    After waiting for months for the show to arrive, last night it finally did.
    Dave Hit the stage rocking into Hot for Teacher, cruised through Panama before getting into the "Classic" Van Halen set. The band was tight but not a lot of emotion from them. Their background vocals were excellent sighting "So This is love", "Little Dreamer", and and "Unchained". When Dave came back out for "Ice Cream Man", Instead of the rambling and tuning, he got to it quickly, and IMO this was the highlight of his show. Although Dave seemed to be out of breath after the first song, Dave is Dave and he put on an excellent show.
    Just enough time to rent two or three more beers and on to the headliner.
    Sammy Opens up with an awesome version of Zepplins "Rock and Roll" kicks though classics like "Three Lock Box", "55", and Van Halen hits such as "Runaround", Why Can't this be Love?", "5150" and " Finished what you started".
    In reading earlier posts it seems that some were bothered by the fact that "Give to Live" and "Eagles" were in the setlist, but I actually enjoyed the change of pace. "Mas Tequilla" followed by the encore of "Dreams" and closing with "Heavey Metal". Excellent show and setlist.
    Now for the verdict.......
    Dave Rocked,
    But Sammy Kicked his ass. Sammy and the Waboritas were by far more comfortable, appeared to be having a better time, worked the crowd and were simply better musically. Technique simply put doesn't outperform feel and soul. Dave is a frontman, Sammy is a vocalist first and then a frontman. The 5 People that attended the show with me, 4 of which prefer the Dave era, all agreed that On Monday June 10, 2002 Sam was the Man.

    Actually I just read the site for news. If you are questioning my ability to make or pass a judgement based on what I heard let me assure you I have worked as a guitarist and am heavily influenced by EVH and just as influenced as SH. My posting was to share my experience on this show. Remember, better to remain silent and let them think you are a fool rather than speak and prove it.

    Maybe, just maybe they took a break from their life to enhance your life a bit.
