Let's hope this is the break Dave needs to get his voice back in order. I'm thinking he'll get back sounding better on this tour come April 10th, rested, refreshed, and ready to kick ass!

Maybe someone could go ahead and sabotage any air blowers so the audience doesn't have to hear that excuse.
That and/or Dave could save his voice by quitting to try to hit that high register which sounds like shit anyway.

Great show!! Terrible cell phone reception though.. No MWM, not sure what that was about. We got HAIT and Outta Love.. Dave sounded so good! None of the rasp that's been hounding him lately. Very clean. This was very much a no bullshit show.. They rolled through the set. Dave skipped the dog intro to ICM.. He just wanted to rock.
A funny moment was during Women in Love, the band forgot to play the solo! Dave realized it, told Eddie to play the solo then told us 'I forget the words sometimes.. I've been drinking!'
So much fun!

Some quick highlights.
Band sounded great! The mix was pretty damn good and it usually sucks in that arena

DLR stopped the show during the drum intro for hot for teacher to complain about the blowers and how it's fucking up everyone's voices so he got the crowd to yell at them to stop the blowers

Took a while to get dlr on stage for ice cream man. Was fussing around with his guitar cable. Dog video started and he said "I don't want to do this shit I just want to play ice cream man! Cut the dog video and put me on screen!" he also didn't draw out the "guaranteed...... To satisfy" outro

During panama at the break after the solo dlr walked off stage and didn't do the the whole "I can barely see the road..." spiel. Just came back and went into the buildup for th chorus.

After ain't talkin bout love dlr said "I dont want to get off stage, you guys want th encore now?" and went straight into jump.

Overall I think the show was great but Dave looked kinda upset after the blower incident. Looked more like he was upset at some technical fuckups backstage.

So this is love

Vain....glad to hear i wasn't the only one with crappy cell coverage!

The band was awesome!! Dave was going off big time about the "blowers"....starting to wonder if this is real. He actually left the stage to keep yelling after he asked once. The place was on it's feet the entire show. I was wondering if that would happen after hearing other reports. The crowd was in to it and the band was also!

I got to see HAIL for the first time ever in person! I loved it!!

Dog video started and he said "I don't want to do this shit I just want to play ice cream man! Cut the dog video and put me on screen!" he also didn't draw out the "guaranteed...... To satisfy" outro

During panama at the break after the solo dlr walked off stage and didn't do the the whole "I can barely see the road..." spiel. Just came back and went into the buildup for th chorus.


Oh oh ---- back from a week off and Dave is already in "let's blow through the set so we can go home" kinda mode.

Doesn't bode well considering they got a busy 2 month schedule ahead of them ;-(

Hey all... ok... from what I have read so far in the quick reviews ... seems all is correct... NO Me Wise Magic or any real surprises... Hear About It Later was back (my favorite song, so that rocked!!!)

The band hit the stage and the (mostly) sold out crowd was into it... and Unchained set the tone (perfect opener)...

Very energized and just a great band!!!

Dave sounded VERY strong... he still butchered (in my opinion) Dance The Night Away, Beautiful Girls (some ridiculous nasally voice, like the Downtown Sessions) and the choruses of Chinatown (although he toyed with a lower register in verse/bridge parts and it sounded good) ... I also don't like the way he goes high in the chorus of Hear About It Later as opposed to doing the root note... but I know I'm being picky since I sing...

That being said (and I've mentioned this before) there is really NO reason for Dave to be hacking these songs, as he is singing them way higher than they were originally intended and if he just stayed in his natural tone and melody they would ABSOLUTELY KILL...

I say that because he SANG THE FUCK out of I'll Wait and Women In Love and his voice sounded absolutely killer... I'm sure once the YouTube vids come up there will be more critical analysis... but I thought overall Dave really benefitted from the break... he was strong and held a few long powerful notes... even some of his yelps were quite strong and I even heard a 'classic' Dave (short) scream in Ain't Talkin' Bout Love ... he was very animated (in the first half pre-blower incident) and slipped on the dance floor a few times and dropped his mic stand also... but he just kept on motoring and being the legendary frontman that he is!!!

