    Wow. Dave sounds like shit. Wolfe is 300lbs +. I'm not even sure I want to see them when they come to town now.

    It didn't sound good. Not only that, there is ZERO chemistry between the members. Doesn't even look like it would be fun to see them now.

    David Lee Roth is just sad. Can't sing, acting all corny on stage, not good. Eddie can still play, but Roth just ruins it all.

    The only thing that could improve them significantly right now is bringing Michael Anthony back.

    Tell me why Howard was so upset these guys blew them off? They are horrible now. I almost long for them to bring back Sammy Hagar. He can do Roth Van Halen songs better than Roth can at this point.

    Dave is all out of breath having trouble keeping up with eddie

    This is/was a terrible idea (one last cash grab)

    Are they playing arenas and amphitheatres or small clubs and casinos?

    jEEZ, You'd think Wolfie would try to lose a few.

    Pretty sad what this mighty band turned into.

    They should have had Eddie start the show with Eruption !!!

    I'm a huge fan and will see them on tour, hope Diamond Dave doesnt do this
    I will talk all the lyrics instead of singing them....


    Did David Lee Roth finally snort his nose off ?

    Can someone tell me why the system blanks out Sammy? It's weird. You can pretty much put any swear word you want on this board, but Sammy isn't allowed?

    Looks like Eddie goes to Howard's dentist.

    I saw them three times on their last two tours (and had tickets for a fourth show that got scrapped) and had a blast each time.

    Dave can't sing, but that's not a problem. The band can still play and Eddie's guitar is at 11 so you can barely hear the vocals anyway. Dave can still work the crowd and had everyone eating out of his hand when he was talking between (and during) songs.

    I'm looking forward to seeing them again this August at an outdoor venue, should be good.

    Has anyone seen them back in the day? I'm wondering if Dave always sounded that bad or if age messed up his voice.

    I noticed a few things last night. One is that Dave is in great shape. He was still doing high leg kicks. That ink was an ill advised idea. Eddie looked pretty good. How did Dave go from cool front man to silly idiot on stage? I can see why the band can't stand him. He's goofy as hell.

    The crowd is SUPER lame, too. Instead of partying and jumping around, everyone is filming with their goddamn stupid phones. Generation of retards.
    I'm not sure about that. I love Michael Anthony, but Van Halen is one of those super high-energy bands that only work when all the energy is there. These guys are too old at this point for that. Van Halen is supposed to be a wild, crazy party.

    Wolfgang looks like a fucking hippo. What the hell is wrong with that kid.

    It's over, Johnny.

    Eddie can't like... play down a step or something? Dave can't keep up with riffs that high.

    Wolfie's backup vocals are worse.
