    Default Overall disappointed or excited about the current setlist?

    So, given that we've at least got the groundwork for what the setlist seems to be going like (for a little while, at least) on this tour...are you guys overall content/excited about this setlist or disappointed? Do tell.

    Much like a lot of you, I wish they'd at least dump 1 or 2 of the following: ICM, I'll Wait and Pretty Woman and maybe add at least 2 ADKOT songs to the setlist.

    It's a decent setlist and though most of us would ditch I'll Wait and Pretty Woman they were big hits. I could stomach them keeping I'll Wait if they'd ditch PW cos it's not a VH song.

    Having said that, as it's unlikely they've tour the UK (that's the next VH miracle I'm hoping for) I'll need to hope for a DVD. Keep GGB in there and as the show is only 1hr 50mins cos of Al's short drum solo and no encore, add in one or two more ADKOT songs to at least make it up to 2hrs.

    After reading some reviews so far...I can see why they haven't added more ADKOT songs, and haven't dropped some of classics like Pretty Woman and ICM.

    Most people at the show are NOT die-hards like us!
    Most might have heard Tattoo but maybe not the rest of the album, so they take piss breaks during the show when the unknown material comes up.

    I'd like some changes..but understand if they don't change..or at least not until later in the tour.

    Here's my ESPN keys to the game after the first media time out.


    -replace "I'll Wait" 'Pretty Woman" and "Ice Cream Man" with "As Is" "Honeysweetiebabydoll" and "Stay Frosty"

    -keep rotating classic obscure songs in that spot for "Outta Love" and "Girl Gone Bad"--work up at least 10 songs there and keep rotating them!

    -Remind Eddie that he needs to be there for all the backup vox!

    -Tell Dave to go back to singing "Dance The Night Away" the original way!

    I'm overall happy and excited that I will be seeing them live, sober and tight once again.
    They could play Oh Canada in 20 different pitches and I'd probably be happy!! : )
    You'll get some leg tonight for sure!!
    Tell us how you do!!

    Emperor Brett : Bottom line, we haven't heard SHIT yet, stop bitching about nothing and enjoy the anticipation of the first new Van Halen album in 14 FUCKING years!!!!!

    Which Brett followed with : Some of you guys will fucking bitch about ANYTHING. I mean A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G.

    I second all of this. I will also require Light Up the Sky, Hear About It Later and Take Your Whiskey Home in the 10 rotated songs list.

    I mentioned this in another post, but I'd love it if they played ADKOT in its entirety, then did a 5-6 song encore of classics.

    But that's just me...

    So far it's what I expected...

    These changes I would make however...

    1. Open up with Unchained
    2. Replace PW with Blood and Fire
    3. Replace YRGM with Stay Frosty

    Prety excited. It's not perfect, but the fact they're rotating in WIL, OLA, and GGB is pretty damn cool.

    Based on Eddie's tweet from two years ago, I bet that the next show, people will get to hear Drop Dead Legs.

    "We played a bunch of songs that we didn't play on the last tour like "Drop Dead Legs", "Girl Gone Bad" and "Outta Love Again"!"

    I'd go bananas if they played DDL. It's greasy with swagger and attitude. Love that song. Technically easier than GGB in every area. No reason why they couldn't.

    Prepare to shed peels all over the floor. So far they've played every tune on that list BUT DDL.

    The thought of the outro in my head right now is making me salivate.

    Wait, I'm just hungry and it's lunch time, but DDL still rawks!

    I'm not exactly sure Al could pull off the outro live. On the album version it sounds like there is a lot of overdub going on. We probably won't hear it. Oh well, at least we have this:

    Assumptions: 1) same # of songs and 2) same # of ADKOT songs (as much as I'd like 5 or 6 songs, when the large majority of people attending don't know the songs, getting to hear 4 songs is about all we can expect)

    - Drop "I'll Wait" for "Drop Dead Legs"
    - Drop "Trouble With Never" for "Stay Frosty"
    - Drop "Pretty Woman" for "Little Guitars"
    - Drop "Romeo Delight" for "In A Simple Rhyme" (I love "Romeo Delight" but I've seen it done multiple times now, so I'd like a song I've never seen by them)

    That's about it in terms of realistic possible changes. All the other old songs are massive radio hits and there is no way a song like "Ice Cream Man" (which, besides being real popular with the general fan also gives Dave a brief "solo) or "Dance the Night Away" is going to fall off the set list.

    Perhaps once they get warmed up, they'll start doing an actual encore (e.g., 2 or 3 songs) and they can start working in songs like "DOA" or ""Take Your Whiskey Home".
