    Well I think its safe to say no VH.

    Guess that meeting with the Van Halens didn't go so well.

    OR....if Ed isn't well - understandable.

    If he is....god I hope this doesn't mean Van Hagar again.

    Dave has Vegas dates booked for January and March 2020.

    VH could still get something together for summer 2020.

    Or maybe VH is just done.

    I don't know.

    He's gonna make a Goddamn fool of himself. His podcast about this......the guy is fucking delusional. He still thinks he's a star. Does he not realize he cannot sing worth shit anymore? And he looks like a flaming faggot with the queer moves.

    This guy is on a different planet. He needs to just retire. He thinks he is still the man...…….

    It's fucking 8 show's
    holy crap let the guy do what he enjoys doing and at least he is trying to keep himself relevant so fucking what if he's "ecentric" or odd like Natra said at least he is doing something sheesh!
    And this little Vegas stint hardly puts a dent in his schedule or anything that he or the Van Halen's have brewing which can be a possible tour or an EEAS reunion.

    Bravo to Dave!!

    Mmm...I mean, I thought his most recent online/podcast series of interviews was...a bit eye-rolling.

    Thought that live gig he did fairly recently at that benefit show was mildly embarrassing.

    If he rehearses and does a full-on blues rock with a brass section, he should be able to turn in a series of performances that are decent. It's a series of Vegas gigs as a solo showcase, so nobody should be expecting Van Halen or EEAS-caliber level performances.

    Far as his singing goes, yeah, he's not a fraction of what he used to be, and I've made more than a few allowances for the guy live since 1999 (lowering the bar for what I deemed acceptable with each subsequent live undertaking he did post-DLR Band album release).

    But, really, at this point what the fuck else is Dave gonna do? He apparently wants to work and DO SOMETHING. What else other than what he has always done? He's probably gonna keep going until people stop paying money and coming to see him. Long as people are willing, why shouldn't he? It's not compulsory that one attends one of his gigs. It's not mandatory that one goes to see Van Halen Mach 4 if they tour again if what the band is doing isn't cutting it for you.

    I get that as a fan of him when he was in his prime, comparing that to today the impulse is to say he should retire, Approaching 50, I can tell you that I'm gonna keep doing what I'm doing for a living until I can't do it anymore. Even if I hit the lotto tomorrow, I'd want to have a reason to get up every day other than to count my money. I suspect that's where Dave's coming from...although maybe his cuckoo ISN'T in the clock and he DOES still think he's every bit as good as he was in 1984...or 1996...or 2008...

    It's those faggotty moves he makes. He looks like a fucking liberal soy boy.

    And his delusion that anyone even knows who he is. He thinks he's still a rock god. It's just embarrassing.

    I love mature Dave. I loved Diamond Dave. But Diamond Dave left the building after 1992.

    I like Dave, hence I still check this site, but can someone just stop him from yelping his way down the proverbial respect ladder on this one. I want the freaking John 5 LP. Dave seems to still be able to deliver a studio project but this rehashing of old stories and phrases while he yelps in straining octaves without at least the nostalgia of the warped brothers V on stage does not help him. I saw his podcast where he brings up Tom Jones and attempts to offer his Sir Jones vocals and it was well, show some respect by not giving respect with where your vocals are now. Dave is like some child now who is listening to his self adoring parents (the people who still think he is the shit from his podcast) and believes them when they say he sounds great going into cringe worthy octaves which he never would have consider doing when he was in his prime. I guess Dave really does not have any real friends because he actually just might be all about himself, because real friends are people you respect and believe if they would say, "dude, stop singing like that because it sounds crapalicious"

    PRESALE Tickets are now on sale.

    https://www.ticketmaster.com/artist/...venueId=188737

    Use the password DLRROCKSVEGAS

    Tickets start around $64. The capacity of the House of Blues is around 2500 so 8 shows = 1 arena show especially when you include people going to more than one plus casino comps and so on so I would expect this to sell out quite quickly.

    Either nobody with any influence on him has spoken frankly to him about the state of his live vocal approach, or possibly he wouldn't listen anyway, but clearly he could sound a lot better with a lot less effort and strain by merely singing.

    I'd bet the run gets extended if the initial dates sell well and the sisters decide not to do anything for another year.

    The thing people don't realize or don't want to face reality with - is that Dave got old.

    And despite being in great shape for his age (that high kick in the trailer was something else from someone in his 60s) - he can't do what he did from years past (split legged leap off the drum riser for instance).

    And another signature thing from Dave that is gone now is...….his hair.

    So with those things no more he has to reinvent himself and does so with the dance moves, etc.
    And a buzz cut hairstyle.

    Dave has never been your typical rock frontman. Never was. People should no this the minute he put out Crazy from the Heat.

    Yep, there's 'dem Funky Chicken dance moves...

    Heard that this House Of Blues Vegas residency is going to be heavy on the CVH stuff, which...well, if Dave is having trouble cutting the mustard live re: the CVH material even when playing with the Van Halens, I'm not sure performing with an Eddie clone is going to make the result any better even if said clone nails Eddie's licks down to the atom.

