    So, who's traveling farthest to see VH - 3300 miles, here!

    I bit the bullet and booked a ticket for the New Jersey show (it would've been Madison Square Garden, but it sold out too quick). Given the distance I have to travel to Dublin airport for my flight, it comes in around 3300 miles.

    I should make it clear, I'm treating this as a vacation to New York, which is something I've always wanted to do. The Mighty VH just kind of clinched it for me, and now's the time to do it. They better not implode before November!

    Was thinking about doing it from England - but couldn't justify the cost or find anyone willing to travel with me.

    Hopefully they'll get to Europe next year......

    Good for you Charvel2. Enjoy the show and enjoy NYC. One of the things you should see while you are here is The Museum of Natural History. One of my personal favorites since I was a kid. You won't be able to see the whole museum in one day though. Have fun.

    If my friend and I get tickets to the new jersey show then we'll travel about 4100 miles from Helsinki to see the show. I know they started selling tickets yesterday but we kinda calculated the time zone wrong so we're hoping to get tickets off e-bay...

    Wow! That is really cool that some are traveling such distances. I saw in the Oakland thread that Uncle Ted is making the trip from Brazil. I salute you all!

    6500 miles from Sao Paulo, Brasil to LA and San Francisco, CA

    hard to beat me, but i think that there is someone from Australia, going to LA, so he'll be the winner.

    Impressive travel plans! Miles mean nothing to me.

    I never saw VH with DLR, so it's like I'm travelling 22 years to see this show.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    I'm traveling zeros of miles, so I'm not in contention.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    Damn it, I'm being left in the dust with my paltry 3300 miles.
