    Default VH Playing 2 Nights at the Pearl in Las Vegas (SPECULATION)

    Could be the tour opener. Smaller place. Big payday.

    A friend in the business. Makes sense. Tool opened up their spring tour with two nights there as well. It is a brand new venue that holds a few thousand in the Palms hotel. The hotel pays HUGE. They're booked. I don't know the dates but I would assume they would open up at a smaller place, like Tool, and work out any kinks. Tix will probably be $200 minimum. Whether they actually show up and play is another story.

    I won't believe anything until I see it...let's hope it works out this time.

    There you go. I would say that is confirmation. They were already close to booking there before. They are 100% booked right now. Start saving for a Vegas trip in September.

    Yes, I'm familiar with the Pearl. And yes, Maloof pays big bucks for exclusive gigs. And yes, this was the original rumored tour start date venue earlier this year as Chef mentioned.

    Just seems a bit anti-climactic for Dave to return to a two thousand seat crowd even for a big fat Maloof brothers check. I'd hazard a guess Dave wants at a minimum a 20,000 strong ovation the first time he steps foot on a stage with Edward since '96.

    That's if any of this pans out as more than rumor. It's July 6, and they're gonna start touring in September, and tickets aren't on sale yet?

    Uhh...all Google searches turn up speculation printed in January. How is that concievable as confirmation to a current rumour unless one makes a tremendous leap of faith?

    200 bucks a pop? For Wolfie's sake, I hope the beer bottles are plastic.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    I guess no one will believe until tickets go on sale. It's happening.

    While that IS true...most people still won't believe it until they actually are on stage and playing!!

    If this WERE to be true (let's say), I would without hesitation pay $200 to see this band in a 2000 seater in Las Vegas.
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddie’s prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    True, I don't know if the tour will start there but they are booked to play there. I just assumed they would want to smart in the smaller places before hitting the arenas.
