    Default look in the mirror, this is it, can u handle it?

    this will most likely be THE last van halen tour any of us ever see

    are you willing to totally forego it? are you comfortable enough with what you have seen?

    or do you need one last time?

    Sorry, but this is what it would take to get me there:

    1) all 4 original members
    2) Good show reviews, especially concerning EVH's drinking/playing
    3) Reasonable ticket prices

    Without those 3 things, I will most definately NOT be attending! Most of my Die Hard VH fan Friends feel the same way! As Fans who have seen just about every show in Phila / Jersey since Diver Down, Why fuck up a good memory???? I made that mistake in 2004! I would rather remember CVH the way I remember seeing them then!

    With the state the band is now in, I really hope they do dismantle the band after this tour. Personally, I have no interest in it whatsoever unless they reconsider & bring back the real bass player.

    I just hope the tour brings some sort of closure for the long time classic VH fans who've been suffering for too long. I couldn't go & enjoy myself, seeing Wolfie on stage instead of Mike would just piss me off no matter how well the band played.
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    Ed already decided for me.

    No thanks. I'm pretty sure I saw my last Van Halen show already. That's sad to say, but it's reality.

    I'm hoping Ed will someday prove me wrong, but I really doubt he will.

    my greatest concert moments of are the early DLR tours.... but I am a believer that you can never go back. even with Mike, it would not be the same.

    so without new music, I am not the concerned that it may be the last tour.
    I want to keep my great memories.

    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Ed decided Van Halen is done and over.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    I don't even have to think twice about not going. I won't be there. I simply refuse to validate EVH's decision to put his teenage kid in the band, especially the way he did it.

    The only thing left for this band to do was to reunite the CVH lineup. Since they're getting inducted into the RRHOF and they're not getting any younger, it was the best possible time to do it, as there simply won't be another time. I didn't think it was too much to ask after all the garbage the fans have had to tolerate but apparently EVH doesn't really give a crap what we think. But, of course, I'm sure someone here will remind me that EVH doesn't owe us anything. No, he doesn't, but that's an explanation for his behavior, not a reasonable defense for why he's acting like a selfish, petulant ass. I won't even go into the shoddy way he treated a guy who has been loyally by his side since the Nixon administration, which is the most disgusting part of this whole fiasco.

    the drama. please. not even a tour w/the original four would make me start acting like it's now or never. If I see this show great. If not. Big deal.
    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    I'm not even that demanding. All I cared about was No. 1. No, I wouldn't have been happy about Nos. 2 and 3 if the performances were sub-par or the ticket prices were high, but I wouldn't have complained because at least I would've seen the reunion and there would've been closure. Then EVH and AVH could've done whatever the hell they wanted.

    Good for you. Be obtuse all you want but you're overcompensating by being so dismissive of what people like me are saying. Are you telling me you've been a member here for over a year (and perhaps lurking for longer) and have posted over 1,000 times because you were hoping for a tour like you're going to get this summer?!? Obviously, you're willing to settle for it, and that's fine for you. But I find it hard to believe you're as enthused to see what you're going to see this summer as you would be if it were the original CVH lineup. I won't even go into the fact that there won't be any new music, which is a joke, too, considering the comments by EVH over the years.

    I saw them in the glory days multiple times (78-84). I have no need for this incarnation, other than the curiousity factor and I will find all I need there on youtube.

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."
