    We heard the band doing Running with Devil from outside the Toyota center earlier as we were walking past to go down to The Flying Saucer for a preshow stout. Pretty awesome! Poor man's soundcheck!

    Would be cool if this group got a surprise adkot tune or deep cut not yet played.

    Only this and one other show left so unlikely but man I'd love to hear the whole band bang out As Is or LUTS!

    Just got back to our hotel. We shot the first hour of video before the camera battery died, but can't upload anything until we get back to Dallas after the New Orleans show. Tonight was the best concert Ive ever seen. Period.
    The whole band is just purring like a big block V8 right now!
    Awe inspiring.
    DAVID LEE ROTH WAS TOTALLY PERFECT!
    I mean anyone who saw that show and had a single complaint about Dave is either a moron or is not a real fan of this band, because tonight was better than Dallas and I thought Dallas kicked ass.

    Might chime back in with details later, but too tired now
    Long Live VH!!!

    Just got back from the concert! Wow! We were in lower section, Eddie's side (Section 106, 7th row). The band was on fire and tight. Alex's drum solo is so musical and amazing with all the percussion stuff going on. Wolfgang was great. Eddie was amazing. Ed's playing was breathtaking all night. Dave was GREAT! He sang well (and in key) through the whole set. What surprised me is Dave hit at least 10 screams through the night. I'm talking high pitch and powerful. I guess Dave's request of having the venue cut off the blowers (and some portion of the house A/C) is working well for his voice. My son and I had a great time. Gotta go. I hope the ringing in my ears stops soon (ha!). It was worth the wait for VH to roll into H-town.

    I thought the San Antonio show was good. The Houston show was even better, and much better than both 2008 shows I saw. The sound mix was a lot better too! Eddie IS back and Dave sounded good and Can still sing.
