    Default A possible opening band for 2012 tour

    Brett warned me to have thick skin so bring it on lol.

    In all seriousness, some friends of mine signed to a sub label at Interscope might be asked to open for some of the dates for VH. I know that everyone has their own opinion for who should open and please save that for a different thread. What I would like to know is if they are asked and are the opening act for some of the dates, how would you, as VH fans receive them. Is it a good fit? Here are some of their songs.

    Flame away boys.

    I saw these guys at The Middle East Club in Cambridge MA in 2004 I think it was. Thought they sounded like every other late 90's early 2000's rock band at the time but these songs are pretty good. I think they are from the Boston area as well. I know they got some radio airplay around here since then. I'd check them out again.

    my vote goes to Alice In Chains. they toured together in '91, Ed and Jerry are friends, and AIC is due for a new record/tour soon also.

    sounds like a wanna be AIC with a smoother production...Lame -O IMHO....

    VH doesnt need an opener...really...do they?

    No thanks. Like previously mentioned, they sound like every other late 90s/early 2000s rock band. Give me a band with dynamics and a voice that isn't generic post-grunge.

    Vocally sounds more like STP than AIC.

    Going the cock rock, post-grunge direction, I see? They tried that with Shinedown and it was a disaster.

    They'd be better off just going out and doing "An Evening With Van Halen." They've had a tendency to stick us with shitty openers lately anyway, they'd be doing us a favor.

    LOL! The 1984 tour was my first concert and after seeing the Velcros I left thinking that every opening band came under that kind of attack!
