    Default What tour(s) did they play I Can't Drive 55?

    Hello. Just saw the «Live Without a Net» video. Great stuff. I noticed they played I Can't Drive 55 during that 86 tour. Any one knows if they played it again in subsequent tours? Thanks in advance,

    Try this link, friend. It is a fairly comprehensive listing of the general setlists the band used throughout their touring years. This particular listing is for the Hagar era.

    5150, OU812, and FUCK. Don't believe they played it regularly on the RHRN and Balance tours, but they may have once or twice (though if they did on Balance, it would've been Sam's solo spot).

    Totally forgot about the '04 shows. Later shows, but he did do it several times.

    on LWAN that is the best version of that song ever
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    It was amazing on "LWAN", the best version ever, and the same with "One way to rock". Both those songs were staple live VH tunes from 86 to 92.

    I loved One Way to Rock, but I have never liked them playing 55, I thought there was about 50 VH songs better that they could have played.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Agreed. When I first heard it on LWAN (before I got into boots), I was kinda like "Alright, never knew they did THAT one. Moving on..."

    Thanks to everyone who sent an answer to my question. Happy New Year and let's hope we see the guys again in the not too distant future.