The part about Dave saying he forgets the words in Women In Love was actually because Eddie fucked up the song!!! It was quite funny as he was supposed to go into the solo and he kept singing the chorus!!! The camera was on him and on the big video screen you could see him look over to Dave and Wolf and clearly mouth "I fucked up" and then just started laughing... that is when Dave said the "go to the solo... No big deal, I forget the words all the time" ... had EVH's back!!! Very loose and cool and quite funny... actually, the band seemed like they forgot a few things during the break, but it really made the show a bit more natural and not "robotic" ...

The backing vocals were strong, Wolfgang Van Halen is a fucking killer player (can we PLEASE END the Michael Anthony whining already) and Alex Van Halen is just a monster...

I don't even know what to say about Edward Van Halen except this - Edward Van Halen ... really that is all one has to say... completely mind blown as to the EVH we are getting to see today... shredded shredded shredded...

The blower incident really set Dave off!!! He did stop Alex in the middle of the intro to Hot For Teacher and really went on a rant... and I have to admit, as much as I thought it was part of the "schtick" like "I forgot the fucking words" (which Dave did NOT do tonight) the blowers were REALLY blowing... we had club seats and were freezing ... I know how much that can fuck with your voice while trying to sing and DLR totally lost it... which set a much quicker pace from that point on... he definitely was set off and left the stage about 3 or 4 times to really let somebody have it... they eventually DID stop blowing...

He did compose himself to announce after EVH's great solo "The winner and still champion - Edward Van Halen!!!"

Was funny watching EVH do the wierd foot sliding thing DLR does on the dance floor a few times... although I didn't see a 'Flying Eddie' tonight (unless I missed it)...

They extended the Dance The Night Away breakdown part so Dave could talk about the Latin influence on the song (since he was in South Florida) and told quite a hysterical story about the Latin community in California when they first wrote the song and they played it every night and the dances the different types of Latins would do during the song... I'm sure there will be video... was definitely a comedic moment and the band was riding it!!!

I was with 3 other people (all VH fans) and we all had a great time... as I feel did the entire venue!!! Really good reaction!!!

Ok... that is it off the top of my head...

For all the South Florida VH fans, my cover band 'The Smokin' Aces' (www.Facebook.com/TheSmokinAces) will be at Murphy's Law @ Hollywood Hard Rock This Friday and next Friday (11pm) and downtown Ft. Lauderdale @ Dicey Riley's this Saturday (11:30pm) ... we do a few classic VH tunes as well as 60's - today!!! Check out the Facebook page for all our Photo Albums from each gig... it is quite the MADNESS when we play!!!

Concert review: Van Halen at the BankAtlantic Center, April 10, 2012

The storied rock band revisited its past, while closing the book on a less-than-great portion of it.
2:14 a.m. EDT, April 11, 2012

A Van Halen fan doesn’t need a reason to forget the name Sammy Hagar, but the reconstituted version of the band that played last night at Sunrise’s BankAtlantic Center offered plenty of them, anyway, and certainly no less than 22, the combined number of old and new songs the group performed in a bracingly loud, fleetingly nostalgic set that topped two hours. With original frontman David Lee Roth back at the microphone, Van Halen did its best to close the 28-year gap between “1984,” the last album the band cut with Roth before replacing him with the aforementioned Hagar, and “A Different Kind of Truth,” the surprisingly solid reunion album it released earlier this year. It didn’t play a single song from its post-Roth era.

Gone were any visible traces of the divisions that drove Roth away from and out of the band all those years ago, and if the singer’s nonstop smiling and wild-eyed mugging often appeared more mannered than genuine, his interplay with guitarist Eddie Van Halen, who seemed to be enjoying himself as much as any member of the audience, came off as warm and jovial, even brotherly. Only the absence of founding bassist Michael Anthony, who departed in the mid-2000s and who has been replaced in musicality if not in spirit by Eddie’s son Wolfgang, suggested any evidence of previous disharmony. But it was faint. And save the deep, riverlike lines made visible in the face of Alex Van Halen whenever he appeared on the large video screen behind the band, the preternaturally stoic drummer looked the same as ever.

