    Default Will the Tour Be Like Entourage's "Medellin"?

    I could not help but see the parallels between the season finale of Entourage and the current state of VH. Ari and the crew hype the movie and get tons of offers before people actually see the movie. The movie had a bad vibe from the beginning, with budget problems and an insane director. The parallels are right there with this current tour (no Mike, attempts to alter history, a crazy Eddie playing the role of Billy Walsh). Now once the movie is shown at Cannes and bombs the cat is out of the bag. I really hope this is not what happens to VH, but this is the vibe I get.

    We have not heard these guys play live once before going on tour or heard any new music. At the very least in '04 they put some new songs out. Yet people are shelling out big bucks for these current shows based on something that was real 20 years ago. To me if this "tour" and form of VH was truly genuine (not just about a big pay day), why not do a couple of shows in small venues like Hammerstein or The Bowery in NYC or play a club in LA and go back to their roots. Not only will this totally juice the fans, but show us these guys are out to rock and have a good thing going. Even The Police played before their tour. I know I am dreaming, this will never happen, but to me it just seems logical. Instead I think we have rock n' roll's version of Medellin!

    Well, if the tour is received poorly I would hope that they would care more than the Entourage tools did.
    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.

    Didn't Eric always think the movie sucked?
