    Who should CVH Tour with if they do get back together?

    Curious to see who you people think CVH should tour with if they get back together. Maybe Velvet Revolver, Lenny Kravitz, AC/DC, Aerosmith...Hell maybe even Weezer!?!? I think they are fans of Van Halen's older stuff.

    When Van Halen reunite, Dave will pick the opening act,

    and it will be an act we have never heard of.

    I bet they'd sign on in a split-second, Weezer as well.

    I think a cool newer act would be a nice fit...way better than turning it into a beaten-to-death revival fest.

    Hoobastank opened for Dave at Music Midtown here a few years back, and that kid just gushed about who was on next...at the end of their set he was like, "Can you believe it??!! David Lee Roth is fucking next!!!"

    He meant it.

    Maybe they can convince Autograph to get back together and open for them...

    Seriously though, I'd want 2 1/2 hours live from a reunited Van Halen. If they toured with Aerosmith, AC/DC, etc., then each band would end up playing 1 hour 45 min or something like that. It'd be too much like the Sam and Dave thing. Dual headliners would cut into CVH's set time.

    Maybe the Foo Fighters. Dave G has a healthy respect for classic bands like VH. He'd be cool enough to abbreviate his set to an hour if it'd allow CVH to play longer.

    You've beat the Hoobastank reference to fucking death.

    The LAST time I saw Dave here, Kim Wilson's harmonica-driven solo blues act opened in a torrential fucking downpour. We talked to Lomenzo and Luzier for a minute on the way to the floating concession stand before the show and they seemed really stoned. I think Wilson said something like, "Thank you Atlanta! David Lee Roth is up next....Good Luck!" after he finished his set, 'cause all that was missing was a tornado.

    Ya know, theoretically it would not matter. Van Halen could have a reunited Led Zep open for them and Van Halen would still blow them away....that is, if they were in shape, and could find their way out of a bottle....I know Dave would be up to the task at hand.

    The answer is nobody. Van Halen has a large enough catalogue of music with Dave to make it into a real event! Do something along the lines that RUSH have been doing these past few years and play for and hour and half, take a thirty minute break, come back and rock everybody's asses off for another hour and a half! Now, THAT, would be a real classic Van Halen reunion! Give everybody there money's worth and walk away happy as a clam! $0.02

    I wouldn't want to see any opener

    rush idea? no offense, but fuck that! besides joining up with festivals like the h.o.r.d.e tour early on, phish did the "rush idea" since the early 90's at least! play for an hour and fifteen, take a half hour break (they always said "we've see ya in 15 minutes"-probly as a joke) then the second set with encore would be about 80-90 minutes. not that i love phish much, but they did a lot of things right-different sets every night, the ability go take risks and follow each other when a cool improvised idea came up without worrying if they got back to the main song, and a huge grassroots following well before they got signed...and they got signed because elektra knew they already had a built in audience. word of mouth CRUSHES media hype and promotion!

    in fact, to respect the bands before them, many bands didn't use openers. a band as big as VH simply doesn't need 'em! then you can tell who's there to see you and you alone.

    CVH happens to be the best band ever, but i like a wide variety of setlists and musical surprises, and knowing that some songs can be put it or taken out at a moments notice. when you got the songs down pat you can play around with them...CVH did that, and IF they come back they fuckin better do it even more! and NO MORE INDIVIDUAL SOLOS!

    The Darkness would be fun.

    The Kings of Leon would make them work.

    The Datsuns would get more national exposure.

    The Yeah Yeah Yeah's would get boo'd off of the stage.

    Velvet Revolver...Love to see two living guitar gods at one venue shred it up, but its not going to happen.

    Jet...just not rocking enough.

    The Donnas.....Hell yeah! Even Alex could get a date!

    Totally agree that I'd love to see CVH live doing 3 hours+, but have doubts that Ed and Al could get it up long enough, not without some really long, boring bass solos from MA (as if there's any other kind) to give them a breather, or the standard drum, bass and overlong guitar concert solos...and I just don't give a shit if I ever see Anthony or AVH do a solo anyway.

    I'd rather get 2 1/2 hours straight from CVH, chock-full of tunes and NO BASS OR DRUM solos. EVH gets 5 minutes unaccompanied mid-concert. That way, if he's gonna go out there and wank, 5 minutes will be more tolerable than 15-20.

    I totally agree with ya Terry, I'd rather not EVER hear a Mikey or Alice solo again! Buckshot, I didn't mean to sound like turn their show into a long extended jam session, if that's what you thought. RUSH didn't do long solos, just kept 'em short and sweet!

    It would even be kinda cool to see them do a couple of sit down accoustic songs off of WACF, Zep style!

    If this reunion ever comes to be, don't you think the real fans that have been denied for twenty yrs. or so, give or take, deserve the full treatment and not waste time with an opener? Not at todays ticket prices! Who wants to sit thru a half assed mediocre opening act? Not this cat.

    I wish It was like Aerosmith's 1979 tour.
    Cheap Trick
    AC/DC
    Aerosmith
    Ted Nugent would make an AWESOME TOUR! I would Add Velvet Revovler and this would possibly be one of the Greatest Traveling Rock Festivals ever. Oh, and a certain Red Rocker is not invited.

    I don't know if The Nuge would tour without Sammy, they are good friends. Aerosmith still has some gas in the tank, I've seen them 5 times in concert and they are still a top band to see.
