    Default Why did they quit playing 5150?

    I'm bored so I thought I'd post this.

    After the 5150 or maybe OU812 Tour (I can't remember if they played it during the OU812 Tour), they just never played it anymore. Its probably one of the best songs they ever did from the Sammy version of the group. Easily the best song on the album in my opinion. Was it out of Sammy's range as he got older? Did they just not like the song anymore? The only songs they played from that album on later tours were Why Can't This Be Love and Best of Both Worlds. Snore...

    I noticed that too and it pissed me off that it isnt featured on Right Here, Right Now. They didnt play that song in the 90's at all. And yes it was played on the OU812 tour.

    Didn't they play 5150 a few select times during the Balance tour, maybe overseas? Not sure.

    They did play it in Europe during 93 or so (dates are slipping my brain).

    I think they quit playing it because Eddie couldn't do it anymore... It was great in 86, but he went into auto-pilot mode shortly thereafter.

    Really annoyed me in 2004 when Sammy kept saying "Its 5150 Timmmmeeee" and they played something else off of 5150.

    VH's setlists tended to really favor the hits during the Sam era. From 5150 the album, Dreams WCTBL, and BOBW were all better known songs and therefore were included. Just like you knew that WIL and FWYS would most likely be representing OU812.

    It's too bad because quite often the best Sam songs were not the "hits" and songs like 5150, Summer Nights, Cabo Wabo, etc. got left out.

    Yeah, exactly! He would always yell, "Its 5150 Time!" But then they would play Best of Both Worlds. Yawn. I mean, if your going to say "Its 5150 time", then play 5150!

    It was almost as bad as them teasing us with Everybody Wants Some and then playing Panama.

    5150 is easily the best Sammy era VH song.....and you're probably right about 2004. Sadly.

    It's my all-time fav from 5150. I especially love the solo from LWAN. A few months after I bought my first guitar, the first effects pedal I bought was a BOSS delay. I must've taken me all day or so to get the solo right.
