    OK, I am a liar. I'm not really going. Damn, why can't I be there. I am in goddam England ...

    But, leading up to the show ... I've been on my virtual armchair travels. Looking at the google maps interior of the club at VHND, I am insanely jealous of anyone getting to see the band there. Talk about close-up and personal ... and a look at the historical photo section on the Cafe Wha? website threw up this photo below, which suggests that Uncle Manny also owned the Cock 'n ' Bull, a bar / club next door to the Wha?



    It's only Roth'n 'Roll ... but I love it.

    Closing until the show actually happens. You can't really review something that hasn't occurred, ya know?

    Must have been surreal - is this the same "She's the Woman" that was on the 1977 demos, or is this totally different?

    Thanks for keeping us updated, and looking forward to the video!

    It seems to be the same. I'll have to fire up iTunes (while I write my articles) and listen, but I think it is.
    I am in the process of sending a video of almost the entire song to Va, but it's taking forever to upload it into the email (I'm also sending a bunch of pics, which are also taking a long time to upload). In the meantime, I made a *private* link on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4pJ8ZVxZus Please don't post this elsewhere or pass it around too much. Thanks!

    Also, a bit of trivia: In the promo video for the tour (the one which shows the band in a new video, but plays clips of "1984" hits), the woman with the camera is Dana, their official photographer. I stood right next to her (directly in front of the stage) the entire time. Incredibly sweet, fun, great sense of humor. I met someone else who works for/with them, and I have to say that they surround themselves with awesome people.

    First media review is up...

    http://ultimateclassicrock.com/van-h...oncert-review/

    VAN HALEN DEBUTS NEW SONG ‘SHE’S THE WOMAN’ AT INTIMATE NEW YORK CITY CONCERT
    by: Matthew Wilkening 11 minutes ago

    Ultimate Classic Rock

    Van Halen re-emerged from a long hiatus with a short, sweaty and generally fantastic concert at a small club in New York City tonight (Jan. 5). They also premiered a brand-new and extremely catchy song, ‘She’s the Woman,’ halfway through their set.

    Frontman David Lee Roth was charmingly nervous and excited throughout the show at the tiny Cafe Wha?, which used to be owned by his now 92-year-old Uncle Manny. After blistering set-opening performances of ‘You Really Got Me’ and ‘Runnin’ with the Devil,’ he launched into a winding, directionless story about being a paramedic in New York and sharing half a cupcake with some family on New Year’s Eve. This eventually prompted both Wolfgang and Eddie Van Halen to musically nudge him into the next song, ‘Somebody Get Me a Doctor.’ Which smoked.

    After a typically but never boringly dynamic ‘Everybody Wants Some’ came the real moment of truth for the evening – Van Halen debuted a previously unreleased song. It was called ‘She’s the Woman,’ it apparently dates back to the band’s ’70s demos, and.. it was really good at the very least. We’ll reserve judgement because the proximity to our childhood heroes and the open bar and the excitement of the moment probably left us biased. But there’s no way on earth it sucked and while it was playing we could not possibly have been happier.

    After that, things got even more up close and personal, with Roth mashing up classic rock heroes by performing a bit of ‘Stairway to Heaven’ as he imagined Jim Morrison would sing it during ‘Dance the Night Away,’ recounting his own personal history with the venue during the opening of ‘Ice Cream Man,’ and urging the crowd to pretend the band left and returned from the confined, tiny stage before the inevitable set closer ‘Jump.’

    If you’re looking for someone to say this was anything less than the best place on the entire planet Earth to be this evening, you might wanna fish in some other pond.

    USA Today review...

    http://www.usatoday.com/life/music/n...ork/52400774/1

    Reunited Van Halen really gets the crowd going
    By Elysa Gardner, USA TODAY Updated 9m ago

    NEW YORK – An arena it wasn't. On Thursday night, music industry insiders and press crowded into the tiny, storied Greenwich Village club Cafe Wha? to watch a reunited Van Halen rock the joint. Frontman David Lee Roth explained that the venue had sentimental value, as his Uncle Manny had owned it.

