    Not sure about the fine details, yet I really hope they incorporate the red VH logos and props that were at the BMA's!!! Thought that looked killer.
    Alex will have the chrome & gold highlighted kit, and Eddie's amp stacks will be in the Stealth black motif. Not sure about Wolf's setup, or the stage itself. I do hope they keep the 2012 club vibe but with a little more oomph...

    Dave will be wearing a huge Joker grin, and "all that jazz"

    I think Al's drum riser that we saw on Kimmel, the BMA's, and Ellen will be what we see on tour. I too am hoping they use some of that production value they had at the BMA's, but all of that could have been because the venue had everything in place for the other acts and the producers took it upon themselves to spruce up VH's production a little bit for primetime.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    The question for me is whether I want to try and NOT know what the set list is or or not. Hopefully, it gets changed up a bit.

    I'm sure they have a few very neat surprises in store for us!
    Like the last tour, I'm also sure they'll rotate some newer songs and deeper cuts into the shows.

    Flaming gong Big Al, time to bring it back. Especially if they go cheap with no pyro once again.

    I wonder f they have taken there rehearsals outside of 5150 yet on their touring stage? Only 3 weeks from tonight until the first show. Or is they have rehearsed the music and time for Dave to learn his words? At this stage I doubt they choreograph much anymore.

    One week away. Looks like the Van Halen's are hitting the road today. No shows at the White River Amphitheatre after Tuesday. I wonder if they will be doing a couple last minute rehearsals there.

    I would assume that they would do a dress rehearsal show like they did in Lousville and past tours.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    This looks to be a more elaborate stage than they have had the last few tours! Gee, wouldn't that lend itself well to a live DVD??

    I love the black stealth cabinets as opposed to the white ones they had the last couple tours. Hopefully the lower risers off the drum riser allows for 1 or 2 flying Eddie's!! He still has it in him!!
