    Who has been the more consistent performer? It sounds like Dave has had some off nights while Sammy is the same every night. Is this true?

    I was at the Devore show Saturday and the Universal show last night. I will also be going tonight.

    It seems to me that headlining does make a difference. Dave was better last night than he was Saturday. But, it also seemed to me that Dave got more help last night from the backing vocals of his band. Just from the two shows, Sammy is the more consistent performer. Sammy has no problem with any of the vocals.

    For the record, I'm a fan of both Van Halen eras, but I prefer Roth-era VH. The Van Halen shows with Roth were the shit. I saw VH with Roth five times, from '81 to '84. I saw Van Hagar 15 times.

    I saw the show in Phoenix and again last night. Sammy has been the same both nights...excellent. Even the same as the Vegas stand back in May. Excellent.

    I thought Dave was good to very good in Phoenix but downright awesome last night! Dave closed both nights that I saw them. I think some of it has to do with how good the seats are...my Phoenix seats pretty much sucked. Last night were excellent and tonight's even better.

    Tonight I see him open and that'll fix me for this tour. Unless they play the Hard Rock in Vegas to finish off the tour...

    Love 'em both but when Dave is on he is the best. Truly.

    It was definitely different to see Dave open the first show I saw, but being St Louis, it just was overwhelmingly Sammy-ville. He seemed to be in a more playful mood in Dallas when he was the closer. Plus the fact that they added DOA by this show helped, since it's one of my all time favorite VH songs.

    Sammy was Sammy of course in St Louis, but I really thought he played better opening in Dallas (which used to be a really big market for him, St Louis level) Probably helped that on that show he dropped Let Sally Ride and threw Rock Candy in. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] He also changed the encore to include Heavy Metal.

    I'd say they were both consistantly good enough to rock your world, even if you prefer one more than the other. Definitely worth the price of admission to see this one 2x, since there isn't any other tour out there that even comes close to matching this one this summer.
