    Yeah drummer, it'd be cool for them to get out there and hit some of these summer festivals. There are very few bands better suited for the warm months than VH?

    By the way looks like I beat ya by exactly 9 months joining vhlinks too.....

    What kind of venue do bands play at these fairs? Just sounds kind of funny to me.

    Here's what it looks like on Google Maps:

    It is a bit of a strange venue. And definitely looks like it's more apt to host rodeos than concerts.

    What a bizarre series of shows they are playing so far this year. I just don't get playing a lone date at a state fair in Bumfuck Central CA a few days after playing a low tier burnout metal fest halfway across the country. Are they at the point where every major promoter in the country has said "fuck it, we ain't biting" because of all the BS postponements and cancellations the past decade when VH went looking to do some shows this year so they'll take a fair here and a festival there so they can say "we toured in 2013"?

    Maybe there's a cool dog show that Dave wants to drag the guys to in Paso Robles, I dunno.

    The only reason they played the Stone Music Festival while playing the Rock USA Festival and the California Mid-State Fair this year without a full-fledged scheduled tour is because these festivals are offering them beaucoup ($$$) bucks as headliners. Think about it: if you're promoting a rock festival, it's a score to get Van Halen as your headliners.

    If there's anything we've learned over the years—with Van Halen, money talks.

    I'm not bagging on them. I say go where the money is. When you have a brand such as Van Halen and you demand a certain guaranteed payday—if they pay it, you play it. Strike when the iron is hot.

    However, I still wish they'd venture back onto the road to fulfill all those dates cancelled last year. Still, I'd prefer it in support of a new album. But, then again, I'm one to always succumb to wishful thinking.

    Oshkosh...and now a "mid-state" fair...not even a state fair.

    Jesus...didn't these guys just sell out MSG last year? Dave must have a hankering for some fried PBJ's or something.

    I understand going where the money is but 1 or 2 million split between 4 guys and also the expense of hauling equipment, doesnt exactly seem like a good deal when they're already rich beyond belief. Is their fee to perform more than that?

    Just for some perspective, this is NOT the first time that Van Halen has played the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, CA.

    Van Halen last played the venue on August 4, 1998 on the VH III Tour.

    http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/van-ha...-2bd3d8ea.html


    They get some mid level artists as well as the normal summer State Fair oldies groups.

    Take a look at last years CAL Mid-State Fair lineup in 2012:
    Brad Paisley, Journey, Joan Jett, Counting Crows, Earth wind & Fire.
