    Default Great show!

    Okay, well, that was fun! I've never seen DLR before, so this was my first time seeing Van Halen perform all these old tunes. But where I was sitting, row 5 in section 107 (Just a bit behind the floor seats), the audio wasn't great. It was pretty echo-y by time the sound hit my ears.

    But hearing them rock out classics like The Full Bug, I'll Wait and Hot For Teacher was incredible. Dave also went on some awesome long-winded rants which I absolutely love to listen to. He's funny and poetic and crude and ironic... just hilarious.

    Great show, though - can't wait to see them again on Tuesday in San Jose!

    Me go sleep now.

    Nope, but my buddy and I parked in the BART parking lot. Made the long trek over the foot bridge and back.

    Really enjoyed the show. Extended review later.

    Didn't ride BART. Drove into an empty parking lot....but inside was full.

    Great show. EVH was just....wow. Tearfully great. Loved Al and Wolf.

    DLR was a showman and I enjoyed that part, but his vocals were between completely horrible and barrel full of of broken glass. I stayed away from almost all YouTube vids and reviews to this point, but wow. Dave doesn't sound good.

    Ending this on a positive note...man, Ed sounds amazing. Best I've seen since Balance in '95. Glad to have the King back.

    Van Halen returning to the venue where it recorded the famous 1981 videos. Pretty good show overall, seems like the band enjoys getting out there and playing. Roth's voice was a lot better than the last time I saw them in D.C., but is still a little funky. Roth's schtick is a bit odd throughout the night, the dude has lost a few marbles along the way. But the band is tight and Eddie is great, right behind Jimi as the best ever. He did flub a few notes, most notably the intro to "Women in Love" but overall he is a marvel, still most exciting guitar player out there. He played the "Smoke on the Water " riff during "Cradle." Hard to miss him if he is in town especially with Roth at the mic with the classic material.
    I BARTed from SF, hard to pay $35 for parking!!
