    Default the tour schedule looks pretty resting for them

    I don't believe I will be going but the tour schedule looks like most dates have 1 days rest and 2 or 3 days have two days rest with a ten day break in the middle of the tour. so every show should at least have some energy put into it.

    I think so as well . It gives the guys enough time to rest up between gigs , then put their 'game faces' back on .
    Doesn't seem like there is any of the bit off more than they could chew stuff going on .

    Ultimately , the audiences will be the biggest winners

    I completely disagree. I think at this point given their recent history of tours flaming out, I would've made sure there were AT LEAST two to three nights off in between shows EVERY time. I think one day is not enough for Dave's voice. And if Eddie starts hitting the bottle again or has other health issues they will be completely exhausted by early August. The only member of the band that could handle that type of schedule is Wolfie. Although even he might struggle if he keeps letting himself turn into James Gandolfini. I love VH and want them to pull off a full tour, no drama, no cancellations. I think this schedule might be setting them up for failure.

    Dave's voice is shot, Ed's a washed-up drunk and Wolfs fat. Damn!

    I guess I should take my own advice. Oh well, ok.

    The first tour they did was over 80 dates, the second was over 50. There's not even forty dates, this time. I think they can handle it. The schedule is no different form the last tours.

    The last tour wasn't a flame out. Ed got sick....and they still did 50+ US dates. That's a full tour, really.
