    Default Crowd reactions at the shows - Good, bad, or ugly?

    Do you think it'll get ugly at the shows or will it be a love-fest? Are people gonna be chanting Mike's name all night or holding up banners in support of Mike? And what if they do kind of suck and midway through the show people start yelling things at them or maybe even booing?

    I'd like to think they'll sound good and we'll be pleasantly surprised, making for a great night of reliving old VH tunes with Ed, Al, and Dave. People will be so happy to see any form of Van Halen again that just being there will be good enough. But I also know that may be a naive expectation on my part.


    My question is: Has VH used up their goodwill with the fans and is there little room for VH to get away with a sub-par performance? Do you see yourself booing or getting pissed off if by chance they do suck? Will you be doing or saying anything to show your support for Mike?

    There will be a lot of laughing, head shaking and jeering.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Good point, but seeing some of the shit in '04 makes me skeptical of what fans will tolerate.

    In short, anything is possible.

    Anyone who is that anti Wolfie/Pro Mike probably won't spend their money on the show.

    For that reason, I anticipate a overall positive reaction (unless it's just horrible).

    If they're horrible.. all bets are off..

    I would think that anyone THAT upset about Mike not being there won't be buying tickets.

    I guess if people want to spend money to heckle the band, that's their right....until it starts ruining my good time....then that would be a mistake.

    I'm predicting ugly. Assuming they ever play a note in public together. Why not use the poll feature?

    Exactly. People who spend the money are going to be hoping for the good.

    If the show sucks though, the ugly could come out real fsst.

    That's exactly what I was going to say. I don't think anyone is going for the sake of heckling or anything, but those that are going with a luke warm attitude are the ones I wonder about (Of course, that's pretty much everyone, isn't it? ). If the show is a let-down then the natives might get restless.

    I agree that those of us that are let down once again by Michael not being there, among other things, will not be there, with probably a few exceptions. I do predict that it will get ugly at some point though! The first time Wolfie gets heckeled, Ed's gonna freak out at the crowd, and probably start a fucking riot! So, at least some of you will go home with some really cool guitars!
