    Default Two Weeks To Go! Post Your Final 2007 Tour Predictions Here

    We've heard from the disgruntled guitar tech, we've seen the rehearsal pics and read the reports from there. We all watched the press conference. We've heard Mike's take on the situation.

    So, what's going to happen?

    I admit that I'm confused. My personal theory has always been, Shirtless Eddie=Drunk Eddie. But the pics and reviews from the rehearsals seem to disprove that. So I don't know.

    My prediction right now is that the tour will go well. The boys will be professionals, Wolfie will do a good job, and the reviews will be mixed between joy at the successful reunion and disdain for a nostalgia act.

    Im hoping eddie learned from 04 that his drunken onstage behavior is not going to fly. If that is the case then all should be well. The disgruntled guitar tech thing doesnt bother me that much, both of the reviews that we've heard from rehersals have been positive, and obviously the proof is going to be in the pudding, but I have a feeling having Roth and Wolfgang in the band are the creative spark that Eddie needed to get off his tail and do something postive for once...

    As long as they have fun and enjoy what they are doing, it will be great.

    I'm hoping for return to form?

    Anyways, I think will kick ass!!

    Dave - Will be so fired up just to be in front of people again that he'll fall into his usual trap of diarrhea of the mouth. But I think he'll sing well.

    Ed - I think he'll kick ass because he's sober again. There will be a lot of hugs and happy horse shit with Dave on stage but it'll be hard to figure out if it's genuine or just for show. I'm putting a lot of blind faith in him.

    Al - Al is Al. He'll be his usual steady drummer self.

    Wolfie - Will be the most pleasant surprise. I really feel good about the effort that he'll give. I think a lot of people will leave the venue with a new found appreciation for him.



    Overall I think they'll put on a solid show and I'm looking forward to it a lot more than I was a month ago. Those rehearsal pictures really fired me up. I expect them to sound good and I don't know how the setlist could possibly disappoint.

    Great reviews early on, things get rocky mid-tour (Dave's antics bother ED, AGAIN!), possible re-lapse due to tensions within the band (although, I hope not), band holds things together for rest of tour (good nights, bad nights), band can't stand each other by tours end (except for Wolfie & Ed), band disbands! (don't rule out Wolf being pulled off tour if things get hairy! ) Don't shoot me for this post, I'm going with my gut feelings on this one.

    I voted the third one. It's gonna be a fine tour. They will complete their scheduled run and people will have a good time.
    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.

    OK Clubber. Don't forget that he got knocked out in that fight.

    I think the tour will be successful. I want it to be but I think there is too much at stake for it too fail.

    My prediction is that the tour will be a big success and more shows will be added in October/November.

    Dave and Ed will get along fine and Wolfie will play awesome. He might not jump around and bang on his JD bass like MA but I dont care about that. Stage presence is for the lead singer and for Eddie. Wolfie can sit back and just play for all I care....just sound great that's all I want.

    Alex will be his usual rock steady drummer he always is.

    This will blow away all the nay sayers. Expect a full report from me on Aug 28 after the show in Charlotte!

    I agree with opening with Romeo Delight. And since it looks like all the songs from VH-I are on the set list, it would be cool if they played that album in its entirety and in order. So I guess Eruption (in it's entirety - not just the fancy chopped up pieces) then YRGM then ATBL..... Kind of a Pink Floyd-esque set list. Then do all the others from the set list. I'm sure that won't happen tho. So that's my prediction. lol

    After reading what Scott Ian of Anthrax had to say about the VH rehearsal he went to, my hopes and expectations for this tour went up substantially. If another professional musician said they sound great and that Dave vocals sound good I think we can expect a better effort on this tour than on their last tour. Sounds like Ed is bringing it. Hope it brings it every night.
