    Default The Future

    OK, the tour's a wrap here in a few days. Personally, although I felt that Mike's presence was missed, I enjoyed it. I think almost everyone who went to a show did. So...this was unavoidable...what does your gut tell you will happen next?

    1) After the DVD, the band takes a break for a few months, then records a new album and tours again.

    2) The DVD is released, then there's about a two year break. Then, they tour again.

    3) Absolutely nothing. Ed and Al go back into hiding, Dave goes back to performing solo and Wolfie starts his own band.

    Well, it doesn't appear that Dave has burned any bridges with VH, so it's possible that something may happen. I don't think that they have the patience, discipline, and diplomacy required for a new album--nor the incentive since there's not much money in it. My best prediction would be eventually another tour, possibly supporting a DLR era only Greatest Hits album with one or two new songs.

    well I read today on another fan site that they are gonna play Canada on July 4th!! May not be true, but it wouldnt surprise me if the DVD Is released late summer and they do a handful of more dates, probably outdoor sheds perhaps?

    #1. Release the Live DVD. Tidal wave of sales which will prompt them 2 hit 5150 & record an impressive album. Hopefully the sooner the better.

    My gut tells me its time for dinner. Speculation beyond that is a waste of energy.

    Ain't it a weird world when that is a more viable and certain reality than future work from Van Halen.

    And KIMMIIE 5150 turns out to be a guidance system programed by Stanley Kubrick.

    1) Dave will be seen at fashion shows all around dressed like a pimp.

    2) Eddie will be back in "rehab for some undisclosed medical condition".

    3) Wolfie will be seen in infomercials as a spokesman for the latest acne
    treatment.

    4) Alex will be seen in interviews commenting about how great it was to tour
    without a neck brace.
