    no no no... (can we delete this one). We have a lengthy thread about this subject

    This is OLD INFO... very poor reporting for this article to come out yesterday quoting old info that came out weeks ago before the tour even started.

    Truth is (maybe) the advance on sales out of the gate were probably soft... only moving 4,000 initially for some dates weeks before the shows.... but the shows have been VERY well attended if you have eyes and can see the crowds from the photos

    completely misleading article. no show they've played had only 4,000 people.

    The comments are awesome. Vanhalendlrband should be VH’s PR person – he’s relentless.

    "The concert comes in a summer when Billboard is reporting superstar Taylor Swift can pull in a capacity crowd of more than 115,000 fans at a New England NFL stadium, good for more than US$12.5 million at the box office."

    Bull. Fucking. Shit.

    Van Halen | July 5-Oct.4 | Average Ticket Price: $210 | California Ticket Price: $390
    Van Halen kicked off a 40-date tour on July 5 that will extend until October 4 in Hollywood, California. This tour marks the band’s 40th year touring, and their current lineup keeps it as semi-classic as possible. The tour features David Lee Roth as their frontman, and 24-year-old Wolfgang Van Halen (son of guitarist Eddie, and nephew of drummer Alex) as their bassist. For this summer’s run, Live Nation projects the tour to gross more than $30 million and finish up as one of the top-grossing tours of the summer. The top Van Halen tickets come for their October 4 show at Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, California, where the average ticket price is currently $390, compared to a $210 average across the map.
