    Rate the Legs of the Tour

    Since this tour had Ed playing at his very best and not his very best at times, I was just curious to see what the rankings were for the 4 legs.

    Leg 1: Sept 27 - Nov 13
    Leg 2: Nov 20 - Dec 30
    Leg 3: Jan 22 - Feb 20
    Leg 4: Apr 17 - July 3

    I saw them during the beginning of the first leg and at the end of the 4th leg.
    To me it's pretty obvious that the 4th leg was the best, hands-down. I only saw youtube clips of the others and I guess it depended which day you saw them.

    4th leg was far and away the best because Ed's playing was consistently solid, and Dave interacted with the audience much more.

    The Madison Square Garden show in November was great though.

    I saw them in Greensboro, Atlanta, and Gwinnett(Atlanta). I would say 4,1,3. Greensboro was special because it was the second show in over 23 years and the place was fucking crazy! I know, well think that all the hugs and shit was scripted in the latter shows but you could tell that the band was sincere this show. It was one of the highlights of my life so far.

    I only saw 1 show on 11/27 in Sacramento and I left happy.

    1st Leg: B-
    2nd Leg: C
    3rd Leg: C+
    4th Leg: A-

    Fourth was the best, hands down. Shit, even I, one of the biggest naysayers of this tour, wishes he could go back in time and choose to go to the better show.

    I was at the same shows and I totally agree. Eddie looked healthiest and played best at the Gwinnett show. Dave had loosened up a lot by then, too. The Atlanta show had terrible sound issues, which was unfortunate because that's the show I took my son to see. Greensboro was special and the band did seem sincere. Dave and Ed both had tears in their eyes when the audience first went nuts. It was absolutely electric in the coliseum.

    4th was the best by far. But from there it's hard to decipher for me which legs were best because Ed had a stretch within the 1, 2 and 3 legs where he was great then awful.

    Charlotte was great because it was the first time I had seen Dave, Ed, & Alex, perform together since the 84 tour, plus I got to party with some real cool people on their bus before and after the show, but the seat I had for the show sucked.

    Greensboro seamed like a better show I had good seats and good company. Also the interaction between Dave and Ed was priceless.

    Indy was good but I did not like the venue much.

    Cincinnati was the best of all they had just got back from the break, it was an old school venue, and our seats where right on the stage, plus me and Miss Fan both got back together to go to the show, the first time we had seen VH together, defiantly the best. Plus we got to see up close Ed, Wolf and Valerie, also Ed’s playing was on fire that night.

    I guess I am lucky because I saw 4 shows that where sensational, but I like Van Halen so how could they not have been.

    Only saw one (St. Louis - April 26th). Man, were they tough musically. From the boots I heard and the show I saw, I don't think any other leg touches the 4th leg.

    Judging by the title, I thought this thread was about the women in attendance...
