Hey all - I'm back!!! So - I know I need to post this in the NJ show thread, but since I'm here, I might as well share. My hubby got me (and him) FRONT FUCKING ROW for the NJ show for mom's day. Not through VIP, but through Ticketmaster premium seats. The reason I know today is cause I was watching those tix like a hawk - they were expensive, so we were back and forth on whether to buy, so I kept them minimized on the computer and kept refreshing every couple of hours. I got to work today and checked the site this am, only to find them gone. So I called my husband all depressed and left him a message that we fucked up and waited too long and now we lost them. He called back about 5 minutes later to say that they were gone cause he got them, and that he was gonna surprise me for mom's day but that I sounded so depressed he couldn't let me be that upset for 2 more days!

Why do people go if they are going to post this shit? I can remember when I went to the Motley Crue "Carnival of Sins" tour in New Orleans back in 2005. I was in line next to this guy bragging about all the times he'd seen them in the 80s...I'd seen them the same times. We got through the doors at the same time...we walked into the arena. He saw the size of the stage and he commented like, "Figures they'd try to fill this place with the size of their stage..." with a chuckle. I go to shows of my teenage faves to relive a happy place from my past. Some buy tickets just to pick it apart and make fun as if they are too cool to be there...but in reality not too cool to buy the ticket. Fucking morons.

On the average the bulk of people that tweet are usually shitheads. This one (@talkingsauce ) is no exception. Sounds like his ticket was given to him. That's the worst. Prick doesn't deserve to share the same air as the mighty VH. He's probably pissed Simple Plan or Hedley isn't on the bill.

Van Halen erupts at Rexall 3

BY MIKE ROSS ,EDMONTON SUN
FIRST POSTED: FRIDAY, MAY 11, 2012 11:30 PM MDT | UPDATED: FRIDAY, MAY 11, 2012 11:37 PM MDT

The true value of a rock ’n’ roll reunion is how long the band stays reunited — without wearing out its welcome a second time.

Van Halen, now five years into what will come to be called the “Wolfgang Period” — Eddie’s son having replaced bassist Michael Anthony around the time David Lee Roth came back — played Rexall Place Friday night and sounded as if they’d never been away.

The classic VH style was there, the songs were there, Alex’s thundering double kick was there, Eddie’s shredding sonic saturation guitar wheelies were there, and David Lee Roth was there. Crazier than ever.

An estimated crowd of 9,000 certainly showed no signs they were sick of Van Halen, and yet there was laughter — and it was hard to tell whether it was with David Lee Roth or at David Lee Roth. Either way, he was the centre of attention.

For all their competency in rendering their own hits, the Van Halen boys aren’t much to look at on stage, and while over the years one sometimes got the feeling they would’ve been happy never to need a lead singer at all (LSD, Eddie called it, “Lead Singer Disease”), Diamond Dave was the most colourful frontman they could’ve ended up with. He lent a crucial clownishness to the serious excess VH was known for, and when he left, it wasn’t quite the same. Go ahead and argue.

Now, as he demonstrated in Friday’s show, Dave comes off like an uncle you don’t want to get too close to: giant giddy grin pasted on his face, flamboyant stage moves a bit toned down, while still hitting all the high notes. Almost. Eddie is as serious as ever. Dave is a clownish as ever. The chemistry is just different.

As the strains of Unchained fired up to open the show, Dave made his entrance in an ascot hat, an ascot, too, or maybe it was a scarf, parading around like some rock ’n’ roll Truman Capote. A few high kicks and minor mojo workin’ suggested the impending show might be better with one’s eyes closed (no help from the big TV screen showing slow motion instant replays).

In truth, you couldn’t take your eyes off the guy even if you wanted to, nor miss any his carnival barker spiel. Later on, after some forgettable material from their forgettable new album, Roth brought a touch of burlesque to Pretty Woman, hamming it up to the point one forgot whatever it was Roy Orbison was trying to say.

Irony isn’t really the right emotion to bring forth at a classic rock concert. Is it?

To his credit, Roth changed the intro to Hot for Teacher so he wasn’t actually pretending to be high school student, which would’ve really been creepy, and pretty much nailed the song. That goes double for Eddie, whose own distinctive guitar mojo, the sound that makes Van Halen sound like Van Halen, is intact, unchanged, perhaps even better with age.

And then came the part of the show where Roth took the stage by himself to talk about his dogs. Why they let him to this is a mystery. But then came Panama — with some inspired and unscheduled Roth patter — and for a brief moment, there was magic, perfect chemistry. Why, Eddie even jumped up and down. Don’t see that every day.

Verdict: More hits than misses at this show, and VH’s Wolfgang period will be remembered longer than some of the other chapters in their odd career — second only to the Sammy Hagar period and, of course, the original David Lee Roth years. Can’t ever beat that, even with your eyes closed.

Getting Kool and the Gang to open the concert reveals more how cool Van Halen is than Van Halen’s fans, who basically just sat there — possibly stunned into submission by the non-stop parade of breezy, melodic, old-school funk, which some people used to call “disco.”

Only at the end of the set with the inevitable Celebration did the crowd really start getting into it — because EVERYBODY knows Celebration.

Maybe Eddie the boys thought it would be kick to bring this well-preserved disco dynamo on tour with them, but there was no irony in Kool and the Gang’s flawless performance.

The nine-piece band brought it on with Vegas schtick and style, funky grooves and dance moves.

It used to be two different worlds: One occupied by Van Halen in which disco sucked, and disco. Now, anything goes, anytime, anywhere.

Mike generally writes pretty good reviews. I disagree with the forgettable album part though.

As for the asshole tweets discussed earlier. Those were by Terry Evans, morning shock on K-97 Edmonton. He didn't pay for his ticket, and his job is to create controversy. The only person you'll ever say him say anything good about are porn stars.

