    Just saw this forum as I was searching for these DLR Tix.

    I am shocked that people actually like Sammy Hagar. He is the cheesiest thing out there (akin to Foreigner and Michael Bolton).

    I am astounded to read Sammy Hagar fans challenging DLR's set/clothing/antics as a through back to the 80's with no new material.

    Nostalgia is what people want. I would pay top dollar to hear classic van-halen songs regardless if they band has aged a little. I DON'T WANT TO HEAR NEW TUNES. I don't want to see a mature van-halen (isn't that an oxy-moron??)

    Saw Iron Maiden last year - it was a lot of fun to be part of a complete throwback to heavy metal - the lead singer actually swung on a rope with angel wings burning - hysterical. Who would pay to see a mature Iron Maiden in suits singing acapella. What's wrong with hearing tunes we grew up with. That's the whole point!! Why was the Kiss reunion such a hit. Because we want to hear the old stuff!!!

    Sammy Hagar fans, stop bitchin. Its supposed to be fun. DLR knows how to market this gig. Sammy Hagar?? That's just further marketing for DLR. "OOOOOH, DLR doesn't play any solo stuff." HE BETTER NOT!!!

    I'm glad you want Van Halen to be Kiss. Something to aspire to.

    When was the last time you saw Van Halen perform in suits? Give me a break dude.

    sounds like you should be THRILLED with dave's 80s remake. it's for people like you that he's doing the tour.

    incidentally, since you're into the retro thing, you might want to catch Cher before her farewell tour ends.

    Hagar fans are a bunch of contentious, whiny chicks. Its embarrassing that a classic van-halenesque rock show is accompanied by fans who actually try to sound critically adept. Its humorous to read your so-called musical prowess by degrading what DLR and Van-Halen are all about - fun/hard rock music. To actually analyze the music, whether one guitar plater is trying to mimic the original or that Roth is a decade-old throw-back is funny in and of itself. How does one listen to and praise Hagar's material? Would that include those new tequila songs? Pretty cool I guess.

    Do you realize your post is entirely too much work to read through? I made it through 2 lines before I gave up!
