The Zanzibar on Yonge Street is about a 20 minute walk. I haven't been there in ages so I can't comment on quality.

The Brass rail is further up Yonge and is about a 45 minute walk. Again, it's been a while. Quality used to be superior to the Zanzibar.

There's a third one on King St West called For Your Eyes Only. Never been there, probably a 30 minute walk.

Much like my Buffalo purchase, selection wasn't great.

Opted for cheaper seats that were only about 15 rows back from the $$$$ ones that I was offered.

Hoping that we get a big crew to the pre-show festivities!

I'll hunt for better tickets for the second show when it's announced on Saturday. :)

Ha Ha, but you got a point Twona, I guess I have never got into anything other then classic rock, and blues, and country when I was 9, but must come from the fact that if I ever said I was into Kool and the Gang in high school my ass would have been kicked, and to this day I do not get the like of that stuff.....

i was fortunate (or maybe i wasn't lol) to grow up right on the edge of two neighborhoods (or maybe we'll call it one big diverse neighborhood) and go to racially diverse schools. all that music and culture was making an impression far before MTV came to town. then i'd go stay at my uncle's on the weekend and spin all his Doors and Stones albums, and steal his porn mags lol. between the two, it explains a lot, i guess.

I think most of us assumed another show on the 18th was a gimmie.

However, the first show wasn't an instant sellout like it was on the last tour so I dunno.

It did appear at time like the 17th show had sold out on the first day, in fact the first hour,

but that appears to be a Ticketbastard issue happening everywhere. I still found seats the day after

the sales went public.

Yeah I wasn't serious with that at all. I saw AC/DC at the Rogers Centre and it was terrible. Apparently the opening Act were "lost on the road" so they came on around 7:20 and the show ended around 9:30. The acoustics were terrible, it was barely audible, and you couldn't see shit!

Only 5 days away...time for a bump (and maybe a sticky)!

Twonabomber will be rolling in on Friday in order that we can practice our drinking for Saturday.

Saturday will see us hit downtown around noon for a short pub crawl. The pub crawl will culminate with our arrival at C'Est What at 67 Front St. It's a downstairs pub on the south side of Front, just east of Church. I expect that we will be there no later than 4:00. Feel free to join us as the "Roth Army 2012 Tour" invades Toronto. We should be easy to spot. You can check the Buffalo thread for our mug shots.

It's about an 11 minute walk to the ACC.

Only 5 days away...time for a bump (and maybe a sticky)!

Twonabomber will be rolling in on Friday in order that we can practice our drinking for Saturday.

Saturday will see us hit downtown around noon for a short pub crawl. The pub crawl will culminate with our arrival at C'Est What at 67 Front St. It's a downstairs pub on the south side of Front, just east of Church. I expect that we will be there no later than 4:00. Feel free to join us as the "Roth Army 2012 Tour" invades Toronto. We should be easy to spot. You can check the Buffalo thread for our mug shots.

It's about an 11 minute walk to the ACC.

Cash bar and you're on your own for food.

http://www.cestwhat.com/

The walk time is based on being Shoesless. If you have Shoes, double it. :)
I will show up about 5 pm, cant wait to hang with my fellow army bro's, should be a great night!
Its not often these days I can get excited about anything, but this night has me excited like a kid, cannot wait.....

You can eat what you want.

I'll probably go for the wings.

Von was suppost to show up at the Toronto show in 07 but he used this lame excuse that he was doing something with his son! How lame is that! :blah:

didn't you skip out of Rama, or am i thinking another show?



now i have a headache.

if i didn't have to go to work, i'd start drinking.

and if i didn't have to go pick up the rental car, i'd start drinking. maybe i will stop and see how the day shift at Girlyland is.

It's all part of Dave's act. The VH crew all seemed to like Diamond Dave in fact, a good percentage went to work for Dave when he left VH in 85.

Just returned to the Fabulous TommyV Estate after an epic evening with the world's best fucking band ever.

This was a better show that we got last week in Buffalo..tighter, more professional (if that makes sense), just a better vibe all around.

We got Full Bug (the song, not the person), Girl Gone Bad and Unchained as the opener. Romeo's Delight was dropped. Everything else was as is (not the song).

The pre-show festivities commenced at 1:00 as we hit downtown and enjoyed the company of thousands of Irish lasses. We hit C'Est What at about 3:30. Lou (Looooouuuuuuu!) was the first to join us. Guwapo joined us shortly afterwards. And that concludes our roll call. From the look of things, Moose chose to take in Kool and the Gang instead of enjoying C'Est What's famous 'Testicles on a Plate'. Makes you wonder about his....

