    Awesome show. It was LOUD!

    Wolfgang, Eddie and were amazing--playing and backing vocals. Alex was, well, you know the drill by now--flawless.

    Dave was good most of the time, but simply could not keep up with Chinatown. They should drop it from the set list if Dave can't pull it off. Dave just talked through Hot For Teacher. I sound like I'm doing him, and I am kind of, but he hung in there and was very good on Women In Love.

    Then, after the show, I was walking home and happened to be passing by the Shangri La, the finest hotel in Vancouver. Two massive buses were parked outside. I was like, "I wonder if...?" There were about six people holding stuff that looked like Van Halen albums. I go over there and they had already gotten Alex's autograph! They said they were waiting for Eddie's bus next. About thirty seconds later, another huge bus pulls up and Eddie and Janie come running out. The autograph hounds were asking him to sign stuff, and he simply goes, "Sorry guys!", with a massive grin on his face. He was five feet away from me! It all happened in a matter of seconds. I was like, "What just happened?" Ha ha! So no, I didn't get to meet him, but it was kind of a little bonus to end the night with.

    I think we'd like to hear more about this line from your review, but I'm guessing it's a classic case of smartphone auto-correct.

    Cool ending to your night! In a way I don't blame these guys for not signing anything, although it was nice of Alex to do so. In many cases the items just end up being sold on eBay by rock memorabilia shops.

    Girl Gone Bad was performed, which they nailed. But they've played that on this tour before, so not really a surprise.

    Yeah, Dave didn't really even bother with Chinatown. It might as well have been an instrumental.

    So it's confirmed that it was the standard setlist with "Girl Gone Bad". Can someone verify that it was "Romeo Delight" in the #4 slot?

    It was about 75%-80% full. I was a little disappointed. There were noticeable gaps in some sections. I'm new to Vancouver, so I don't know attendance levals of past shows. I'm from Dallas, and the American Airlines Center is always packed to the ceiling when Van Halen rolls into town. I had a pretty good lower bowl seat that I bought the day they went on sale. The guy next to me bought his tickets day of the show. Maybe Vancouver isn't a big market for them.
