    Default next tour - what about working some covers in?

    who knows when the Mighty Van Halen will tour again but they were one of the baddest cover bands around in their early days. i'd personally LOVE to hear them play "Superstition" or "Waiting for the bus again

    I'd rather hear deep cuts from WACF, FW, and 1984....


    But listening to those clips man.


    Imagine walking into a club and seeing a guitar player rip like that?

    I said this before, but I'd like to see a Halen version of "California Girls."

    Ed could tap the intro keyboard part. And I bet a good enough amount of people who aren't die-hards think that's a Van Halen cover of the Beach Boys, not a Dave cover, anyways. The crowd would love it regardless I think.

    And they can write that off a Dave solo song that they've done. Although they did do a quote from "Gigolo" on the previous tour at the end of "ATCWR"...

    That, or "Summertime Blues." My third choice would be bringing it back to the club days and doing something a little out there: "Get Down Tonight."

    Of course I'd rather hear another ADKOT song or classic deep cut though.

    I'm with you man... I think they should do a short but sweeeet CLUB COVERS only Tour... and release an authorized bootleg of the old 70s Club Day's recordings...

    Of course, they'd probably have to have Mike onboard for the old vocal arrangements...
    I wouldn't complain.

    Then do another album with Wolfie .. that's cool. (('',))b

    I'd just like them to play some songs from the the other era. Those could be classified as covers, no?

    No more covers than we already have. Play more deep cuts or new songs.
