    Shows I saw were very good.

    Album is an abomination.

    That's one VH show I regret not going to. While the album did suck, Gary is a talented guy - and he sang his ass off, and brought back a bunch of classic tunes we as fans hadn't heard in a while.

    *sidebar* I enjoy watching the Extreme vid's of them playing Mean Streets. Extreme / Gary are some of the more underrated rock performers of my generation.

    I saw 2 and 1/4 shows from the III tour. I was in Mansfield Ma. when they quit after a few songs and asked everyone to come back the next night. And I saw an earlier show in Boston that I just posted about in another thread. Couple of my cooler brush with VH moments happened in Boston.

    http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/thre...82#post1889482

    Great set list and as a three piece they killed as usual. Only problem I had was the Sammy songs. Maybe I was burnt out on them? It's my second issue with the VH III expirement. I didn't like Gary singing them. Maybe it was because some of the old stuff I had never seen live so whoever sang didn't matter? Hot For Teacher ending! Mean Street! The list goes on and they sounded killer! So Sammy songs and some of Gary's stage antics were a little odd. But so were Roth's. So I didn't hold it against him too much. He did a good job live. Both venues were packed. Second night, the redo in Mansfield seems a little thin crowd wise at first. Understandable. Not everybody could show up on a weeknight with 24 hour notice. By the end on the night it looked like the place had filled up. It was something I was very much keeping in eye on. If I had to work and missed the redo I would still hold it against Ed to this day! Rather presumptuous. I was wondering how many people couldn't make it and had to eat the tickets?

    The III tour was a good time! Haters gonna hate. The album is another story. And here's what I have to say about that. I should make it my signature.

    http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/thre...01#post1890001

    As for Ed's tone. Like it or not it's a Peavey Wolfgang and a Peavey 5150/5150 II. I liked it at the time and was psyched that I had his exact tone live. All ya need is what I listed. And a little delay.

    Oh Christ on a Cracker, do I remember the AOL days (Val was on there too!) when Gary was brought in. Gary didn't have a chance in hell. The fact that VH3 sucked, and it was mostly blamed on Eddie was the best thing that happened to Gary at least. He could make a clean exit. Unfortunately, in the aftermath, it started Ed's downward spiral into self-loathing and destruction.
    I also remember the online Van Halen Mailing List at the time. Old school internetting...lol...

    As for the LIVE shows, they played very well at the 2 shows I saw. Ed was great. Gary did his thing and was ok.

    For me the best part was the setlist after getting starved of the deeper Dave era cuts(86-95). Romeo Delight(first time since 83) fuckin SMOKED. Unchained, Mean Street(first time since 83), FYLT(first time since 81) and SGMAD(first time since 83) were good.

    They didn't play I'm the One at the shows I saw, but Ed nailed it on several of the bootlegs I have. It was pretty shocking at the time that they played "I'm the One", first time since the 78 tour. I mean imagine Sammy doing this deep cut??

    Forget about VH3. Could you tell watching the band live?

    I know some people praise the fact that Gary sang both Roth and Hagar songs - despite his prancing, but what was the take away for you when you saw Van Cherone? A hopeful future or a sinking ship?

    I do think it's cool that Eddie and Mike doing some lead vocals here:

    My first =VH= was the 82' Largo MD. Show. Every tour since some multiple times.. At that point in time (98) the set list is what did it for sure... I really dug DTNW into FYLT I thought that was the best. I was at the Philly show in 98' when a young Wolf came out and gave EVH a kiss and they ended the show with I'm the One and set it out to The VHML...
    The whole night was great...

    It defies understanding that Gary always had a pretty rock image, back when he started, and even now. But for some very mysterious reason, ONLY during his time in VH, he decided to go all George Michael. That was a colossal mistake.

    I saw a show and it freaking rocked. I had seen Sydney by that point and was aware that Gary was not the Gary I remembered from Extreme however it didn't matter. The show was awesome and I can't remember him doing anything weird.

    I was just happy that Cleveland was spared How Many Say I. I think every other show it switched. How Many Say I for a medley of Dance the Night Away/Feel Your Love

    Sorry if that was already mentioned

    There are still some songs on III I like.

    I saw the show in San Bernardino/Devore. Within like 10 days I saw both VH and Pearl Jam. Great time.

    I thought the show was good. It was nice to hear both era's songs, and a song I hadn't heard live before, Humans Being. I was all about VH at that point. Despite III being a disappointment, I think Without You is great, despite production problems. It was another in a string of strong singles from Van Halen. So my memories of the show are good.

    I think Gary's stage presence was an attempt at remaining relevant.

    I was there. Great show, but the sparse crowd was a bit of a downer.

    I saw the III tour in Phoenix, San Diego, Devore, Denver and Las Vegas at the Joint.

    Other than the first show I saw which was with Sam, the '08 show here with Dave and Red Rocks last year these were the best Van Halen shows I've been to. Ed's playing was stellar, the setlist was a good mix of Dave and Sam, I got to hear I'm The One and Mean Street live for the first time and the III material was really good live.

    Only complaint was HMSI for the encore for a couple shows. I could've done without that.

    Yep. A kind VHMLer gave me a ticket to the second night at the Joint because I didn't have one since I was flying back home that night.

    I got to see about half the show before I had to leave to catch my flight back to Denver. Then the fucking flight got delayed for like three hours and I'm sitting there pissed that I left a good show for no reason.

    I saw the show in Chicago with Gary in Rosemont and I have to say it was one of the best Van Halen shows I ever saw! The crowd went crazy after every song - especially after Michael sang Somebody get me a Doctor! ( I have never heard previously or since a Van Halen crowd applaud that loud EVER !!) It was a highlight of the tour. Gary and especially Ed sounded fantastic - they looked cool and sounded great! I really liked the album at the time and I played it all the time - contrary to others on here, I think the album was very good not nearly as bad as some say. The missed opportunity was " How many say I " Ed should have put a solo on it and in concert in Chicago he had a huge grand piano on stage and he played it live it was very different for Van Halen and I think it was Ed trying something new. Dave could not have pulled off much of the material on that album - way too sophisticated for Dave's voice. I do agree in hindsight if they waited until after the tour to do the album or made another Gary could have stayed in Van Halen much longer. Having said that a Greatest Hits CVH tour would have been great and would have sold out every show at the time - and could have been one of the most successful tour ever at the time!
