    I thought they were tighter than last tour.They did the new songs well and the crowd stood through all of new stuff,a very good sign. Wolf seemed more professional than last tour and I'm going to Vegas to see them again.Miss Mike but life goes on.The Kings of Rock still have it at an age were most people are losing it. Life is awesome enjoy it while it lasts !

    No Blood and Fire, but TTWN.

    Great show. The band was tight. Wolfie looks like a pro. Bass was much clearer than last tour.

    Dave's voice was fine.

    Don't know why they had to hang that lighting tressle so low for the first 1/3 of the show. It blocked the screen and was generally annoying.

    Can't wait for next show!

    China Town and TTwN were great! She's the woman was decent and Tatoo
    Was ok. Dave did show his at the start.

    Show started with Al walkin out by himself and then stepped up to
    The kit and started bangin away. Then the others walked out
    And start yrgm.

    Crowd was ok. Not crazyloud. Don't think they knew wil and ola
    Eddie smoked the ola solo and Al did all his awesome fills on
    That one.

    Eddie and Al were solid all night. Could read al's lip throughout
    Show saying "turn it down"

    Also saw Alex and Wolf embrace in full hugs 3 times while Ed
    Solo'd. They were just standing to the side of al's kit. Nice moment to see.

    Daves voice was alright,but not great. Still bummed no blood and fire
    Or you and your blues. Was also hoping for hear bout it later
    Oh well

    Also kept showing same footage on screen from tattoo video shoot
    Was Ackward to keep seeing same shot over and over

    They need to get rid of the ramp. Got used only once for 20seconds
    By Dave in wil

    I was real pleased they did Women In Love and Outta Love Again. i don't know if they played that at the rehearsal show as I avoided looking at that setlist.

    I thought Alex's solo was pretty cool and it looked great in full color up on the big screen.

    speaking of the big screen--early in the show they flashed a "buy the album at Best Buy" or something---it was real quick.

    Also with the screen they recycled a lot of the pictures over and over.

    Could have done without Pretty Woman and I'll Wait--maybe new songs instead?

    I didn't think the new songs went over that well.

    The only moment with Dave singing for me might have been Dance the Night Away--started doing the high stuff or just singing it weird. I'll need to hear some recordings of it.

    messed up I'll Wait.

    I thought Hot for teacher and unchained were both great. and Romeo Delight was good.

    I thought Eddie played well-at first I thought he was just teasing the intro to Women in Love then they went into it.

    great show. my friends all loved it.


    EDIT---I don't know if Dave got any of the words right to "Outta Love Again" or not. I couldn't really hear him clearly on that song--but it don't matter. They fuckin' played "Outta Love Again" and i had no idea they were going to play it!

    I think people saying Daves vocals were alright are underestimating it a little.
    I thought they were great, and better than expected. It also sounds different live as opposed to what you see in video, you know?

    I loved I'll Wait.....I thought vocally, that was the best song of the bunch for Dave.

    I also thought the background vocals exceeded my expectations, even on the new songs. They sounded much better live compared to the recorded versions in that regard, in my opinion.

    And, overall, they were clearly well rehearsed.

    Anyone notice Ed almost falling, I would say twice, on Dave's sliding floor up there? I saw Ed jump on it (I think maybe during YRGM at the beginning of the show) and nearly lose his balance. Then he did it again later.
    But that first time, he definitely almost lost it. I could see it in his recovery....for a second there he had that "haha, oh damn I almost fell" look on his face.


    I definitely had a blast.....it was just awesome.

    Also, did Dave really forget the lyrics to I'll Wait? I couldn't tell if he was just saying that as a joke.....knowing his history of doing that, or if he legitimately forgot them, and admitted it?

    Either way, I found it humorous.

    What an AWESOME show!!! I couldn't believe how great Eddie and Dave sounded tonight!! The whole band was tight and it far surpassed my expectations! It was a dream come true to be there. I wasn't able to go to the last tour so this was all fresh for me. So I was estatic with the setlist!! Only songs I wish they would have played that they played on the last tour was Little Guitars and Atomic Punk.

    What a suprise when they played Women In Love and Outta Love Again! Back to back!! The show was heavy with songs from the Van Halen II album, so it felt like 1979 again tonight in Louisville!!

    I had great seats right at the side of the stage. 7 rows up. I recorded the whole show on my iphone for audio, and it came out pretty damn good. My wife shot video with our camera, I haven't had a chance to watch them yet but I'm sure they are good since we were so close. They are probably a little shaky though because she was really getting into the show and was moving around lol.

    Eddie was on fire and was grinning the whole night. Dave and Wolf seemed to really enjoy each other. They embraced a few times tonight. From where I was sitting I could see some of backstage and Dave and Eddie hugged each other quickly back stage during Al's drum solo. So I think these guys are having fun and enjoying it big time right now.
    Damn what a night!!!!!

    Let me ask, was it a high energy show? I know VH doesn't use any pyro and stuff like that but was it a decent light show? Was it in your face when they first hit the stage or kind of mello? From seeing one of the videos it looks like they played Beautiful Girls a little bit slow.
