    As the Sam/Dave tour rolls on, Sam will increase the VH material...guaranteed!

    When I was in Vegas last weekend he made mention between songs "you guys are all Van Halen freaks" (in a good way).

    He knows what works and since he's only got 90 minutes in front of serious VH fans, he'll deliver. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    How about these possibilities:

    1.) As the tour progresses, Sammy plays more VH tunes and Dave plays more solo material

    2.) Sammy continues to play more VH until his Van Hagar set goes up against DLR's Van Halen set

    3.) Mike joins the tour and plays for both Sam and Dave

    I heard sammy say it's hard for him to decide what he's going to play and what he's going to leave out. He's used to playing 2 1/2 hours so his show is going to be cut in half.

    I think it's harder for him to figure out what to leave out, than to leave in.

    Here's the "Must Play!" list.

    ICD55
    Heavy Metal
    TOOWTR
    Eagles Fly
    LWL
    Mas Tequila

    That's about 1/2 hour worth

    Couple of new ones:

    Shaka Doobie
    Deeper Kind of Love

    Old ones...
    Rock Candy
    Bad Motor Scooter

    VH...
    WCTBL
    Poundcake
    Runaround
    Standing On Top of the World

    That leaves less than 1/2 left for a few more... [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Right Now?
    Finish What You Started?
    Feels So Good?
    3 Lock Box?
    I Don't Need Love?
    Can't Stop Loving You?
    Summer Nights?
    Best Of Both Worlds?
    Space Station #9?
    Red?
    Two Sides of Love?
    Good Rockin' Tonite?

    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    Sam said he was going to do 6 Van Halen songs, which is about double what he normally plays. He implied he'd be playing about 15 songs in his setlist, 6 Van Halen, probably at least 1 Montrose, and he commented he opens with Shaka Doobie.

    If my speculation is correct, that leaves us with seven other songs that will probably be taken up by about a 4:3 or 5:2 ratio of pre-VH and post-VH solo material.

    Sam likes to play a variety of material. I see him settling in on the cream of each source he has to draw from and sticking with it.

    I hope you're right Stuff, Sammy has an impressive catalog he can work with. He'll even impress the die-hard DLR fans if they give him a chance. Even if they don't, he'll still impress. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    One note: Sammy's guitarist Vic is no Eddie and don't expect him to be. Rather than butcher Eddie's solos he just simplifies them. No prob.

    How long were those shows in Vegas? I was there, albeit a bit hammered [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img] , but the shows didn't seem very long. Maybe a bit over 2 hours if that.

    The first night he came out and made his Waborita on stage himself and commented it was the middle of the show but 5 or 6 songs later it was over.

    One thing about Sammy is he whipped the crowd into a frenzy with all the killer tunes he brought but both nights he sent people home flat, almost dissatisfied with the Planet Us stuff. Not that it isn't good but it's dark and nobody knew it. Strange way to end the show.

    ***It's important to point out many of the people I saw there were fair-weather Sammy fans who don't know anything past Van Hagar or the radio hits. Picture Bob Costas there dressed for dinner kinda standing in place tapping his foot.

    If Sammy ever does a solo show and doesn't play "Red", I will make the full blown conversion to listening to only country music. Thank God that will never happen!

    Looks like Sam sure is clustering up all the Van Hagar stuff into one nugget. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    One question. "Give to Live"....was it acoustic, or did they do the studio version?

    That set list from the 17th doesn't sound too bad, although Shaka Doobie really didn't do much for me. Sammy's got better songs on Marching to Mars he could replace that with. Like Salvation on Sand Hill, maybe?

    Sammy played 3 shows recently at the Filmore in SF with Wabos. On the third night James H. and Lars from Metallica were up on stage with Sammy and Mike. The other band he's in with Mike, Deen Castronovo, Neil Schon, ?, ? also played one of those nights.
