    Default Van Halen surrounded by idiots?

    So - here's an interesting tweet from the organiser of the Aussie festival. Thought it warrants its own thread.

    http://twitter.com/#!/iamnotshouting

    "I must say, for one of the world's biggest bands, Van Halen are surrounded by idiots."

    And

    "2 months after announcement stll can't get the dates on their site despite daily promises..."

    Not shocked at all..... You would think the Van Halen camp would take some of this criticisim and actually TRY to fix things.....

    He may be right, although it's a tad unprofessional to be saying it publicly.

    What I don't understand is, aren't VH managed by Irving Azoff? It doesn't get much better than that, yet we get reports like this (and witness much of it firsthand).

    Agreed, Dudes probably a bit of a knob himself. And he's not exactly breaking a newsflash to anyone who gives a shit about the band anyway!

    After 1984 this is just the norm. Insanity is repeating the same thing over and over but in this case for mega millions. Irv will have them out there and rip us all off with the tickets, he knows what they grossed last time they went out. No news is good news.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    As a guy who lives in Melbourne (and has tickets purchased) who can't believe the band is actually making the 14 hour flight to the bottom of the world this makes me really, really nervous. What kind of half assed promoter would rag on a band like that?

    In saying that, the VH website is a half assed pathetic embarrassment. (No offence to Brad) In fact I just wish the Van Halen Encyclopaedia could be resurrected, it was a candy store of Van Halen delights and it was a sad day when it disappeared.

    I like how he used 'surrounded by' rather than 'they are'.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    I'm suprised the band is dicking around the promoter of a major festival - i assumed they were slick behind the scenes but it appears not.

    I don't think the guy was wrong to say what he did.

    This is a huge festival and the headliners are Van Halen. They booked them as the headliner months ago and it wouldn't surprise me if VH hasn't responded to any emails or calls from them and keep dicking around. Would it surprise any of you?

    They probably wanted to finalize everything a few months in advance and the only one giving them booking problems right now is their headliner. I can't believe VH can be so inept.

    Nobody's gonna kiss the band's feet anymore, it's a two way street with promoters.
