my wife has advertising friends in ATL... She's trying to get a minivacation together... we'll see if it happens. I know there are a few great tap houses in town... meet and greet would be fun.

It looks like the restaurant sandwiched between Phillips Arena and the Mariott is not Jock and Jill's anymore. Is it open now and what is it? That is the perfect spot for a meet up.

My son and I just got our tickets! Keep us posted on a meet!!! Who else is going?

there are two sports bars attached to the CNN Center/Philips Arena complex. One is Taco Mac and the other is called Dantana's. Taco Mac is traditional bar food (wings, burgers, etc); Dantana's is a bit more upscale. Just a couple blocks north on Marietta street is another spot called Stats, where they bring a mini-keg to your table.

I'm bringing my 11-year old kid, so I don't know if I'll be joining in the pregame festivities or not. If someone sets up a preshow hang though, we might stop by.

Got my tickets in yesterday "section 116" . Cant wait to get a good beer buzz before the show.

gbranton

Section 312, row S and I'm voting for Taco Mac if we are taking a poll.

JenniferM
02-03-2012, 09:00 PM
I know we have floor seats, but I can't remember which section. Not as close as I'd like, but close enough!! My son is so pumped! He plays guitar and Eddie is one of his heroes. I know this will be the best concert he'll ever see or hear. He wants to meet him, but I told him the odds of that are astronomical. It's okay....he'll be thrilled just to see and hear him play. (Yes, I've raised my kids right....Van Halen all the way!)
Taco Mac sounds fine to me. We just need to figure out a time. Can't wait to meet all of you!

gbranton
02-03-2012, 09:10 PM
My seats aren't all that great. I had a code for the Phillips Arena presale and I guess by that time all the good floor seats were gone, all that was left was in the back corner, so I decided against that. If I could have been in one of the front two sections or on the first level up from the stage I would have spent the extra cash. We sat in roughly the same spot a couple of years ago to see Def Leppard and it wasn't so bad.

I'll be there in Section 104, Row D with my new gf. She had the misfortune of attending the Van hagar reunion in 2004 and she thought it sucked. It's time for some Diamond-style cleansing!

I overpaid but i am on row 20 from the stage in the center floor section. I will be there and will be sporting my Eatem and Smile tour shirt to piss off any Hagaritas who may be there. If you see me give me a shout. If you guys want to meet up outside the arena somewhere let me know. I took that day and the next day off so it is showtime.

JenniferM
04-12-2012, 12:12 AM
Okay: it's getting close. Have we made up our minds on a meet? Atlanta traffic is crazy, so the closer the better. We need to get a time and place set! Looking forward to putting faces with the names (and names with the names!)

gbranton
04-15-2012, 02:02 PM
I'm staying a few blocks away, the Mariott was booked solid, I'm at that 73 story joint around the corner from the aquarium, which I plan to visit Friday. So either of those restaurants at the venue are cool with me.

JenniferM
04-15-2012, 06:34 PM
What about Taco Mac at around 3:30? We are driving a long way and I'm going to get there a little early to avoid rush hour traffic (which genuinely sucks in Atlanta). We can kill some time hanging out and discussing all things Van Halen. One round of beer on me to the Roth Army-ites who show up!! By the way, do we know if cameras or cell phones are allowed? The venue web site states that it is at the discretion of the performer.

I would like to be there by 3:30 but I think for me that will be near impossible. I'm probably more like a 5:00 guy.

As for the cameras, it has been discussed here and VH is fine with it.

JenniferM
04-15-2012, 10:37 PM
Thanks for the info about the camera. Been working a lot of hours and out of town so I haven't been able to keep up with what's going on here for a couple of months now.
If I get to meet ya', I'll buy you a beer!!!
BTW: Here's a recent photo of me (and my granddaughter) so you guys and gals will know what I look like so you can find me and my kid.

I'm on the same timeframe. Of course, we are on central time and Hotlanta is on eastern so we will have to specify which time we are referencing.

I'm thinking local time. I could be much earlier, except I will be meeting my wife in Atl. She has to get up, get ready to drive to Atl, drive, get checked in, then get ready AGAIN to go eat, drink and see the show.

And I can't check in to the hotel before 3:00, then I figure an hour for her to "get ready" and a half hour to walk to the venue at a minumum.

