    I saw the VH-tribute band Fair Warning last night. I heard about the show about 5 hours ahead of time, so needless to say my plans for the night changed!

    They were playing a club in Fridley, MN. It was an awsome show! The four of them dress the part of early-VH, and manage to pull it off.

    The show started out with a lot of material from the first 3 albums, and that's where it stayed. From the later Dave albums, they played Mean Streets, Cathedral was in the solo, Jump, Panama, and Hot For Teacher. Off of WACF was Romeo Delight and Take Your Wiskey Home. Lot's of VH and VH2.

    The music kick-ass, and the singer had Dave's screams down. They put on a lively show, with the singer out in the crowd a lot. The guitarist ended up on the bar later on, which is no where near the stage.

    The ended the show with great versions of RWTD and ATBL. Gotta be the best $7 I've spent lately!

    Where are they based out of, and what size of crowd was there to see them?

    Man, somebody get one of these tribute bands here to Western Canada.

    They're from Chicago. This was their first trip to Minnesota. Hopefully it won't be their last, but I'm not sure.

    There were maybe 150 people there to see the show. It was a decent crowd, but not packed. Kind of an interesting mix. Mostly guys in their mid-20s to mid-30s, near as I could tell. A fair number of bikers, due to the nature of the opening act. Not a whole lotta single, cute women.

    Some of the reactions to the band were great. Other's were negative. I heard one guy say that they were overrated as I was leaving. I though that was kinda funny. What was he expecting, VH? It really was a pretty good show. Like I said, the music was pretty good. Where else can you see someone play Eddie's music so well?

    If you've got a chance to see them, do it. VH fans won't be disappointed.

    Glenn, there's a fair number of VH tribute bands out of Canada, but unfortunately for you I think they're mostly in the east. There aren't any around this part of the States, so this was a rare treat for me.

    I get to see them next month...YES!
    I am really excited, even more so after reading your post! Probably be the next best thing to seeing the boys. I was sitting at a bar and people were talking about seeing Kiss Army and I was just thinking, how much I would love to see a VH tribute band. And I looked up and above the bar I read Van Halen tribute band "Fair Warning" coming... least to say I was a happy girl! I checked out their site, it says they are from Cleveland.

    They mentioned being from Chicago quite a few times. Maybe there's more than one? From what I've heard, these guys have been doing this for 14 years.

    Yup, I'm serious. I didn't mention it in my first post because it really didn't matter much to me, but I thought you'd get a kick out of if.

    The other thing that was pretty cool was between songs the guy would chat a little, as any Dave-impersonator should. He'd not been to Minneapolis, and was wondering where he could find Prince. The drummer just started the intro to When The Doves Cry at this point, and everybody kind of played along for a second. Pretty damn cool.

    Hey Rat Salad...what's up?!

    Well, it seems that there is another VH tribute band called FW that comes out of Chicago.

    So you might have to check them out in Nov. too, huh? Seems like an awful long drive for anyone just to see a tribute band!
