    What a fucking night!!! I can't believe how incredible that show was. Way too many highlights to mention but the standouts for me were:


    1. HANG EM HIGH!!!! Holy mother was that good! They nailed that fucking thing!

    2. Ice Cream Man solo - Not only did Ed nail the solo but he played it while the whole arena was in strobe light effect. Incredible.

    3. Hear About It Later - Never thought I'd ever see this song live. So fucking awesome.

    4. Women In Love - Same as Hear About It Later. Never thought I'd ever experience this song in person.


    I could go on and on. That whole show was KILLER from start to finish. Blown away!!!

    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    What an amazing show. The band is tight as a drum. The band just smiled the whole night...especially Eddie.

    I loved the set list. Loved that they opened with Unchained.

    -Hang 'em High made my jaw drop. Made my night.

    -Women in love made my neck hair stand up. When Ed does that tap harmonic opening, I could not believe what I was hearing.

    -Ed's solo was was shorter than on other tours, but was note-perfect. I can't remember a tour where he looked like he was enjoying playing as much.

    -I do think they could probably play a better song from ADKOT than THAT'S THE TROUBLE WITH NEVER. Don't get me wrong...good song, but there is better on the album. How about Blood and Fire or You and Your Blues.

    All in all, the show was a lot like the album, in that I hoped it would be great, but I couldn't have hoped for what I saw. Just fantastic.

    The absolute best surprise had to be Dave. I knew Ed would kill it and the band would too, but I went in there tonight with VERY low expectations of Dave.

    I thought he sang every song like they should be sung, not like he did back in the day by skipping tons of words and fucking around. He did justice to all of it. Plus he just looked right with a microphone all night and sometimes with the mic stand too. Losing that fucking headset was the best thing he ever did. I haven't watched a ton of video from this tour but I gotta believe Dave now is a huge improvement over Dave from a month ago.


    Man I'm on such a high right now from that show. Wow what a night.

    Gotta agree. Everything was 'on' tonight. They clicked on all cylinders, and Ed was smiling throughout...a sober smile. He seems really charged up on this tour...a good sign.

    Slightly off-topic, but what was that guitar Ed was playing during I'll Wait? Looked like a Fender headstock from where I was sitting...

    That had to have been the best Van Halen show I have ever attended. There have been a couple others that have come close, like the first time I saw them in 91', and probably the VH3 tour just because they played some of the Classic VH for the first time in a long time, but this show was just amazing.

    Highlights: The entire show! Seriously, even Pretty Woman and I'll Wait were good. Dave was, as DD mentioned, on point all night. Wolf is fantastic. I cannot believe how much better and more comfortable he looks up there now. Al is often overlooked, I think, because of Eddie but man...he is a monster on the drums. Just so solid back there.

    And then there is Eddie and...what can you say? The man is a god. No, he isn't even a god. He is a Titan. If there was ever a doubt on who the best there ever was this show, this tour has put that to rest. Just awe inspiring tonight.

    What a great night. And, the crowd was fantastic tonight as well. Paid $162 for my ticket. Worth every penny.

    I knew something was brewing when Wolf came over and whispered something to Ed after Women In Love. I wonder if it was on the script tonight or if the kid called an audible. Either way, was great to hear Hang em High!

    What was up with the guy holding up the "AL ROKER SUCKS" sign in the first three rows? Gotta be a good story behind that one. Did I miss something?
