    Default Their Days Off

    Wow ! VH is performing virtually every other night through the end of 2007 !

    With the exception of these (well deserved) Days Off:

    NOVEMBER 14-19

    DECEMBER 10-13

    DECEMEBER 23-27


    Does anyone know if they have any "Vacation" Plans together as a group ? ?

    And as a side question, has VH ever vacationed/taken a Break as a group? Where??

    No

    Kind of if you count the Biz trips to Cabo with Sammy. But true vacations, I highly doubt.

    My guess is they are playing every other day for 2 reasons:

    1. To rest Dave's voice
    2. Wolfie may have to get tudoring for school.

    uh,they took a pretty extended vacation for a long while
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    These probably are spot on.

    I think it's VERY smart for them to only play every other night. 3 of them are their 50s so the rest inbetween will do them wonders. Don't want to burn them out.

    Well, that may be true, because last night in Greensboro during "And the Cradle Will Rock", Dave did say, "Have you seen Wolfie's grades?".

    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    When you have reached the status of being one of rock and rolls elite supergroups that is usually how the tour is set up.

    I don't know about that - I thought it was an interesting schedule.

    They certainly aren't ringing every dollar out of this tour. They could easily have crammed more shows in, and at these prices, getting a place half full would rake in cash.

    But I like it - going 2 and a half hours a night and getting rest. Keeps the quality up. I've been to 10 Van Halen shows, and none went over two hours. Frankly, I used to get sick of Sammy saying "we're going to play a long one tonight" only to leave the stage after 2 hours on the nose.

    Whoever put this together is playing it all very, very smart. Separate buses to minimize the potential for conflict, plenty of rest to keep voices in tune and tempers in check, waiting before adding shows to make sure you've got an audience...

    Somebody is a pro...

    I agree with you...that is a smart business move...but yeah of course...why should a band travel together? ....oh yeah I forgot...they are new brothers...so why should they ride in the same bus? ....if they are taking separate buses for the reason you laid out...then that is ridiculous...but it is...great for business...