    The one thing for sure is that in a venue that small, along with the immediacy of seeing Roth and the band up close, every nuance is going to be right up front center stage and easy for the audience to discern, for good OR bad.

    I'm certainly not a Scottish alcoholic who can't form any opinion until he Googles it and needs to be told what to think and do.

    And when I say Scottish, I mean so-called men who wear skirts and think they're actually men. Not to mention the socks......You should hook up with Trudeau and share your collection of rainbow socks.

    That must be the liberal in you. 35 genders, with one of them being Scottish (certainly not men).

    Posting pictures of Dave's ass.....

    DJ on Sirius Ozzy's Boneyard says "people are saying Eddie might show up, or it could be the Eat Em' And Smile band backing Dave..." and I'm thinking no one that knows anything about this band thinks Ed is going to show up.

    And now the question of all questions:which of you motherfuckers will be there. We're planning a trip from Berlin/Germany to see Dave and Aerosmith on one weekend. Lets see if we can get it done

    Tickets start around $64. The capacity of the House of Blues is around 2500 so 8 shows = 1 arena show especially when you include people going to more than one plus casino comps and so on so I would expect this to sell out quite quickly.
    I wonder if Dave is going to grab a bottle of his skin care lotion and squirt it all over the front row from his crotch. I guess $64 is worth seeing old man Roth go crazy. Not much different than watching Joe Biden try and campaign.

    The answer to the question isn't much but it says a lot...

    4 years of down time wasn't doing Dave any damn good and he's running out of time. Dave's motivated and still feels capable to get out and perform. Good for him!!

    The Van Halens don't have it in em... probably time to start drafting eulogies, tribute shows and making sure their trusts and wills are in order. May they RIP...

    Always figured Dave would return to Vegas... it's one of the few places on the planet where his shit is a guaranteed sell. They'll fill the seats every night for this run as there's plenty of fans willing to drop less than $100 to see the Toastmaster General.

    The performances will most likely fall somewhere near but not quite as good as the pre-reunion DLR Band gigs from a musical perspective. The cheesy showmanship will be there along with some well paid, scantily dressed eye-candy props. And...

    Dave will Yelp the Night Away™...

    Live music economics continue to puzzle me. Why is it half the price to seem him much closer up than at an arena. Ok the VIP tickets aren't that cheap but at least you are sitting at a table at the front with a bottle of anything. How much cooler is that than any seat in an arena?

    $63 for a show in Vegas is not expensive - a magic show costs more.

    As far as the show goes I think you will be right. It's going to be less of a band than the DLR Band and it will almost certainly suffer from no Ray Luzier plus Dave is older now. I just realized the last time I saw him solo was 15 years ago which is a weird thought...

    Supply and demand. For fans of DLR, it is cheap but for everyone else it is not worth it. If Eddie was there than the venue would be different no doubt the T-mobile or MGM arena.

    I saw Def Leppard at their residency at the Hard Rock Casino a few years ago... had the mid-priced seats in the balcony and it was great viewing and sound.

    The venue more than makes their money and way above the ticket price. Once you get drinks and if you spend any time gambling or partying before the show you'll drop a couple hundred easy.

    I think, like ZahZoo says, it'll be a good venue to see him in. No bad seats per se, and the sound quality will be much better than any you could find at a large basketball/hockey arena.

    It also shouldn't be hard to find a guitarist who can replicate Eddie's licks, and a rhythm section who can replicate the 20-odd CVH tunes Roth will probably play.

    In the end, it'll be what Roth does - or is no longer able to do - that'll make the difference at these shows in terms of it being any good or not.

    As Sesh says, a $100 these days isn't unreasonable for a ticket price. For ANY band. It's just the going rate for seeing performers these days. Baseline price might be $45, but after you throw in the "ticket handling fee" or "purchasing fee" or "venue surcharge" or whatever miscellaneous extra is thrown on, it ends up being nearly $100 anyway. Even to see a band like Foreigner, even on a night Mick Jones doesn't play with them, or a Steve Perryless Journey.

    For me, seeing an act in an arena vs. a smaller venue comes down to the live sound.

    Honestly, the only 2 acts I've seen in the last decade at our local 20,000 seat basketball/hockey arena that really sounded any good - and this includes seeing Van Halen there twice in that time frame - were Neil Diamond and Billy Joel. Wasn't a surprise to find out later that both of those guys have had their own live sound engineers and own equipment that they have been using for twenty years.

    I tend to doubt Van Halen circa 1999 onward have employed their own live sound engineers in terms of using the same one for every tour, or have their own top-to-bottom live sound system and aren't using the house P.A. to provide the majority of the live sound. If they have been, they should reconsider, because neither of the Tampa gigs in 2008 and 2012 sounded particularly good. Not the worst I've ever heard, but not really great, either.

    I'm surprised at the lack of comments about Dave's comments on the lack of Van Halen future and Eddie's health.

    Dave's statements are obvious with respect to the future of VH, but not the reason.

    They are retired, and done. Face it.

    I hate FB, but I did see a post an hour ago about Kody Van Halen's FB page. Normally I wouldn't even look. But there is clearly medical equipment (possibly an IV) in the background, and it is EVH playing with the dog according to the post.