Opening with “Unchained,” from the band’s 1981 album “Fair Warning,” the group quickly dispensed with the idea that the audience was in store for a typical reunion show, with all its attendant celebrations of past glories and starkly present reminders of fading abilities and eroding relevance. Sure, Roth’s roundhouse kicks don’t reach as high as they once did, and his flowing mane of blond hair has long since been replaced by a short, preppy ’do. And yes, he can no longer drop into a split without calling attention to the fact that he’s not too old to drop into a split, but last night, Roth lived up to his Diamond Dave moniker, glittering in matching black leather pants, vest and jacket, worn over a sparkling blue shirt that would make half the performers in Las Vegas blush. Although his style and demeanor have been widely imitated, Roth has always followed his own blueprint, a hard-rock frontman whose belt is crafted with as much Borsht as vinyl, and a sex god who isn’t afraid to appear mortal. He remains the genre’s preeminent ham, and only late in the show, when he interrupted Alex Van Halen’s drum intro to “Hot for the Teacher” to deliver an expletive-laden tirade against the stage crew for failing to properly control the temperature of the overhead “blowers,” did he allow any cracks to appear in his facade. It was an awkward, uncomfortable moment, the low point of the show, and it took the band two songs -- the deep cuts “Outta Love Again” and “Women in Love” -- before Roth was able to regain his composure and lead the Van Halens through a rollicking version of the classic sing-along “Beautiful Girls.”

Of course, Roth’s star is inextricably linked to that of Eddie Van Halen, the inventive, phenomenally gifted guitarist who has his own legions of acolytes and imitators. But even during songs as familiar as “Runnin’ With the Devil,” “Panama,” “Hot for Teacher” and the group’s cover of Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman,” Van Halen looked and sounded as if he’d only recently discovered his remarkable talent, that goofy, can-you-believe-I-can-do-this grin plastered to his weathered but still boyish face. Twice during his requisite, yet astonishing, late-set guitar solo, he gave the audience -- and himself -- a reflexive thumbs-up. Likewise, his fist-pumping enthusiasm during the night’s penultimate song, “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love,” was redolent with charm. The effect for the audience was akin to rooting for an underdog who long ago became the leader of the pack.

The show ended, to no one’s surprise, with “Jump,” a trifle of a song from “1984” that also may have been the original lineup’s biggest hit. The song’s trademark keyboard riff was piped in from somewhere off-stage, but that didn’t seem to matter much. As the band struck its final note, and as Roth sang his last lyric of the night, the front half of the arena was blanketed with a hail of red and white confetti, shot forth from two large cannons near the front of the stage. It rained down in thick clumps, with Roth standing on the edge of the stage and manically waving a red-and-white checkered flag. The show was over. The race with the past had been won.

Start using your brain, dumbo ---- watch any of the old videos and Dave never halted a song halfway through to say "Stop squirtin' water at me or I'll fuck your girlfriend". He only did it between songs. Rest of the band would've got pissed if he consistently stopped songs to brag about fuckin' a dude's chick.

On certain songs on the tour Dave has struggled with some of the vocals ... Some of it due to singing in a higher register and some of it sounds like he could have been a bit horse/have a sore throat. Am guessing the same as everyone else here but maybe Dave is conscious of this and is pissed at the air con in venues .... It could be a davism only time will tell.

A lot of singers don't like AC blowing on them while they're working, I totally get that. Hell, I worked for a singer that specified in the contract rider that his onstage water bottles had to be kept at room temperature, because drinking anything ice cold while singing was difficult for him. I don't think it's schtick on Dave's part.

Actually dude....when I buy bottled water at a 7-11 or something, I look for it room temp or ask for it from the back. When I'm really thirsty I want to chug it. Can't do that when it is chilled. Room temp quenches better & you can drink it faster.

