made it 2 shows without changing it...I think it was annoying people, so I'll leave it for a while.

What was annoying people? Your beautiful face? Assholes.

Romeo, you're in? Don't ruin your enjoyment of the show over posting here, but any updates you can give would be great. Particularly:

Is #4 spot Romeo or Full Bug?
Is #18 spot Girl Gone Bad or Outta Love Again

Plus any other surprises. Like if Hear About It Later or The Trouble With Never get replaced again (like they did that last week of March with Jamie's Cryin' and Blood and Fire). Also if a new song to the tour gets played.

Full Bug...Outta Love..Hear About it Later!!! What a show!!!

Aging rockers Van Halen can still bring it

David Lee Roth may not be able to jump like he used to, but he’s still got some moves.

These days the Van Halen frontman favours the shimmy, shake, slide and spin instead of the above-the-head kicks and air splits he was famous for in his younger days, although he still pulled off a few leaps and kicks during the band’s stop at the MTS Centre on Sunday night.

He is 57 after all, so that’s to be expected, as was his flashy outfit that looked like he picked it up at Liberace’s garage sale: a sparkly blue and red jacket, leather pants, a black vest and satin blue shirt. And he never failed to deliver a whole lot of head-scratching and/or hilarious quotes that seemed to come from a part of his brain far away from the 30-odd years of lyrics rattling around in there.

Some examples:

❚ "We're going to hell in a bowl full of cherries."

❚ While talking about a drum beat that sounded like an old beer commercial he suddenly ended the conversation with: "No metaphysics before happy hour. I'll probably lie to you again before the evening is over."

❚ "I made a sex tape in 1982 and I was a 1982 sexy mother (lover)."

❚ While talking to a fan in the crowd: "I might be your Goddamn father. You look familiar."

❚ During a cover of Roy Orbison's Oh, Pretty Woman he stopped the song and gave a fan grief for throwing something on stage. "Wait a minute, wait a minute. Don't throw your garbage up on stage; throw your girlfriend up, (bad word insult)."

Oh yeah, he's still full of spunk and both he and the veteran California band were in fine form for a crowd of about 8,000. Official attendance wasn't released for the show, but the arena was set up in its full configuration and there were plenty of unused seats. With a top ticket price of $165, Van Halen might have overestimated their value in today's market.

The money wasn't spent on production. The simple setup included only a large video screen behind the band showing black and white images of the action on stage, replays of that action (you could see Roth pretending his fingers were guns twice), still photos and the band's logo. There were some steps leading up to a drum riser and bass amps, but as far as arena rock spectacles go, this ranked low on the spectacle scale.

Not that it really mattered in the end, since it was hard-rock nostalgia we were there for and hard-rock nostalgia we got.

Reviews of the tour have been mixed, but Winnipeg appears to have caught the band on a good night with Roth and the Van Halens — guitarist Eddie, drummer Alex and bassist Wolfgang (who replaced original member Michael Anthony in 2006) — offering up 22 tracks and two solos in nearly two hours.

Eddie is known for his "brown sound," but everything about his style Sunday was colourful, from the recognizable riffs and the speedy solos to his whammy bar dive bombs and his legendary tapping. He smiled through much of the night and was in fine form while harmonizing with his son Wolfgang and Roth.

The band is touring on the new release, A Different Kind of Truth, and offered up four tracks from it, but otherwise the material focused on the albums recorded with Roth from 1978-84.

The band took the stage and launched into Unchained off Fair Warning before revisiting their 1978 self-titled debut with Runnin' With the Devil. Other early highlights included Everybody Wants Some!! and Somebody Get Me a Doctor.

Things started lagging in the energy department about 40 minutes in with the new China Town, Oh, Pretty Woman, a drum solo and the Kinks' You Really Got Me, but things picked up again with Dance the Night Away, I'll Wait and Hot for Teacher, which had Roth working up a huge sweat while dancing around the stage.

In one of the show's strangest bits, Roth stood alone on stage plucking an acoustic guitar while talking about his sheep-herding dogs while videos of them played behind him.

"I love dogs! Is anybody with me here?" he asked before introducing everyone to his pets — including one from Manitoba — and talking about his hobby and his vehicles.

"I own three pickup trucks. There are no other cars in the garage."

The story led into a full-throttle version of Ice Cream Man followed by the party anthem Panama before Eddie was left alone for his nearly 10-minute solo and the guitar god showed he is still a master by playing clean, distorted, making weird noises by messing with the volume knob, tapping and climaxing with Eruption, arguably one of the best known guitar solos in rock 'n' roll.

The strong finish concluded with Ain't Talking 'Bout Love and Jump. During the final song Roth didn't do any jumping, but spun a microphone stand around like a baton before confetti shot into the air.

In an odd bit of counter-programming, Kool & the Gang were hand-picked by Roth to open the show and treated a sparse crowd to a 50-minute set of funk, R&B, disco and pop.

The 10-piece group has been together in various incarnations since the mid 1960s and are still led by brothers Robert "Kool" Bell on bass and Ronald Bell on saxophone. It took about half the set for the crowd to get into it, but the people who were there were treated to a tight, energetic set by a hard-working band that played nothing but hits, including Hollywood Swinging, Jungle Boogie, Get Down On It, Ladies Night and the wedding/social staple Celebration, which had some people dancing in their seats and singing along.

I don't think "Jump" should be listed as an encore. It's not a fucking encore unless they walk off the stage and the crowd cheers enough to make them come back....I miss the old days...

I agree that it's not really an encore unless everything goes dark and you have to cheer, etc. However, that kind of stuff is just going through the motions for the large bands--they're going to come back on stage regardless of what the audience does, it's all mapped out. To me a true encore is something that's not on the official setlist, and the band makes an unplanned entrance back on stage and almost HAS to play something due to the audience's demand.

The true definition of a Van Halen encore was Eddie coming out playing "Growth", then leading into either ATBL or YRGM....

Some really cool things about the show:

Dave and Ed were having a grand time during Alex's solo. They were with Wolf just to Al's right and laughing and having a blast it seemed.

It was pretty funny when the girl jumped onstage. Dave just stood there and waited for the girl to kiss him. The security was pretty late to come and when they did, they knew there was no threat and were quite gentle. Not sure how she got across the divide between the wall and the stage. I don't think you can jump that but maybe she climed over the first wall and then up onto the stage? not sure

It was prety cool hearing the other setlist.

So that is show 3 for me (Thanks VA, Pojo, Sarge, et all) and I am just getting warmed up.

I think I said it was a 3 show minimum tour before it started...now it's 5!

She wasn't wearing chaps and leather panties was she? Remember the plant during the Diamond Dave tour?
