    I think Dave will continue to be active - more a semi retirement.

    Based on Dave's references to Alex... I got the distinct impression that without Edward... the Van Halen chapter is being closed. For whatever motivation that led to Dave choosing to do those few last shows, it's probably just to put an exclamation point on that phase of his life/career, possibly a celebration of his Van Halen legacy and doing it on his own terms.

    From there... more frog doodling, cartoons and hopefully something musical...

    Common Questions About Frog Mythology
    Who is the God of frogs? The God of frogs is Heket who is represented in Egyptian mythology as a goddess with a frog head and human body. Heket was said to protect women during childbirth and it was believed she brought balance, fertility, and order to the world.

    What does seeing a frog mean spiritually? Spiritually, frogs typically symbolize prosperity, good luck, purity, fertility, transformation, potential, renewal, growth, rain, natural cycles, and healing depending on culture and context.

    Are frogs a good omen? Frogs are considered good omen in many cultures including Egyptian, Greek, Irish, Chinese, and Japanese cultures. Many cultures believe frogs are a symbol of fertility, prosperity, and transformation.

    What do frogs mean biblically? Frogs symbolized fertility for the ancient Egyptians, yet the Frogs Plague is said to have occurred in Ancient Egypt around and is documented in the Bible in Exodus 8:1-4 as the 2nd of 10 plagues.

    I mean, I can't imagine Dave, Alex or Wolfie going forward would be performing under the moniker 'Van Halen'...sadly but certainly for me, that band died with Eddie...and I can't see Dave, Alex or Wolfie having the heart to try and continue under the Van Halen band name without Eddie, irrespective of if they could do so and have a degree of success with it. I'd certainly agree that Dave was THE voice of Van Halen - the only voice of the band that mattered to me - and I'd like to think as you surmise that those last few shows are just Dave's way of putting that voice and those songs to rest far as a live setting goes.

    Beyond the Vegas gigs, my ears would certainly welcome hearing what Dave has and would come up with far as studio stuff. At this stage of the game, I personally wouldn't want to see Dave try and continue fronting rock combos essaying the CVH material, or try and reconvene the EEAS lineup...I just don't think Dave has much of anything left in the tank to do either of those scenarios justice, and that's strictly because Dave...he just got old, you know? It happens.

    I suppose the "Unless It Isn't" (a tagline second to Hell Freezes Over) leaves it open ended
    but unless the venue prohibits it, why not pro shoot the "last" show(s) and release 'em for
    folks who miss their "last chance" to see him live?
    I'm still a little bitter about the cancelled Darien Lake Sam & Dave show back in 2002 (found
    out about it 10 minutes from the venue - grrrr emoji) but I would probably watch a final gig
    show if it was made available.

    Y'know, just because...

    We made it to Erie before Von called and said there's no show.

    I'd say it'd be a proposition to perhaps shoot the shows and upload them to Dave's site, and then either display them for free or for a small fee...

    I mean, the reality is that at least one audience member is going to film the show(s) on their phone and upload it to youtube for free, and given the choice between viewing it on youtube for free - as shitty as the sound on smartphone audio is vs. professionally mixed - or paying money for an official release, another reality is that people are fine with viewing it on youtube.

    The days when Dave was going to proshoot a solo show and sell an amount of copies making the production of a live video worthwhile are long, long gone.