To those who criticise the looks of Sarah Jessica Parker I say 'neigh' - if it would behoove you to have some common courtesy you should stop making such unbridled remarks. It's unfair to saddle her with this level of ugliness.

Someone needs to take the reigns and say "wooooah" this is going too far. Why do we need to trot out these same cracks every time her name comes up?

If she was coming to my town, I'd definitely pony up the cash to see her.

And remember guys, those blowers aren't blowing fresh air onto Dave & the guys. It's recycled air from the 12,000 coughing, sneezing, sniffling fans. I swear, if I spend much time at a casino I catch a cold after due to everyones germs floating around. That's why you always see people wearing the blue surgical masks. Having it concentrated & blown right in your face for 2 hours is bound to make you sick.

I dunno, I get the impression that you are beating a dead horse here, and pretty much closing the barn door after the horses have fled. It's wrong to look a gift horse in the mouth, and I don't see the need to get on a high horse about the subject. Remember, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make her drink. Of course, that's a horse of a different color.

Damn, lunchtime all ready. I'm so starved, I could eat a horse.

That's why I never hang out in casinos in PA --- too much "old people smell" wafting through the air

Even worse, it's dumb old people trying to beat odds against them when they are on a fixed income usually. The only thing worse than a young dumbfuck is an old dumbfuck who should know better.

Want to go on record and say no blower rant in Montreal. I think the rants are legit. I've played in a place where the AC is on full blast and it really does dry you out.

Exactly ---- I seen too many of these old bags burn through their Social Security checks every week and then bitch about the cost of living.

America needs to abolish Medicare and Social Security and we'd solve the debt crisis in a few years.

If you spend all your savings at the casino or bingo hall ---- dont expect pity when you're starving or need to see a doctor.

Start using your brain, dumbo ---- watch any of the old videos and Dave never halted a song halfway through to say "Stop squirtin' water at me or I'll fuck your girlfriend". He only did it between songs. Rest of the band would've got pissed if he consistently stopped songs to brag about fuckin' a dude's chick.

These blower rants are the REAL DEAL ---- why cant these venue dickholes follow simple directions?

You think stopping a song makes it any less schtick?? That's called variety...

If it's not a routine... I posted this in another review thread... modern arenas use automated climate control systems. You think all the gear, that huge fucking TV screen and the monster lighting rig don't put out some serious heat... they do. I'd imagine it's well over 140 degrees F between the lighting rig and ceiling. Odds are the building sensors are compensating for the heat bubble around the stage.

But that raises the question... can you blame the venue because VH plants a bon-fire at one end of the arena and then proceeds to set the stage on fire every nite? I think whoever designed the stage set-up needs to account for the heat issues that may be causing performance issues.

Wouldn't hurt to hose down Ed every third song too... that fucker is on fire!!

I miss the smell of cherry pipe tobacco the old timers used to smoke. We had a neighbor who had like the perfect immaculate house and lawn and he drove the coolest classic black Thunderbird convertible. It was always spotless and shined up. He always was smoking a pipe with cherry tobacco in it. It smelled so good you would just hang around to smell it.

The good old days. The mailman would give us kids candy and nobody locked their doors. It seems like a different fantasy world now.

Don't know if it's real or shtick - I personally believe it's real, but I've been known to be gullible when Dave speaks, so I acknowledge that. Either way, "disa-fuckin-pear" made me laugh out loud, literally. I've been entertained once again by the Toastmaster, so I'm happy! :)

That's not real...

Nobody finds it the least bit odd that it has happened on nearly every show just like the squirting water bullshit ??

Real or not, I'm wondering when it's going to start affecting the entire band and possibly causing dissension in the ranks. I'm sure that the other three may be getting tired of being interrupted in the middle of their groove.

Stopping Alex during the intro to HFT is like stopping a fucking freight train going at full speed.

Plus, every time there's a "rant", he brings up the cost of the tickets.

Perhaps Dave is aware of the exorbitant ticket prices and is trying to acknowledge/justify it...using blowers and spotlights as the platform?
