    Can't A Man Dream???

    1)Lights go down...Fans cheering for an encore..

    Spotlight appears on a piano...It's Ed playing Right Now...The Video Screen says "Right Now Eddie Van Halen is playing piano"...."Right Now, you fans are shitting your pants", etc..

    2) The Atomic Punks guitarist is ripping it up with Dave on Unchained. Suddenly, during the "C'mon Dave, gimme a break part", Eddie comes out dressed exactly like his clone, nudges him off the stage, and begins to rip into the guitar solo.

    3) Sammy does Poundcake as his encore. Dave comes from backstage to join him, riding a giant inflatable striped drill (ala the microphone in Yankee Rose). Eddie comes from nowhere and precedes to tear into Poundcake.

    4) Sammy, Dave, Michael, and Eddie ALL trade off on lead vocals for Why Can't This Be Love...(Eddie appearing at the last instance from a cloud of smoke..not from a cigarette).

    5) Or, for the ultimate suprise (this is kind of stolen from the Eatem And Smile, tour, also)..during Hot For Teacher, the spotlight swings around BEHIND the crowd the a platform above the mixing boards...Eddie appears out of nowhere and rips up the solo right in the middle of the awestruck audience.

    Anybody have any other suggestions???

    How about Rudy gettin' a "I Give You the Mighty Van Halen" and any of a number of the most bad ass intros ever comes pumpin' over the speakers and it's the king of 6 strings and 10 fingers takin' care of business!
    John 3:16, Can You Dig It?

    People, the 6 wings of the Mighty Van Halen will fly again! Can You Dig It?

    You gotta give more than you take! Can You Dig it?

    And underneath the arch, it turned into a march,
    and there He found a spark to set this fucker off!
    Set it off, set it off now children,set if off!

    We are down the road! I Can Dig It! Can You?

    You're looking for surprising scenarios? Here's one:

    At the end of the "headliner's" set, lights go low, there's a little pause, fans getting restless, all of a sudden you here Dave doing this: "Mmmm, da yeah
    Mmmm, I'm a tell ya now
    You corner my dog, it don't let you pass
    Got a bad little' woman, gon' bite yo' ass
    Yeah, he won't let you pass
    Ah, take it!"
    then EDDIE rips into "The Full Bug" while riding what looks like a guy dressed up as a horse, flames shoot up on stage, Eddie jumps off the "horse" and simultaneously knocks the horses "head" off to reveal the "horse's" real identity - GArY Cherone!! Stage hands run out and drag Cherone off the stage while Mike, Al, and Dave come out of a plume of smoke to join Eddie finish the "Bug" and blow everyone's mind!

    Surprising? YES!
    Realistic? Hell no!

    How about Old Man Halen comes out, pulls Dave away from the microphone, says, "Bwwaaa!! You kids get off my lawn! (shakes fist angrily)", and then goes home and drinks a case of Schlitz in his underwear in his record studio.

    Here's one for the list.

    During Dave's set, between songs, the arena is dark. Smoke rises from the stage and the lights are brought back up. All of a sudden, 'Eruption' comes blaring out of the speakers. The smoke clears by the time the song is over to reveal Eddie actually playing the song. He then breaks into 'You Really Got Me' with Al on drums and Mike on bass.
