    Default Another Ultimate Setlist Thread

    Let's assume, based on the last interview given by Sam and Mike that "Van Hagar" tours one more time...at least...also, for the sake of this thread, let's speculate that they are not supporting new material...Here is my idea for the setlist...Some people say play more of the classic VH stuff, I'm going to go the other way and say leave the Dave stuff out. (With just a couple of minor exceptions)

    Here it goes: Eruption

    Lights go dark, and just Ed comes out and solos for 15 minutes to start the show. Then the rest of the band joins him on stage and goes right into

    Judgement Day
    Aftershock
    5150
    Heavy Metal
    Best of Both Worlds
    Good Enough
    Right Now
    Humans Being

    Get Up
    Cabo Wabo
    Don't Tell Me
    AFU
    Pleasure Dome/Girl Gone Bad (music only / no singing -give Sam a chance to catch his breath with a short drum and bass solo in the middle)
    Runaround
    Serious JuJu
    It's About Time
    Black and Blue

    Ok. For the ultimate set, you need the ultimate reunion, which is a two singer tour including Dave and Sam. (We'll pretend that there's a chance of that actually happening). Sam and Dave could alternate who goes on first each night. In order to squeeze in the max. amount of songs, only Ed has a solo. The set could look like this:

    Poundcake
    Best of Both Worlds
    Seventh Seal
    Mine All Mine
    Dream Is Over
    Cabo Wabo
    5150
    Top of The World
    Summer NIghts
    Don't Tell Me
    Humans Being

    Ed Solo

    Runnin With the Devil
    Somebody Get Me a Doctor
    Romeo Delight
    Hot For Teacher
    Little Guitars
    Beautiful Girls
    I'm The One

    I agree, ed doing Eruption at the beginning of the show would really slow down the show from the beginning. But that's what's great about making up your own setlist, it's all preference!!! He has to do it near the 3/4 mark of the show to create a build up. Other than that a good set!!!

    I don't get how an Ed solo slows down the show? If it is opening the show, it hasn't even got going yet. He walks out, plays his guitar, gets the audience into a frenzy...and boom the rest of the band goes.

    The best setlist to be had would be every new song they come out with on their new CD!
    I want something more. I want something new. I want VH on stage. It may have been a while for some songs and not so long ago for others played live but all these songs gives the band a crutch. I say kick the crutch away and force them into creating some new material. Yes, they did two new songs with Dave on a BO and Three with Sam but really nothing has been done since 1996. When I see them next I want to know they are proud of thier new material and will play the hell out of each song until it reverberates between my ears like a boomerang!
    So, my set list:
    from the new Van Halen album titled: Yeah!
    Intro:
    Alex drum solo that turns into the
    drum intro to the new first song (BANG!) on album.
    Yeah!
    Jam it in Gear
    Two Shots (sounds like a drinking song but is about gun shots)
    Mike's Solo
    She said No! Dont Stop!
    Commander Jack
    Ed's Solo (begins with the ending riffs of last song) and then will intro:
    First Time
    Marsha O'Mello Affair
    Only Lie I told
    Sammy Solo...and then Ed and Sam...which has Alex beating in...then Mikey...
    (number one hit) SEXY (which goes on for like ten min for live version)
    thats how they end it....
    of course, echore
    remake of the Rolling Stones "You Can't Always Get What You Want."
    If it ain't red then paint it!

    Imagine hearing Eruption within the first 5 minutes of the show. For a lot of people that would be the show closer right there because many people go to the show to see Ed's solo. Plus if on the last tour Ed stood there and just soloed for 15 minutes without the lights coming on to a song or to the whole band. I guarantee you people would be standing there going, "Ok so when's the concert going to start?". Sure it would be great I'd take it over nothing, but when Ed's solo is in the 3/4 mark of the show the crowd is all ready for him. When he does his solo, it's a good break from all the songs.

    It could work tho. Again, if someone asked me, Would you go see VH if Ed soloed at the beginning of the show? what do you think I would say?

    With no new material, this is more of a realistic setlist than a dream setlist (there would be more Dave tunes if that were the case). But, there are some Sam tunes on here they didn't play last tour that I would like to see them play live:

    It's About Time
    The Seventh Seal
    Runaround
    When It's Love
    Mine All Mine
    (Bass Solo)
    Runnin' With the Devil
    Why Can't This Be Love
    Humans Being
    Love Walks In
    (Drum Solo)
    Unchained
    Can't Stop Lovin' You
    Top of the World
    Not Enough
    (Sammy Solo -- A Little Bit More and Remember the Heroes)
    Right Now
    Best of Both Worlds
    (Ed's Solo)
    The Dream is Over
    Jump

    Encore:
    Poundcake

    I don't write the lyrics, just the titles. lol. Of, course, if you order now, there is a special "unreleased" song entitled: Skanky. Here is a sample of the main corus: "She's got skanky black hair and skanky black shoes. She's got a skanky black dress and she looks like a mess! Huh!"
    Be sure to order now as supplies are limited!
    If it ain't red then paint it!
