    I made a phone call to the club Dave's going to be playing at. Here's the scoop:

    Bands: Blue Oyster Cult, Firehouse, Jackyl, Great White, Warrant, Cinderella, and DLR.

    Dave is the headliner, and will play for an hour and a half. He's been contracted to play mostly Van Halen tunes, with a few solo tunes thrown in. The setlist wasn't yet available, and the guy I talked to had no info on the backing band.

    It'll be an outdoor, all-day festival. 10,000 capacity, with tickets for $35 available at the club now. They may contract ticket sales with ticketmaster, but that hasn't been decided yet.

    June 23rd, The Rock, Maplewood Minnesota. 651-770-7822. www.therocknightclub.net has some of the info, but hasn't been updated yet.

    Who's all going?

    That's an interesting concept - never heard of an artist being "contracted" to play a specific setlist!

    I know. I asked if they knew what he'd be playing, and the guy said the contract was for mostly VH stuff, with a small amount of solo material. I'd guess it'll be pretty much the same as what was played in the clubs on the '99 tour.

    I asked if they had a setlist available, but he said that hasn't been finalized yet and they should have it next week. Surprising, eh?

    Dave being contracted to play primarily VH tunes is a bad sign that he's totally viewed as an 80's artist, a nostaliga act, a thing of the past.

    Whether he's still going to wind up in VH or not, I find it sad to see Dave playing a setlist that almost fully relies on material that is 16+ years old.

    And I don't buy any theory about trying to prove to VH that he can still sing being the reason for his desire to play a heavily VH set list. I doubt it's that important to VH that he can sing specific songs, just that he can sing period.

    I also wish that Dave would play mostly solo songs, he has tons of great songs from his solo career.

    I knew the feeling. I lived here for years, moved away for 4, and have been back in MN few almost 2 now. I can't remember a damn thing about the various suburbs!

    I'm gonna head on up to Maplewood after work tomorrow, and pick up a couple of tickets. I'll let y'all know if I find anything else out.

    What I really want to know is if there'll be a Club Dave.
