    Friday night at the All State was INCREDIBLE! This show smoked the October All State show!

    EVH was so on point that I have not seen him that good live in years! DLR was great, he reminds me of one of the old rat packers, just loving live and getting down!

    Alex was a beast and was the mvp in October, but not this night. Wolfgang has improved 10 fold since October and I now welcome him into the band.

    But in the end, it was EVH who looked and sounded great!!

    Show was not sold out as it was in October, Id say maybe 11,000 in attendance.

    Default What a show!

    Well, I'd been waiting months for Friday's show at Allstate...and it was worth it. This was my first time seeing VH...and this was the show I had been waiting for. (I'm 29...and remember seeing "Jump" on MTV when I was 6 and begging my dad for the 45" of it...I still have it.) DLR is the ONLY frontman of VH as far as I'm concerend! Anyway, the show was unreal. Allstate was pretty full and the crowd definitely seemed into it! At least from where we were!(12th row floor...unreal seats! right on ramp...Diamond Dave 5 ft. in front of us! ) Anyway, as a guitar player, I can now say I've truly lived seeing EVH play live. I was amazed at how on he was Friday. I've seen plenty of the youtube shows where it wasn't all there with him or the band...but Friday it all seemed to click. I was actually pretty impressed with Wolf...kid can play...and the backing vocals were pretty spot-on as well. Alex was thumping away as usual...awesome. BUt again, star of the night was Eddie for sure. Seemed to really enjoy himself up there...and was bouncing around quite a bit! And Dave is just flat-out entertaining. Awesome stage setup.... insanely loud, but still sounded awesome. I love it. Highlights for me were many.
    SGMAD with Crossroads - sounded awesome. Loved the note for note Crossroads solo by Eddie!
    Eruption/Cathedral - I was amazed how much I loved hearing Cathedral live. And Eruption is just mind-blowing.
    Jump - Some have said this ending is kinda anti-climactic, but for me it was awesome and very special. Hearing the song that basically got me into VH and hard/classic rock in general capped off a perfect night.

    Listen to the scream Eddie does on the guitar at the end of his solo in You Really Got Me.

    Outta the 5 times I've seen Van Halen, this show was the most enjoyable for me; and don't get me wrong, they all rocked! They turned down the instruments so you could actually hear what each member was doing. In the past, it seemed loud to the point where it just distorted everything.
    Being a guitarist myself, this show was BY FAR THE BEST regarding EVHs playing! He was really on; outta this world! And I mean REALLY ON! This show was true Rock N Roll!