The Rock n Roll Kid passed her driver's license test yesterday, turned 21 at midnight and saw Van Halen.

All in all, a fabulous day.

Just got back from the ACC. Was in section 104, lower bowl facing the stage at the back.
Man, tonight was great. I thought Dave was exceptionally great.
Funny thing about the spotlights. I noticed at the start of Women In Love I think it was...Ed didn't have a spotlight on him and seemed to have a hard time seeing his fretboard when nailing those harmonics. He turned around to find some more light elsewhere. Then the spotlight returns to him, then moves away again. I saw Ed in the big screen mouth a fuck you to the spotlight guy. At least two other times he didn't have a spotlight on him when he should have like in GGB, and even Dave a couple of times.

Other than that, it was killer. My only complaint is I want more! Do an evening with Van Halen ...play 2 separate 45 minute sets without an opening act...

Marcus

Van Halen rolls into the ACC
BY JANE STEVENSON ,QMI AGENCY
FIRST POSTED: SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 2012 11:56 PM EDT | UPDATED: SUNDAY, MARCH 18, 2012 12:03 AM EDT

If you were wondering who’s holding down Van Halen’s current incarnation on the road, which pulled into the Air Canada Centre on Saturday night - on St. Patrick’s Day no less - the first hint was the opening song, Unchained.

Guitarist Eddie Van Halen, his brother and drummer Alex, and Eddie’s son and bassist Wolfgang first appeared on the massive, minimalist stage - dominated by a wall of speakers and an enormous video screen - before flashy singer David Lee Roth followed.

The veteran hard rock outfit is touring with Diamond Dave in support of a new album, A Different Kind of Truth, their first studio effort in 14 years, and their first with Roth in 28 years since the album (and the year) 1984.

And even if the band kept the new songs to a minimum, playing only four - the new standouts were Tattoo and The Trouble With Never - in their loud and fast-paced hour-and-50-minute set, the Van Halen magic was clearly back after a good but not great trek with Roth in 2007 that also visited the ACC.

At that time the foursome hadn’t had the time to really gel given it was Wolfang’s first tour with his dad and uncle, Roth hadn’t been in the fold in 22 years and Eddie wasn’t looking so good and that tour later postponed some dates while he was rumored to be in rehab.

By comparison Van Halen now comes across like a happy, well-oiled machine, led by the plane engine-like guitar sound and virtuoso playing of a much healthier-looking Eddie.

Highlights were numerous: Runnin’ With The Devil, Everybody Wants Some - which the band stopped mid-song just to lap up the sound of 14,500 people roaring - Dance The Night Away, I’ll Wait, Hot For Teacher, Beautiful Girls, Panama, Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love, Jump, and their covers of Oh, Pretty Woman and You Really Got Me.

It all became apparent just content how Eddie, now 57 years old, was and is during his astonishing guitar solo late in the show as he sat alone on the stage and smiled like a little kid while he played.

Wolfgang - who turned 21 on March 16 - is also a much more confident bass player, interacting nicely with both his dad and uncle throughout the night, while Alex (in shades the entire show) made a massive racket behind his kit and Diamond Dave was up to his usual flamboyant stage antics.

Sure, the high kicks and high vocal register aren’t what they were back in the late ‘70s and ‘80s, but Roth - decked out in a shiny silver shirt, vest, and sparkly pants and occasionally a newsboy cap - knew how to work the room, whether it was sitting on Alex’s drum kit, or dancing in a soft shoe fashion on a wooden stage that enabled him to slide around in between Eddie and Wolfgang.

“How we doing so far, Canada?” asked Diamond Dave to huge cheers.

And when he changed into a blue satin jacket with red trim during Hot For Teacher you hoped the wardrobe changes would just keep coming. They did.

We also got some amusing stage banter as Roth took the stage solo with an acoustic guitar leading up to his cover of Ice Cream Man while showing footage of his herding dogs on the large screen behind him.

“Cattle dogs are a lot more aggressive,” explained Roth. “They’re a lot like Canadian hockey fans.”

In an odd but intriguing pairing, funk pioneers Kool and The Gang opened for Van Halen.

Apparently, Roth saw their set at Glastonbury last year and thought they’d be a perfect opening act.

Tragically, the 10-member Kool and the Gang - including bassist Robert “Kool” Bell - didn’t have much of an audience intitially as they kicked off their 45-minute set with Fresh.

But the crowd grew in size and spirit as the group continued along with such funk classics as Too Hot, Jungle Boogie, Ladies Night, Get Down On It, and the mother of all wedding songs, Celebration, the latter finally inspiring the audience to sing along.
