    Default Kool and the Gang opening!?

    Did I miss this somewhere? I will never understand how this band picks it's openers.

    From Yahoo:

    "A Different Kind of Truth" will be released in the United States on Feb 7 but the first single, "Tattoo," and its accompanying video, will debut on Jan 10. Roth's last album with the group was the popular "1984," released on Dec 31, 1983.

    The band will be joined by Kool & The Gang for select dates on the 40-plus city tour, which opens at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky on Feb 18 with over four months of dates through the New Orleans Arena announced so far.

    What is wrong with Kool and The Gang? Summer Madness is cool.

    Yeah, this is the stupidest thing I've heard (since the title of the album - jk). I'm sure this is DLR's choice. I had heard somewhere it was gonna be some young thrash metal band called "Voice In The Wire" but I haven't heard that again since.

    Kool & The Gang? Really? Why not get KC & The Sunshine Band, too? Or how about Tower of Power? It seems like Dave's idea, but it could also be some stupid-ass promoters thinking, "Hey, Van Halen is from the 70s! Kool & The Gang is from the 70s, too! They'd go PERFECTLY together!" Ugh. It's disgusting. I just hope that they won't be opening when VH gets to my neck of the woods here in California.

    On another note, my fantasy would be to see Chickenfoot open for Van Halen and then at the end of the show, they all come out on stage to play together for a song or two. (And then I woke up.)

    "Disgusting?" Really?

    I'll admit I'm no fan of theirs but I'm awfully curious as to how this will go down. It should get people excited and riled up for Van Halen.

    If you don't like 'em, hey, that's a chance to go on the concourse and drink a little bit more. Personally I like this choice better than a Shinedown like we got in 2004. Boy, did they blow.

    Does anyone remember the opener back on '07....it's not really that odd of a choice....nothing should ever surprise you about VH.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett
