    Would you be in a hurry to go see them again?
    I wouldn't, I didn't want to miss it, but it didn't knock my socks off. If they toured seperatly, I'd be more likely to see Sam than Dave. Dave's heart wasn't into it at all. The band was great but Dave was just mediocre. He did little more than sing and IMO he didn't do too good at that. I hope for more VH music and I think a one time reunion tour with DLR would be a kick, but if VH wants to get back on top it won't be with Dave. Either bring back Sammy or bring in someone new. I'd be more likely to go see VHIII a second time then DLR...
    I love Dave but it's not 1984 anymore...

    I just thought about this yesterday, in light of spending $$ on going to the three L.A. area Sam and Dave shows and the $ budget impact on seeing other shows (like the Atomic Punks / Cheap Trick at "Livestock" and the wife wants to go see Springsteen - tickets go on-sale Sunday). My answer, "no," I would not be in a hurry to go see Sam and Dave again. However, "my name is Joe, and I'm a Van Halen junkie," so I probably would go see Sam and Dave again if they played L.A. (again) at the end of the tour.

    I wouldn't, I didn't want to miss it, but it didn't knock my socks off. If they toured seperatly, I'd be more likely to see Sam than Dave. Dave's heart wasn't into it at all. The band was great but Dave was just mediocre. He did little more than sing and IMO he didn't do too good at that. ...
    Dave's shows were much better at Universal Amphitheatre than (the one you saw) at Devore. But, I pretty-much agree with you.

    I agree.

    No way!

    The other night I was watching a video tape from MTV in 1988 of a feature of David Lee Roth. What a difference 14 years makes!...

    Couldn't agree more. I had a good time, but it just didn't rock my world like I figured it would. As much as i prefer Dave, he was like Sinatra or Liza Minelli up there, just standing around. I don't give a rat's ass if he was pissed at the sound guy - he still has a responsibility to suck it up and put on a show that people expect from him. Especially with all the hype - particularly his typical owm ramblings. Sam's show was good, but I was more excited about seeing MA up there than anything else. Solid show by Sam, but still not a knockout by any means.
    I'm gald I went, but NO, I wouldn't be interested in going again.

    Sorry but I can't give an opinion until late August when Sam and Dave come to Hartford. Even after reading all the reviews, I will keep an open mind on both singers.

    We'll see after my double shot of Sans Halen in NH and MA come the end of August. I love this music and hope they mix it up a little from one night to the next as they are back to back. I just gotta get my fill as I have not seen Sam since he was in Lowell in 1/01. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!

    I'll let you know after August 6th. In fairness to Dave, it did sound like he had an off night that night. I haven't seen Dave perform since the EEAS tour(which was great) and I saw Sam on the Marching to Mars tour(incredible!) and one a few years ago(forgettable). I am anxious to see what they bring...

    I saw the first show in Cleveland. It was pretty good. I had never been to a Roth show before. Roth's video stuff was pretty cool, and a little bit dark. I also loved the fact that Sammy played Red and few more of his solo tunes. I will be going to the show in Pittsburgh and Scranton. I will probably hit Buffalo and Syracuse over Labor Day weekend.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    I dug 'em both @ Alpine, but unless I got much much closer seats next time or they radically changed the setlists (which won't happen), I'll pass!

    At least I got my tickets for free.
    Haven't seen the tour yet, but I have heard Dave recently and I have heard sammy recently.
    A ONE TIME ONLY ppv show with Dave would kick ass, then they can go their separate ways again and Van Halen can get Sammy back or go with #4.

    A full fledged album(s) & tour(s) with Dave would be just too painful for Eddie to have to deal with and I want him to enjoy some happiness in his "new life".
