    Default Van Halen 2011 Tour w/Triumph?

    To quote Triumph frontman Rik Emmett:

    "We’re scheduled to go for a dinner tonight with a couple of guys from Live Nation that have flown into town and want to take us to dinner. I’m sure there’s going to be some sort of a pitch. The rumors that have been sort of blowing in the wind are that Van Halen want to go back out yet again next year, but they’re going to need some sort of support to make the packaging a little more interesting. Because Triumph hasn’t really ever toured in any kind of a nostalgia way, I think Live Nation kind of goes, “Oh, yeah, you guys would be perfect for that.” So, we’ll see sort of the size and the shape and the glitter of the golden carrots that they have."

    There ya go folks...more proof VH machine is winding up for next year and that new album

    More shortly...

    I like both of them but something didn't quite sit right with me when I gave this some thought. Doesn't seem like a good match to me. I guess theoretically they have shared the same stage before(US Festival comes to mind). Two different performances though.

    Interesting pairing, much better than what they went out with last time out.
    I am a big fan of both, I remember my older sister had a crush on Rik back in the day.

    oddly enough, Rik was the one guy who took the best guitarist title away from ED in the early 80's... or am I remembering that wrong?

    I don't see it happening. Just like VH and GnR were going to tour. I do agree though that for once it would be nice to see a good band open for VH in the future. I know most people are there for the headliner but for the $$$ VH charges they should have a few decent rock bands opening the show.

    Given the opportunity to bring out their big guns, Triumph may take the stage first, but they are nobody's opening act.

    Beside Gil maybe not being up for it, I agree with Rik, that carrot better be golden.

    i've never even heard of triumph!
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.