JenniferM
04-16-2012, 09:54 PM
:clap:Okay, so it looks like my son's friend who is coming with us has a class that morning, so we won't be arriving in Atlanta until about 4:30 Eastern time. So, is it Taco Mac then?

two nights away!! I was starting to get nostalgic, thinking this might be my last time seeing these guys, but they just went and dropped B'ham, Knoxville and Greenville for August. SWEET!

I won't be joining for the TM meet-up. We've actually got tickets in one of the suites, through a buddy of mine. Two friends and my 11-year old. Have a great time everybody!!

I am so stoked!! Hope I can sleep tonight! Worked 12 hours Monday, 14 yesterday, and 12 today just so I could get tomorrow OFF! I am READY!

Let's hope we have more than one table of people at TM.....COME ON FOLKS!!!!!!

this is for our superfan Momshell and our other vicarious army die-hards:

Assuming decent coverage, I will try to post during the show tonight for songs 4,9,13, and 18. I've done the play-by-play a couple of times before (notably opening night in Louisville), and it does distract from the show, so I'm not gonna go crazy.

Very true, along with going to a nearby pub and exchanging stories with complete strangers. Then walking into the venue and seeing merch...waiting for lights out....then Al's drums kick in and you hear Ed's guitar wailing soon after...and Dave saying "hello"....sonofabitch twice was not enough. Summertime shows....round two!

Look for HFT on the youtubes. The ending was STELLAR. Dave: "that was the best one yet".

shit, wish I had more time to write this am, but gotta get work done. Just know this y'all: they keep getting better on this tour. What a fuckin' night!!!

This is silly, but my favorite moment might have been when my 11-yr old, all on his own, raised his right hand during SGMAD and did the train whistle right on fuckin' cue! Proud moment for dad....

Also, Dave did the substitute teacher joke during HFT about Panama being down the hall and 5 songs from now...exactly 5 songs later, the kid looks over at me as Panama kicks in and holds up 5 fingers and a big grin - guess he was counting....

Best VH show I have seen since back to back nights at the old Checkerdome in the summer of 1984. The band sounds great. DLR had a good night. He ducked a few high notes and did not use his low speaking voice on the interludes from the new material (Tattoo and TTWN) but I thought he played the vocals pretty straight all night. He did "forget the words" on Outta Love and invited the crowd onto the chorus like he was a tour director (he said he was allowed to do so since he wrote the damn lyrics). At his request, all air conditioners at the arena were turned off so it got a bit "sweaty" on the floor. But well worth it as DLR was not distracted by any technical issues (except a quick order for the crew to turn off a broken monitor on stage right). Very impressed by Wolfgang. Pulled off the unison runs with EVH on STW and CT very well. Backround vocals were clear and strong. EVH played impeccibly all night -- the only time he struggled was with a few of the higher arpeggios on Cathedral, seemed like the timing of his the delay with the volume knob swells were a little off with the left hand hammer ons -- but I did not hear an off note for the rest of the show. Al was rock solid all night -- drum solo is indeed much shorter than prior tours, with the jazz/latin samples throughout. The band seemed to be in good spirits and interacted well. DLR smiled with his Cheshire Cat grin whenever he was not hamming it up and doing little dance steps. There really is no let up in the set -- no messing around between songs, very little time to catch your breathe and no encore per se. Just classic VH, delivered steaming hot with no BS.

I traveled from South Mississippi to Greensboro on the last tour. Was a trip to remember. The city was great. The show was amazing....but the road trip there was the worst I'd ever encountered. (Tire blowout, Atlanta traffic, mutliple car accidents tying up the roads for an hour at a time). There was a split second where I almost said, "Fuck it" and turned around...and then I remembered it'd been 23 years that I'd waited to see Dave and Ed on stage together again and then it became a mission.

At the show I was wearing a shirt that said, "It Ain't Van Halen Without David Lee Roth." I still can't remember where I ordered that from....possibly DDLR site. Some dude came up to me and said, "You're one of the crew!" I forgot I was wearing the shirt and didn't know what the fuck he was talking about...and he pointed at my shirt. :)

I uploaded my video for "Runnin' With The Devil" that night when I got back to my hotel and Blabbermouth picked it up and the hits were ridiculous...then I uploaded my other vids and they took off too. VH was back and all was right in the world.

