    Default New Opening Act for second leg?

    I don't think its Kool and the Gang when they come to Sacramento in August. Anyone know who will be opening?

    Kool & The Gang opens for leg 2 (which is going on now), and Ky-Mani Marley opens for leg 3 (which starts in July).

    Thanks, when I saw the commercial on TV this morning while laying in bed for the Sacramento date my eyes were still blurry and I couldn't read the "special guest" thing.

    He opened in Detroit on the last tour, and he opened with his own music but closed out the last 5 songs were Bob Marley tunes! The crowd really got into the end of the set! I've got 12th row tickets for Detroit, and lawn seats the night before for Iron Maiden, and Alice Cooper! Two nights of balls out rock!

    K&TG was cool & all, but I honestly think VH would be selling out more arenas if they had 1 or 2 openers in their same style of music.

    Van Halen w/special guest Ky-Mani Marley isn't exactly a selling point.

    Van Halen w/special guests Tesla & Ratt could pack a few more asses in the seats.

    I agree. I thought that at some point we'd see Alterbridge as the opener.
    Ky Mani does nothing for me but relaxes my nerves if by chance there is a traffic jam on the way to show and I am 45 minutes late.

    KatG was cool, but Ky Mani is just aweful.

    VH needs to do like what Aerosmith is doing and have an act from their era like Cheap Trick as the opener.

    Van Halen with special guest Billy Squier (sans Rock me Tonight look) would be pretty cool.

    I remember when Kenny Wayne Shepherd opened for them in '98 on the III tour. Saw 2 shows that tour. Have to admit, if you like the strings, that was one helluva show.

    Will say, K&TG was really good though. Great with the crowd.

    I agree 100% ... While I can only dream of a Led Zeppelin / Van Halen double bill .. a Mr Big/Tesla/Ratt or any number of bands ie Slash's Band / Alter Bridge would be a nice draw card to a very crowded summer touring lining up out there ...

    I think Aerosmith and KISS have the right idea with their respective tours ... Aerosmith even are now to play one of those talent shows their new single right before the record and tour drops ...

    I kinda understood the K&G thing, but then seeing it first hand...I really got it. That got the crowd pumped up and ready to go....people were in a great mood, having fun and were ready for VH.

    Hell I even got into and had a blast.

    I remember not even going down to my seat till Marley was over and I wasn't as in such a loose mood, etc.

    If Marley is playing at another show I am trying to get to screw it....I'll pass and wait to get to my seat till VH comes on...
    Imagine a world without Eddie Van Halen.

    "From the moment David Lee Roth appeared at the top of a giant runway that snaked through the Oklahoma City Ford Center audience Tuesday night, he wore the one thing that told every Van Halen fan that everything was right with the world. It was a maniacal Cheshire cat smile announcing happiness and enthusiasm that cannot be faked. Not only was the old band back together, it was thriving."

    I think I would vomit if I had to sit through Tesla or Ratt before seeing Van Halen.

    It will never happen, but I would prefer VH play 2.5 hours with an intermission
    and no opener - like Rush.
