    VH turned down £6m ($9.95m) to play in the UK !

    Morning folks,

    So they just said on Planet Rock (UK digital radio station - very good !) that Van Halen apparently turned down an offer of £6m to play Download (huge UK rock festival) this year !? WTF !!!!

    Jesus, what the hell do we have to do to get them to travel out of the US for once !?

    Last time I saw them over here was in '93 (GREAT tour) with Sammy. I didn't have the £ for the Balance shows with Bon Jovi in '95 and if they HAD played here this year it would have been 30 (!!!) years since they last appeared here with Dave.

    Sad. Very sad. A very easy few million $'s each and they didn't fancy it. Wow.

    Don't worry guys, we'll keep buying your stuff when you can be arsed to release something. How about you repay our loyalty with a show or two over here in the UK ?

    Ed
    Does the noise in my head bother you ?

    I agree. For instance they called their 07/08 tour a WORLD TOUR. They only played in the US. What a tossers!
    I was surprised they played Japan and Australia on their last one
    One thing's for sure, they certainly don't like to do much

    I think they played in Toronto 3X that tour...one of them was to celebrate BlackBerry's success (the company got them to play and gave all employees free passes)....good to see that (at the time) R.I.M was focusing their resources effectively.

    That is pretty crazy. However, much as I would like to see VH live I'm not sure I could handle 3 days of being trapped at Download to do so, lol. Maybe they do day tickets?

    For those that don't know Download is basically the old 'Monsters Of Rock' festival at the same site, where there's some killer footage of VH doing Hot For Teacher in 1984. The one where during Ed's solo the camera closes in on Mike the whole time iirc!

    Dave would go in a heartbeat anywhere in the world that wants him to play. I'm sure Wolfgang would too. It's Ed & Al who don't seem to wanna leave the USA.

    Yeah, that makes a lot of financial sense.

    Lets all call it like it is. Ed drives this one for sure.

    Maybe Dave should call Mikey and they should get an awesome guitarist and drummer and call themselves the Other Half II.

    And I bet Mike would go play with DLR too, at least for a one off. He seems to understand that it is just rock'n roll, and he likes it.

    Have they ever done a gig as VH in Mexico? I bet Ed and Al are hugely itching to play a reunion gig with Sammy at the Cabo Wabo!

    The bros. can bring down Dave and Wolf! Sam'll invite Mike, and maybe Cherone! Mark Stone, perhaps? It seems like an inevitable and obvious THING to certainly transpire. Sam could even shell out like $995.50 per band buddy (+DLR) and unlimited amounts of tequila, rum, and merchandise for the non-sober musical pals that are formerly or currently involved with tHe MiGhTy Vh.

    I have it on good authority from a very unreliable source that Ed and Al deeply miss their old club, and Sambo and Mike and Gary, too!
