    Would You See Van Halen Again?

    If Van Halen toured again with the current version (Ed, Al, Wolf and Dave) would you go see them again? I just saw a great show in Minneapolis and loved hearing all those songs we haven't heard in years and the band sounded great, but if they didn't put out a new album, would you want to keep going to hear the same songs over and over? As great as it was, I don't think I could shell out $100 again to see them perform the same songs. Now, throw in Michael Anthony (his energy and interaction was highly missed) and or a new album and I'm there.

    Right now, I would go no matter what. But then again, I'm suffering from Post Concert Depression. Seen then last night in minneapolis. Great stuff, but now it's over. Looked forward to this show for a long time!

    I want to see this tour. If they come to houston I'm there. Afterwards, well, it will really depend. I'm not shelling out mad cash to see the same show a year or two from now. I really don't know what effect Mike would have on that decision, I think if all they did was bring mike back, I'd stay home. Now, a new record? Now we're talking.

    I was thinking about this the other day.

    I've already seen them twice this tour. I was certain I would go once, if not twice more. But I'm second guessing that now. I don't know if the "Dave is back" novelty has set in and run it's course or what.

    So for this tour. I may not go again.

    I most likely would not go again if they toured again in say 2 years unless, they put out a new record with killer tunes and played them, or if they did not put out a record, but played an entirely different set. Maybe keeping 5 staple songs.

    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    There's really no question about it. One hell of a show. Considering I usually take the opportunity to see a member of VH whenever they come around, or VH themselves, it'll almost be natural instinct to go, since I'm so used to it. Just a sucker for the name, I guess...

    In short, I'll be there

    if i knew the setlist would change regularly, then i could rationalize it... right now, this tour is an obvious setlist change from '04, so it works... bringing back mike on the next tour with virtually the same setlist would maybe make it enticing, but that novelty is not as impactful because of the current tour...

    the only thing they haven't tried yet (lacking new material) is to do the van halen version of the sam and dave '02 tour... but i wouldn't have the setlist go back and forth like the "best of" from '04... i think they could do stadiums with that kind of tour...
