    Default Boycot: No Mike = No Van Halen...

    Listen up sheep:

    I cannot believe the rate that these shows are selling out. This so called "reunion" our "new band" as Dave likes to call it is not what it seems to be. True fans should BOYCOT this tour and show Eddie, Alex, and Dave that the fans are not goingto be ripped off for this obvious "cash grab" tour. It should not be Van Halen it should be subtitled "Three Men and a Little Boy". Michael Anthony is more than just a bass player. He is the distinctive supporting and background voice of our generation and he is being left-out so Eddie and Alex can make more money. They always said they would not get back with Roth because it would be ripping off the fans. I always thought they meant musically, now their prediction has come true. $159.00 for the nosebleed section is not doing the longtime fan any favors. They are charging $650.00 in some cases for the first 20 rows. The first 20 rows will put you out $650.00 and for you to be ignored by three guys who have no interest in taking one pic or signing one autograph for you.

    Again, we should boycot this tour in support of Mike. He is like family to those of us who have seen him in concert, met him in person (I have), and had a chance to speak to him and tell him what VH has meant to us for so long. Show Mike some respect and don't pony up your cash for this "Retirement Fund Tour".

    I guess I am just surprised at how fickle the true fans are. We should be standing up to this sort of ruse.

    Any thoughts?

    Got Mike? No? Got no Van Halen either!!

    Ok! Not!
    They are not calling it a reunion, so stop it already! If you really want to see Mike, then go the see Sam's show, I am! I guess you could say we get the best of both worlds!! I will see both in Detroit with in a month apart!
    Do I wish Mike was with """"\//-/""""? Hell yes I do, but It ain't happening so I will just take it like it is! If you don't want to see the boys with out Mike then just don't go! There are to many threads like this already, but most of those people are going to see the show anyway! You never know what will happen next, so enjoy it while we have it!!!!
    Thats my policy!!!!

    Eman,
    Would you go see axl and slash if they got back together for a tour?? It sucks MA isn't going to be around, but lets face it, we will have Ed and Dave on the stage together for atleast one tour.

    And why would you think boycotting would help the two get along again? all you would accomplish is annoying the shit out of everyone standing in line to get into the arena.

    Ok so you let the brothers know that you dont like the fact that Mike is gone? So what? Would you prefer that Mike be in this band and be treated like crap? I dont. Mike is happy, let him jam with Sam and let VH go do whatever they are going to. The situation sucks, but its not changing.

    First of all, it IS a reunion tour. Google Van Halen in the news section and show me one article that doesn't use the word "reunion". Now that that is straight, accepting anything other than the four founding members as "the band" is unacceptable to true fans. We should not have to pay for retooled branding of this band for the forth time.

    Dave said the same thing that Sammy said in 2004, "we are back and we are going to be back for a longtime". It was crap then and it is crap now. This is all for the money and ripping off the fans...again.

    Are you saying that $195.00-$695.00 is worth it without the real deal , Mike, on the stage? Are you that starved to return to 1984 to Dave and Eddie on the same stage? Give me a break. Hope you have tickets to an early show my friend.

    Be real, Roth cannot handle the 50 city work load. Watch as it implodes by November!

    Yea, those are kinda strong words brother.

    I wanna go.

    But money will be a factor.

    Also i'm a bit confused by the use of you're avatar.

    Talk about an articulate response. So, you're angry about the opinions of the so-called "haters," but you then proceed to toss out your own brand of hate at all of these unnamed "haters." Brilliant.

    BTW, son, there are many of us that have enough money to not only buy a 5 Star VIP package for every show on this tour but also buy you (if we needed a 25-year-old ass wiper) and all of your personal possessions but we have no interest in going. Imagine that?!?

    Sorry folks. It just seems like people want this tour to crash and burn. I for one was not old enough to see them in 84. I know it won't live up to those standards though, but im still excited to see them on this tour!

    It doesn't have to do with my money. I have money to buy tickets, but I am not going to pay Porsche prices to ride around in a Cadilac with a missing tire and putz along on a spare. You wouldn't do that and neither should I. We deserve more than what they are giving us. This tour is a total cash and grab. The tour will not finish well and we will get no new music out of this. You can take that to the bank.