This posting is probably best suited for the Greensboro thread...

I think the quote was something like, "that's OK, I was here when we built this song." Dave's banter was on all night, but atlkat is right, very rapid-fire, not much wasted time at all.

Yeah, I think it's been just about every night. It sounded really good. Sorry I'm gonna miss you guys tomorrow. It was a real blast last time, but too many commitments with the family this weekend. It's all worth it, though. Last night with the kid was pretty sweet; he really enjoyed himself and not like last tour when he was only 7 and it was just cool to be out at a show.

I had to share this. The wife is not a Van Halen fan on the same level that we are, probably a much more of a typical fan. We were reviewing and sharing thoughts about the show and she said one of the things she was most impressed with were the vocal harmonies. She and her coworkers had discussed the show beforehand and the consensus was that they wouldn't sound all that great live, now she says "Michael WHO???" It was her first VH concert. She also thought Dave, Eddie and Al were all fantastic and was very impressed by the show. She said nobody is a better guitarist than EVH and nobody is a better front man than DLR.

I had to share this. The wife is not a Van Halen fan on the same level that we are, probably a much more of a typical fan.

Your wife's epiphany is exactly the reason we need a federal law requiring every man, woman, and child to attend a Roth VH show ---- it would finally crush the Lil Wayne/Lady Gaga-ization of music and bring back the good times just like the Mighty Halen did in the late 70's.

It's really funny how fast your ear becomes accustomed to hearing the CVH songs without Mikey screaming like he jerked up his zipper while his nutsack was still hangin' out. I'll be the first to admit it - for years I couldn't imagine Van Halen without Mikey. But when you listen back to the old live boots...it's kinda jarring to hear him screaming over Dave's vocals. I'm not knocking Mikey or his contribution to the band, but damn, it just sounds better now to my ear. Yes, I said it. :gulp:

That makes me think of the 2 kids beside me in 07/08. One was telling the other that he saw VH in 04. I butted in and said, that wasn't VH, it was Van Hagar. The kid looked at me strange, and said "your one of those". I said one of what? He said "one of those fans that have nothing to do with Sam". I said that's right, Dave or the Grave.

His friend goes "I don't get it...isn't it all about Eddie?". I said "no, it's about Dave AND Eddie...you'll understand soon".

The end of the show they were both fucking VIBRATING. One said "NOW I get it", the other said "you're right, that wasn't Van Halen I saw before" and then yelled "Dave or the Grave, woohoo".

That was one of the highlights of the night for me...

Listen to this...take a pull from your favorite bottle or a hit from your favorite smoke...and tell me how it's all about Eddie...Is it? Is it really??? Don't you feel it? Isn't it all about Dave, Ed and Al cranking this shit up to 11??? Ah yeah...that's what I'm talkin' about...

I agree! It's definitely more noticeable in the old live stuff or even some of the demos. Listening to the new live stuff....the harmonies sound perfect to me. Was initially sad about MA, especially on the last tour, but now, he's not even a thought in my mind.

I LOVE that Largo show - have that on DVD. Used to watch it with my kids, especially Little Guitars. That was my kids' fave song for a while cause of that video. They used to imitate the part at the end with Eddie and Dave running back and forth - my middle one even had Eddie's slide down! For me it's always been about Dave and Eddie, in that order. When I saw Dave solo I have to say I missed Eddie less than I missed Dave when seeing VanHagar. Dave solo was a fun show regardless. Van Hagar was really intollerable to me. Not trying to take away from Eddie's brilliance - just saying for me, it is and has always been about Dave. Guess that's why I'm here :)

The quote of the night for me was during Panama. Dave grabbed himself and said "little Elvis is feeling strong tonight."

Wow. Van Halen was on fire and Dave was on top of his game. His voice sounded spectacular. Overrall performance of the band beat the last tour hands down.

I want to give some props to Kool and the Gang also. Those guys kicked ass. Some of those old dudes were throwing down. They were professional to the tee and they had their shit down solid. The guy that sings for their former lead singer who everyone identifies as their voice sounded great. He was pretty close to sounding just like the guy. I hate that Kool won't be playing with them in Birmingham. Having seen Marley with VH on the last tour, i would say that Kool brings you more for your money and gets the crowd pretty partied up prior to the boys coming on.
