    2. Mean Street
    3. Just Like Paradise
    4. Runnin With The Devil
    5. Eruption
    6. You Really Got Me / Jeff Beck Tribute

    17 Ice Cream Man

    19. Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
    20. Jump


    I will issue this challenge. Anyone...man, woman , child, or Administrator...who chooses to tell me that David Lee Roth is a washed up, has-been, wannabe....meet me out back..right now. I'll fight that point to the death.

    I went into the show as a naysayer...I didnt want nor did I think I could believe that the man still "had" it. I was proven wrong, ten times over. You know that I will not lie to you. Is David Lee Roth the man who fronted Van Halen almost 20 years ago...today? No. He's not. Is he still a consummate performer, a true professional, a talented individual who's skills are severely UNDERrated.....absolutely.

    Tonights show left me standing in a pile of my own dust...from my JAW scraping on the ground. We had GREAT seats... I got lots of pictures.

    A review? Well. Let's just say this. Stick a thermometer in the ground folks....cause Steve-O-Wabo just called it as HELL FREEZING OVER..with this statement...right here..

    David Lee Roth Is...and always will be, a better performer, and put on a better show...than Sammy Hagar. It's true, and I know it and so does everyone else. And I went into this with a feeling of yelling out during a low point "CALL EDDIE"...(which I did...) but you know what. The state of health, mind, and well being that Edward Van Halen is in right now....or was last time we saw him...he couldnt keep up with David Lee Roth if Roth was standing STILL.

    Point One. Roth's Voice. Still VERY VERY much there. Lost a little of the screech, but makes up for it in so many ways.

    Point Two. Roth...the showman. Worked an already small crowd into a frenzy....unbelievably great show, sweated his ASS of, never complained. Even pissed off security...who for the first part of the show did their DAMNDEST to keep people away from the stage, and INVITED us to rush the stage during "dance the night away". Screw Security. We went, and we didnt move for the rest of the show.

    Point Three. The band. Eddie who? Brian Johnson (or whatever his name is..) is a GREAT guitar player. He's NOT eddie van halen, but i'll say this...he's damn close. Ray Luzer...great drummer...on par and as good as Alex...Hands down. Toshi whatever his name is...AWESOME GUITAR PLAYER.. Todd, the bass player.....bad ass...great great job.

    I was worried about Dave and his "show' being offensive to the crowd at the park. He was nothing of the sort. He tamed his language, not one dirty word....not one sick gesture (except to tell the lady in the front row to quit acting like a slut...) Very professiona.

    High points of the night..,,Just Like Paradise....personal Favorite

    Low Point... Ice Cream Man. Just didnt 'have' it.

    Missing In Action. "Yankee Rose" and "Goin Crazy". My #2 and #3 favorite roth songs...and he didnt even perform them. Too bad..I'd have loved to hear them.

    In closing. Yes. David Lee Roth...is STILL "David Lee Motha Fuckin Roth". He's still got it, and Edward, if you're reading this. Clean it up, tone it up, polish the axe....and give The Diamond One a call. You could make BEAUTIFUL music together again. Dave said it best...."You can't get this stuff no more".....at least not like Roth gave tonite!

    Pictures to follow.

    The guitar player is Brian Young. He is very good. I don't think Ray Luzier or watever his name is, is as good as Alex. Apart from David Lee Roth, this band is just a tribute band. Roth is why you buy the tickets.

    Glad to hear that it was a great show, I hope he comes up to Canada and doesn't play a casino so I can actually go see him!

    I noticed in your pictures that the venue didn't seem full at all. It seemed like half of the seats were empty.

    Good to see he's still mixing it up. "Jamie's Cryin'," eh? I don't remember him playing that much in the last few years. That's awesome. "Beautiful Girls" is a nice add too. I wish he was coming around here this summer. Great review

    Glad you enjoyed the show, but was it necessary to bring Sammy into it? Why can't you praise Dave without slamming Sammy at the same time? Both are great frontmen, why not just leave it at that.

    I'm going to see Dave in August, and I'm looking forward to it.

    Yes. It was. It wasn't a slam, it was a statement of facts, and if this is truly a Van Halen page, instead of the Pro Sammy stuff that this page has a reputation of being...then you should be able to appreciate it.

    I'm glad you've enjoyed the show. However, look at the setlist - it's 99% Van Halen with just two-three solo DLR tunes in there. I agree Dave is an outstanding performer, I could even believe that he's still a good live singer nowadays, but he's definately not a musician nor a songwriter. Lyricist yes, but he stopped writing lines once he recorded his all-covers album. And since you've brought Sam to this - look at the threads about his recent San Lucas concerts. Two and a half hours+ gigs almost all solo almost all post-Van Halen, 3-4 VH tunes and solo stuff again. Just a statement of facts.

    Yes, DAVID LEE ROTH is primarily a lyricist and not a song writer. But you've made the same mistake SAMMY HAGAR did, you forgot about his harmonies.