I wouldn't be concerned with his tweets, he's a dick.

I'm guessing the reviewer didn't listen to the album and only heard of the setlist mainstays. I do think that VH are doing themselves a disservice by playing what I feel are the three weakest songs off the album--Tattoo, STW and TTWN. I wish they'd go for it and play As Is and HBSD in place of two of those three.

And by the way it's not about Canada "deserving shows," whatever that means, it's about the band playing where they feel they can make money.

Canada's a huge country, and CVH played here a lot back in the day. Yes, we do "deserve" it.

Probably more important for the promoters: economically, we're in pretty damn good shape, especially in the West. The "prairie" provinces are booming thanks to oil. Go where you know they have money to spend...

The economy is mostly about how competent your leadership is and how productive the citizens are. Japan built itself into an economic powerhouse with very little natural resources. You have countries full of natural resources that go nowhere.

Currently in the US the state that I reside in has the highest bond rating. People say it's because we have oil and natural gas. The largest oil producing states in the US in order are: Texas, Alaska, California, and North Dakota. Nobody ever mentions California but it's the third largest oil producer in the US and has the lowest bond rating in the country.

So you can have a lot of oil and fail. Governor Brown of California is now going to up the state income taxes. Here in Wyoming we have no state income taxes. We tax our oil exports.

I have a friend who works in the motion picture industry. He says a lot of the production has left the state of California. Some of it has come up there to Canada.

So it really still boils down to good leadership and how industrious your citizens are probably more than what resources you have. I would say California right now is the poster child of failure. In the mid 80's it was the seventh largest economy in the world. Amazing how fast things can fail.

If you let corrupt politicians rule they will destroy everything you built up in surprisingly quick order. Like everything else, it's hard to build something up but it doesn't take long to destroy it.

So this is love

The thing about Canada is yes the country is huge and full of open space but the cities are big. They have nice venues and the audience is there. Many of the cities are close to the US border as well. It's not like you have to go to the top of the Yukon Territory to play a gig.

So this is love

CONCERT REVIEW: Van Halen a strange brew at Rexall
May 12, 2012 By Robin Schroffel


The jump kicks may be no more, but that doesn’t prevent David Lee Roth from executing some impressive moves for a man his age. Flamboyantly sparkly, all smiles, he shimmies and slides across the stage with the Van Halens rocking out behind him – guitarist Eddie, Alex on drums and Eddie’s son Wolfgang on bass.

Their performance Friday night at Rexall Place didn’t quite blow the roof off the house, but the band brought forth a loud, solid stream of hits from the glory years, from Dance The Night Away to Jump, songs that went over like magic.

There wasn’t a lot to Van Halen’s stage show. The reunited band opted for a minimalist approach: a gigantic stage backed by walls of signature amps, dwarfed by a huge video screen showing a mix of live and pre-recorded footage in crisp black-and-white. Instant slow-motion replays of Roth’s more intricate dance moves made certain no one missed a thing.

The band’s popular cover versions of Roy Orbison’s “(Oh) Pretty Woman” and The Kinks’ “You Really Got Me” sandwiched a drum solo, played with the aid of backing tracks. The night wouldn’t be complete without an over-the-top guitar wank. Eddie delivered, spending a good ten minutes tapping away and wailing on his whammy bar, to the cheers and delight of the audience. A thousand iPhones recorded the epic solo for posterity.

Roth enjoyed his own moment alone under the spotlight as well: filmed footage of a dog in a field played as Roth emerged with an acoustic guitar. The singer picked absently as he launched into a detailed anecdote about his beloved pet dogs and his favourite hobby, competitive sheep and cattle herding. It was a cute story, and a perfect lead-in to “Ice Cream Man,” from the band’s debut.

Despite the highlights, there were some questionable moments. Roth had an annoying habit of yammering into the mic during some of Eddie’s guitar solos. He just generally seemed a bit off: skipping lines in certain songs and at one point forgetting the words entirely. It’s bound to happen sometimes, but unfortunate considering that he’s surrounded on all sides by Van Halens who knew exactly what they were doing.

Soul and funk group Kool and the Gang was an odd choice for opener, but turned out to win over the audience with its amazing arsenal of hits. With choreographed dance routines and an insane horn section, the band managed to get everyone singing along to tunes like “Too Hot,” “Celebration” and grooving to “Jungle Boogie.” Who knew?

In the end, Van Halen unleashed a bit of a Canadian tribute: cannons stuffed with red and white confetti exploded onto the crowd, as Roth paced the stage back and forth in a fur hat waving a checkered flag and yelling “It’s cold outside!”

What a strange brew.

Corruption is alive and well in Canada too...

That's because all our central banking systems are tied into the BIS and that whole system is corrupt. You guys just don't have the big military machine the bankers have hijacked to grab oil with. Basically Europe, Canada, and the US are being screwed by the same bankers. That's why South Africa, China, Russia, India, and Brazil have started BRICS and want to use a different reserve currency than the US Dollar. The Federal Reserve Note (The US Dollar) is the world's oil reserve currency. That whole system has been horribly abused. In other worlds the more power and resources your country has the more damage it does when it get's hijacked. The Amercian people have lost control of their government and now the banks run it because they control the money supply. All they have to do is drop the interest rates, create a balloon economy make money on the up side and then let it crash and make money on downside and then buy everything pennies on the dollar.

We are fighting World War III and the weapon is debt. Debt is being used against all the western countries. The asian countries are the world's biggest creditors so they are telling the western banking oligarchs to fuck off and going out on their own. The western banks are losing their control of countries they used to control so now they are clamping down on north America and Europe more than ever. They don't want to lose their power here. The banks are the main problem.
