    Here's a full report:
    He apologized for running late because he and Mike had been jamming and partying in Vegas. When asked if Mike would join him on the exHalen tour, he said probably not - he just hopes the brothers don't tie him (Mike) up, gag him and stuff him in the trunk of a car.
    He said the tour is for the fans which is what the brothers should be doing.
    He said both he and Dave will have a full set/stage/light show regardless of who opens. When Sammy opens, they'll play a video montage of his career before he hits the stage. He called the tour "one great big rock-n-roll fest."
    When a caller ask who is headlining the Dallas show (she was hoping Sammy would), he said "unfortunately I'm opening in Dallas . . . unfortunately for Dave!" He said Dave is an OK guy - not his first choice as a friend, but for a rock-n-roll show he is his first choice.
    Funny moment: When asked about his set list he said "On this tour with Van Halen..." He and the DJ both laughed.
    That was about it. Nothing new, but we're all used to that by now aren't we.

    I like the part where Sammy "said Dave is an OK guy - not his first choice as a friend, but for a rock-n-roll show he is his first choice."

    Eddie and Alex should read that quote. You don't need to be friends with Dave but you do need him fronting your band. The man is the ultimate showman no doubt about it.

    Sam makes a good point. Everyone's worried about who "headlines" the show but if the first guy on really kicks ass, then that makes it a tough act to follow for the "headliner". This is going to be an interesting tour what with Dave and Sammy fans getting together. Don't assume that they're all the same. There'll be some overlap but some Sam fans don't like Dave and visa versa. Can you just picture FORD sitting thru some of Sam's, uh, slower stuff? It'll be interesting to see if any fans cut out from the show after the first guy goes off. Not me of course, but I may be spending more time at the Beer stand.

    I'm surprised Sammy didn't choose Dallas as one of his shows to close. Dallas is all Hagar country. The man is a legend in Texas!

    Van Hagar even did a free show there once because Hagar lost his voice, so the band just played with no vocals. Sammy made it up by giving a free VHgr show several months later.

    They alternate each night as to who closes so it just worked out that way.

    It looks like the flip worked out so that Sammy opens in all of his strong areas.

    St. Louis, his "hometown," Cincinnati (which will have a strong draw from Dayton, a much more Sammy-pro region than Cincy), Dallas, etc.

    That could be bad news for Roth if Sammy's fans are half as intolerant as some Dave people I know

    If Sam's opening Dallas, that mean's he's closing Houston! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
