    Would be interested to know where they practice the stuff they throw into the set list - there's no reports of Bottoms Up being soundchecked so are they getting together between shows or was everything rehearsed before the tour started?

    I would think they'd need to at least run through a new song a couple of times before a show though.

    They extensively rehearsed about 90% of the Roth era catalog during rehearsals for the tour at the beginning of the year when they were structuring the basic set. As in the case of Hang 'Em High earlier in the tour, Bottom's Up kind of came from left field although there is someone's VIP report about them playing Bottom's Up at least at one soundcheck around April.

    Unfortunately, it seems they are keeping Light Up The Sky and As Is as soundcheck only songs, probably to make the VIP thing a bit more worthwhile. Or maybe due to Dave not able/wanting to sing them... who knows.

    WACF - 3/9
    Fair Warning - 3/9
    Diver Down - 4/12 (including Cathedral)
    1984 - 5/9
    ADKOT - 6/13

    Not including Sound Checks except Light Up The Sky, but including instrumentals: 35 tunes. Including Sound Checks: around 40

    2007-08
    Van Halen - 9/11 (including Eruption)
    Van Halen II - 3/10 (including Spanish Fly - I am sure Ed played it at least once)
    WACF - 3/9
    Fair Warning - 3/9
    Diver Down - 3/12 (including Cathedral)
    1984 - 5/9 (including 1984)

    2007-08 - Including instrumentals: 27 tunes.

    I will be seeing them tonight in LA. I am sure it will be a different set compared to June 1. Light Up The Sky will see the light of day. D.O.A or Drop Dead Legs would complete me.

    VH II is definitely getting some love this tour. Would love to hear DOA played live. I saw DLR's band play it back on the 2002 Sam/Dave tour. Another VH song with a great ending.

    I still think if the band played a full album each concert and pre-announced the album to be played each show, it would generate increased fan interest in attending multiple shows.

    Id prefer to be surprised with something unexpected.
    Like an unrecorded cover tune,or one of dlrs solo tunes.
    When they had Sam they did some of sams solo tunes and Sam did some of daves vh stuff.
    So now they could spice things up like that.
    Each show should have at least one tune unique to that particular performance.
    It would be more stimulating for the 3 musicians as well.
    Frank Zappa and Prince used to do complete shows with different material.
    And I dont see the big deal about woman in love.its great and of course the guitar intro is awesome,but it is still sort of a ballad.it should be switched with light up the sky or d.o.a,like they do with romeo delight and the full bug.
    I also cant understand why dave doesnt do the harmonica part.Thats sort of one of my favorite parts on that tune.He used harmonica last tour on an intro with a loudhorn,so why not now.
    Oh well,maybe next tour.
