    Default HELP! My Tour Dilemma

    As an avid MA supporter and a links member who is dead set against seeing any shows on the "reunion" tour, I've been thrown a curve ball. My little brother just sucker-punched me with the news that he's got a ticket for me, for the November 3rd show at Continental Arena, in NJ, 10 minutes from my house. That bastard!!! Probably getting back at me for the time I threw a hammer at him...whatever...

    So you can see my dilemma, which, in reality is a nice problem to have:

    - I really resent those pricks for what they've done to MA.
    - I'm a bigger fan of Sammy as a singer, although I love the CVH tunes just as much.
    - I was lucky enough to see the 1984 tour - damn I'm getting old! - and could hardly stomach Dave's schtick back then, at 13.
    - But this may be my last chance to ever see VH, given their track record, and I'm being handed a ticket that I resisted buying for all of the above reasons.

    Anyway, I thought it would make for an interesting thread to let all you guys make up my mind for me. Please keep it civil. I myself am wearing a cup, just in case.

    Peace.

    Go but hold up a sign that says "Eddie... I got my ticket for free". That way Ed will know that you outsmarted him, and you've still got Mike's back.

    I would say go for it man. I understand that you want to support MA and that you're a bigger Sammy fan than Dave, but do it just to hang out with your younger brother dude. Later in life, you'll be able to look back and have fond memories of the show and the fact that you went with your brother. We sometimes tend to overlook small stuff like that, but life is short...take advantage of it.

    You can still go and not buy any merch, refuse to pay for parking, and stand with your arms folded and mouth shut. At least then it will be better than going to YouTube and watching it (because you know you will anyway) and Ed won't get a dime of your money.

    Who knows, they may convert you while you're there.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Will you have more fun at the concert or doing whatever else you'd be doing that night?

    Go hang with your bro.

    If it was more than 10 minutes away, then no. But, since that's not the case, go. Just temper those expectations.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Eddie already has the money for your ticket, so the idea of a boycott is already moot. If it makes you feel better, go with the attitude that you're watching a DVD that you got at from the library (turned up REAL LOUD) and don't buy any merchandise. You can even rag on them to your brother the whole time, if it makes you feel better.

    Seriously, anybody who likes VH enough to be on this site (let alone, be a mod), should go to this concert.

    I've liked Dave 100% more than Sammy since 1986. Yet I've been to every Van Hagar show in my area (and some out of the area). I went to the VH 3 show. I went to the Sam and Dave show. I even went to a Sam only show.

    I've been to plenty of concerts where I don't go to the bands forum. I can't imagine anyone who goes to a bands forum, writes posts/threads, and doesn't go to the show.
    Right here I say....

    Graciously accept your brother's gift.


    And enjoy what is most likely your last chance to see any form of Van Halen.