    "This is a temple," Roth said of the club where his uncle had once played host to a young singer/songwriter "named Bobby Zimmerman" (later known as Bob Dylan). "I'm more nervous about this gig than I would ever be at (Madison Square Garden)."

    Roth didn't seem it, and neither did the musicians with whom he will tour this year: his former nemeses Eddie and Alex Van Halen— respectively on guitar and drums, for anyone who slept through the '80s — and Eddie's bassist son Wolfgang.

    That lineup will kick off a North American tour Feb. 18, following the release of a new album, A Different Kind of Truth, on Feb. 7. The group introduced a new song from that collection, She's the Woman, a chugging, unabashedly carnal rocker with a classically wailing guitar solo.

    The focus was on old favorites, though. Starting with their cover of The Kinks' You Really Got Me, the band launched into a string of fondly remembered hits, including Running With the Devil, Everybody Wants Some, Somebody Get Me a Doctor, Panama and Hot for Teacher.

    "Welcome to Occupy Van Halen, ladies and gentlemen," bellowed Roth, who looked fit and boyish in a jaunty cap and slightly baggy overalls. Diamond Dave was as energetic, cheeky and verbose a showman as ever, at one point launching into a lengthy monologue about his work as an emergency medical technician in recent years. "Hold on one more second there, kiddo," Roth quipped when Wolfgang let loose a bass riff toward the end.

    The youngest Van Halen proved a deft, muscular player, helping his Uncle Alex sustain a robust foundation for dad Eddie's fluid, frantic virtuosity. Despite the close, rather hot quarters, the audience remained rapt till the final number, Jump!, which Roth jokingly called their "fake encore." (The musicians had entered through the crowd, and there wasn't enough space for them to exit and re-emerge.)
    Manny Roth, now 92, was in the house (which he sold in 1988), as his nephew proudly acknowledged. So were tennis champ and sometime musician John McEnroe and his rock-singer wife, Patty Smyth. Chatting before the show, McEnroe described himself as "a longtime fan and friend" of the group. "They're one of my favorite bands of all time, and you can quote me on that," he said.
    "Ditto," said Smyth.

    Great job !!

    Wow, that video is killer. That song cooks, and based on that clip, Wolfie is really playing some serious bass.
    Awesome.

    I can't take the smile off my face! Thank you so freaking much for the vid! Amazing! Only some of the ending licks have changed on that tune. Man that is bad ass! Loud as hell! Wolfgang plays great! Definitely knows where the 1 and the kick land. Ed sounds great. Dave was buried a bit but sounded solid. Al is almost always 100%. AWESOME! Thank you!

    Wolfie's really thumping that bass with authority! Great improvement because I don't think he played a note on the last tour.

    THAT WAS AWESOME! Thanks for sharing such amazing footage - looks like you were literally 1 foot away from Dave. Unbelievable.
    It's the same song from the '77 demos - but it has been reworked a bit.

    The thing that really stood out for me was Wolf's bass playing - he's clearly driving that song and sounds light years ahead of where he was as a bassist in 2007.

    This kid has been on the receiving end of a lot of harsh criticism since '07, and it looks like he's going to shut some mouths during this upcoming tour.
    When was the last time bass was featured prominently on a VH song?

    Thanks again, GreenEyedMurder - much appreciated!

    VERY COOL video. Thanks GreenEyedMurder! I gotta say Wolfie's bass playing is pretty strong on this.

    I have the largest Dave Grin I've ever had right now.So happy this song will be on the album, thank you GEM, glad you had a great night!

    That clip alone has my approval of Wolfie, and I'm a Mike fan.

    You can actually hear him!! AND IT'S GOOD!!!! These 4 years have been a blessing in disguise.

    We now know there will be at least one great song on the album

    *of course there will be more to follow I'm sure*

    I don't think I can sleep tonight.....

    Well, now there's proof that Wolfie is a damn fine bass player. If anyone remembers all the comments flying around during the last tour........ you get what I'm saying. Great vid. I hope there's more.
