    Default will there/should there be more press for tour?

    should there be more on tv? newspaper?

    should they guest on mtv awards or even letterman before the start of the tour?

    wonder if they have anything else planned, or was the press conference the big piece they plan to use to sell this thing??

    thoughts...

    None of the shows are sold out. Brokers have plenty of tickets for every show.

    the PC was more than we got for the '04 tour... (was there one for '04, at least a proper one?)...

    this tour has good word of mouth... some of the "laypeople" i know who aren't hardcore vh fans are calling this a reunion tour and comparing it to some of the other reunion tours out there... that said, i'm not convinced that they can do stadiums without a lot more promotion (of course, no stadiums are planned right now)...

    LOL.

    Brokers have a lot of tickets, yes. They have a vast network of sources to corral central premium seating at prestige events, including box office in-line lackeys, online queue list proxies, ongoing arrangements with season ticket holders and venue owners, corporate insiders.

    That's why they're in business. That's why they continue to stay in business.

    If no tickets are available through Ticketmaster/Live Nation then it is considered a sold-out show, no? Brokers are a secondary source and separate entity who will always have tickets. Depends on how much someone wants to spend....

    Shoot, they can't even get their own website updated to coincide with the tour announcement! Van Halen still don't seem to have their sh*t together, they're slappin' it together as they go along.

    I would tend to agree with this. I figure they are rehearsing their asses off right now, trying to get as polished as possible, the music anyway. So their presence is low right now. Dave is going to be Dave, with lyrics or without. We all know that once this thing hits, it's going to be a field day within the media, especially if it goes south. And at that point are we saying "told you so" or "What the F*ck!"

    (If so, after 10/5/07...)
