    He says it was great and thanked me for taking him, but he just stood there stiff during the show. I nudged him and got him to pump his fist a couple of times during the Hey Hey Hey part of ATBL. So, I just have to take his word for it that he did have a good time.

    Great clips. Dave's definitely pushing harder on this tour than the last one. That works both for and against him. DTNA is still a horror show. SOMEBODY has got to tell him about settling down with that damn song. He's gonna blow a gasket.

    It is clearly a deliberate decision on his part.

    How would you say it to him? In your own words Dave, if Beethoven came back no one wants to hear DA DA DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE AAARRRRRRRRRGH OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH DA DA

    Like 'I'll Wait' the song is only in the set because it counts as a hit because the single was in the US top 20 100 years ago.

    It wouldn't have been if he had used the current melody.

    I have no idea where you're getting that idea that outdoor ampitheaters are generally smaller than indoor arenas....

    Indoor they only hold on the average 15,000 or so, because they have to cut off about 1/4 of the arena where the stage is set up....

    The vast majority of outdoor ampitheaters hold nearly 20,000, with 10,000 actual reserved seats and the other half in the lawn.....

    I was 8th row in front of Ed. It wasn't the sweet spot for the sound. The vocal did not come through especially well. Maybe that made it better.

    All I know is that in 2007 I saw VH with a Dave that sang pretty well, but hardly said a word to the audience. Not even a story before Ice Cream Man. And, Edward's playing was mediocre.

    This time I saw a worse for wear singing Dave that told a story, anecdote, or joke between and during songs. The band was tight, and everyone looked like they were glad to be there.

    I'll take the 2015 show all day long. These reviewers that want Dave to shut up and sing certainly don't go to see VH for the same reasons I do. I go for the banter. I go for the playing. I go for the parts that are unexpected. If I wanted perfect music and no banter, I have cd's for that.

    While today's Dave, and especially 2012-2013, wouldn't make a great live album. It makes for one hell of a show. I was grinning bigger than..well..David Lee Roth. I don't know how it was from the lawn. I don't know how it was from the mixing booth. But, from down front it was the show of shows. I could not be much happier. I certainly would not have enjoyed Dave standing in one place, singing the songs, and not speaking except to introduce songs and the band. That's not VH. What I saw last night. That was VH. They're back, baby, and Roth, weak voice and all, plays a very large part in making it happen.

    Has Dave had Jack Daniels on stage before? I don't recall hearing about him doing that since the reunion? He was having some drinks from the bottle during ICM intro.

    Intesting point about the lack of banter in '07/'08 vs the plenty of banter now. I too enjoy that stuff, but in its right place. Over the exit solo to DDL is not the right place, but the intro and middle of EWS is.

    That's right Pete's Brother. I'm telling Dave when he can talk!

    I'm still surprised they put out a live cd instead of a blu ray, Dave's performance is just as much visual as it is oral. I'd like to think Tokyo dome wouldn't be as bad if u could see them playing.
    Bottom line is that this tour looks awesome and I can't wait for DC show.

    Please tell me that the person who wrote that review (he's obviously Sammy Hagar himself) is making stuff up when he says people chant for Sammy. That cannot be true. Dude get a life and go watch the waboringitas if you don't prefer this current lineup. When Dave wasn't in the band I went to his solo shows it never even crossed my mind to go see a Hagar show.

    Van Halen is currently doing shows in the heartland of the fat shadow, the domain of Sammy Hagar fans where he has infested the masses with dreams and love... I would not be shocked if some local hack does not give it a horrible review in St. Louis where Hagar basically seems to have a second house on stage lol

    I've never had any problems with an objective yet negative review....

    But when you mention Hagar not once but twice, not to mention terms like "shameless ham", this dude came to the show with an agenda....

    Well I am sure he at least had a great time hanging with his dad.

    Wait. Is this true? That wasn't 1979 Dave? Apparently, some people actually knew it was not 1979. How did they find this out before the show?

    That's right Pete's Brother. I'm telling Dave when he can talk!
