    Default Dave announces European shows & 50-60 dates outside US starting late 2013

    Dave was at the Opie & Anthony Show this morning, on SiriusXM, and announced the band should be going to Europe at the end of the year, and doing about 50 to 60 shows outside USA.
    Hope this will be confirmed soon, we've been waiting to see them for so many time !

    Wow that's awesome! I'm glad our fellow linkers overseas are going to get to check them out. They've waited long enough!

    Another cool thing about that is that the crowds are so much better overseas when it comes to excitement. Fans here in the US kind of stand there (or sit) with our arms crossed and say "entertain us." It seems like fans overseas get that you're there to party and have a great time. I look forward to seeing the footage!
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Won't believe it until I actually see them in front of my naked steaming eyes, but at least there's some hope now !

    I'd say we'll get a pro-shot PPV or something out of these dates. Perhaps many.

    Dave's doing a hell of a lot of media since getting back from Japan. Things seem to be moving in VH land.

    VH hasn't been off this continent in 15 years - almost 30 with Roth. I can't see how 50 or 60 shows would make as much as a domestic tour. I could see maybe a dozen festivals and another dozen or so headline shows.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    Bless him but I'll believe it when it's formally announced and the dates are up on the interwebs. Untill then it's just a good idea from a member of the band and nothing else.

    I'm a DLR guy, but I think Dave is full of it on this one. Just a big bucket of wishful thinking.

    50-60 European dates? What are they playing, clubs? They cut the last tour short after 44 dates, and I still believe initially it was due to lack of interest for the 2nd leg (then finalized by Ed's illness), not due to being tired.

    VH can't even hit the US market for 60 shows in arenas, but they are going to go play 50+ in Europe? They haven't played in Europe since 1995 when they were still a big act, and they got zero response back then from the crowds per Sammy, he admitted to being humbled (albeit temporarily).

    I just don't see this. Maybe DLR meant they are playing one date in front of 50-60K, ie a festival. That would be more believable.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    That being said, I hope they at least head over there and play a handful of dates, would do the band's non US fanbase a service to go play in front of them once every other decade.

    You may have that backward. I know the Brit bands in the 80s loved playing in the US because the crowds were so loud and crazy. Supposedly, European audiences are more "polite". I saw this personally in Germany....the audience sat there perfectly still and quiet during the entire song...and burst into applause after the song was over. Freaked us out until we figured out what was going on....we thought we were bombing.

    And Dave just mentioned something on one of those audio interviews about talking to Alex about Japanese audiences being quiet too.
