    Default Anyone think the encore is a little weak?

    I can actuallly take it or leave it as far as Jump is concerned. I probably will stay since we paid so much. But the place I am seeing Vh can take over an hour to get out of the parking lot a so it might be tempting to leave.

    It seems pretty obvious that they are more worried about selling tickets to the casual fan. The encore would be perfect for that fan. As far as us die-hards.. Well.. A little weak, but I am staying till the last note

    can we wait for 1 show before we start picking things apart? They may have more than a 1 song encore. It's just a rehearsal guys.

    I don't think it's a little weak.

    I think it's a LOT of weak.

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    You could make the argument it's the lamest song in the set. I'd rather they close with Tora! Tora! and then Loss of Control or any random off the wall song. I'm not gonna complain though cus I'm too jacked that they're actually playing. Also, like someone mentioned earlier, they may be saving some surprises (set list wise) for the actual shows; I hope.

    VH closed with When Its love on the '04 tour. I'd take 1984 and Jump over a song like WIL to close out the show any day.

    You wanna talk about weak, how about "When it's Love" to close the show in 04. Now before I get crucified, I'm as much of a CVH fan as I am a Van Hagar.. so I'm not being biased. Just felt that they could have done better.

    Yeah, I guess it's a little weak. What would be great is if there is a surprise 2nd encore after that. Wouldn't it be great if they had another 2 or 3 songs rehearsed that they rotated from show to show as an additional encore. I know, it's wishful thinking.

    I love CVH. I think Jump is a great closer. I love all 6 CVH records, too. I would consider myself a diehard fan. I think if it weren't Jump then Unchained would be a great set closer. I know alot of diehards think Jump is lame, but I've never grown tired of it. It still is a bad ass tune. Plus it is their greatest and biggest hit. It blows away the last VH tour's final song choice.
