    Default I want Alter Bridge to open for Van Halen in 2008

    Blackbird is a kick ass cd. Tremonti loves Ed. Creed opened for VH at Madison Square Garden in 98. There's no way Marley will continue opening, so they need somebody; it all fits. If you guys love VH I really think you'll dig Alter Bridge. Ties That Bind, Rise Today, Blackbird, One by One; great songs.

    Don't know much about Alter Bridge, but agreed on the opening act. Marley may be a fine artist in his own right, but his music isn't what people going to a Van Halen concert want to hear.

    I remember seeing him at Greensboro and thinking his show would probably be better at a smaller more intimate venue. The music seemed kind of overwhelmed by the coliseum.

    Personally, I'd rather see Led Zeppelin as the opening act. Maybe you should create alterbridgelinks.com.
    Right here I say....

    Default Make it happen...

    Totally agree on Alter Bridge. Having seen both VH and Alter Bridge live in the past two months I can guarantee it would be an unbelievable bill. I saw Alter Bridge up in NH (Hampton Casino) and they totally kicked ass!!

    Their first CD was really good but Blackbird totally takes it to another level...I was shocked at how hard they rocked live and how unbelievably tight they sounded -- they would push VH to deliver the goods every night.

    And there's your reason why it won't happen.

    Van Halen wants to be the attraction. Not a part of a double-bill/opening act to compare to/whatever. Probably a good idea.

    Personally, I think they should not have any opening act.

    I really don't give a shit about Alter Bridge or any other band for that matter. There should be no opening act.

    Alter Bridge is my favorite "new" band right now. I'd love to see them live!

    Thats not what I wanted to hear but I'm sure this will be the case. Why would VH ever do anything that would make sense?
