    Default Would not miss a VH concert for the world

    I have to say that this life can be crazily short, often without notice, so I tend to live for the things that bring me the most joy. For me, Van Halen is one of the biggest things period -- essentially a part of daily life. I am that odd bird that digs Dave's voice even now, I haven't posted anything bitching about his vocals on the new record. I think it sounds great -- I fuckin' love Van Halen.

    When the opportunity to see them put on a live performance presents itself, it's something I place a lot of value on -- my version of a religious experience. I can't see any particular number of times that I'd actually get tired of seeing VH with Dave play "Unchained" -- that isn't going to happen.

    I'm psyched for the tour although like last time Texas ends up at the very end of the tour -- although they are usually pretty dead on right toward the end of the tour, especially a relatively short one like this one. Still, I essentially have the opportunity to see them three times in 2015? Sounds good to me.

    I TOTALLY AGREE...Life is to short to be petty...The one common denominator in my own life has been THE MUSIC...This band has given me some of the best memories in my life...For that I will be FOREVER GRATEFUL...Sadly, one day that's all we will have, just the MEMORIES...So I choose to EMBRACE it all...Life doesn't OWE anybody anything...It is what you CHOOSE to make it...

    Van Halen fan FOREVER!...

    I love the guys will always follow them all of them from both eras. I paid over a grand in 07 to get backstage at Greensboro 2nd show of the tour,caught them in Louisville 2012 with that big opening night party before the show. I know all too well how short we are on earth but if I checkout today I got to see these guys a lot since their opening act for Sabbath. I would buy any new studio music that comes out but not a live cd and the live show with Daves current vocal state makes me less than willing to fork it over again.

    We never know when a tour could be their last. No way I'm going to regret not seeing them. I'm very much looking forward to White River July 5 and I hope I can bookend the tour and get down to the Hollywood Bowl Oct 2!

    VH-Tour-Summertime
    Doesnt matter what year it is, 1980 or 2015, still get that same feeling when I know Im going to see the mighty VH live. All the craziness and uncertainty about this band goes away when they get it together and just play. Hearing that opening of Ed's guitar and Alex's drums jammimg before they kick into that 1st song is what its all about. These days you never know if its going to be the last tour, so I'm going to enjoy this like its 1980 all over again.

    I'm kinda in the same boat, Mike.

    The wife and I will be seeing VH in July (either Denver or KC) and the Foos in August (same two cities for choices, but going with the opposite choice as VH).

    I've never been to Red Rocks, period, and seeing the Mighty, Mighty there might just be the deciding factor...
