    First off, I'll beleive what MA supposedly said when I see it. We've all been burned too many times to think otherwise.

    But it made me wonder, who will be DLR's band at this show tomorrow? I mean, what is the biggest venue DLR has played as a headliner in the past 10 years? 3,000 capacity? I dare guess the Spectrum holds a bout 11,000 - 15,000 for a show. Don't tell me The Hooters and FUEL can draw those kind of numbers either.

    All I'm saying is that if this Michael Anthony "news" has any merit, I begin to wonder about this concert.

    Maybe they booked this one show just to see if they can actually function on stage together again without the pressure of a full-fledged tour.

    What do you guys think? Is anyone here going to that show?

    I don't know that Eddie's pride would ever let VH play a gig under the booked name of "David Lee Roth"
    That would be a great surprise,but that is a big one to swallow for Edward.
    I'll keep my finger's crossed.

    DLR on Philly radio station interview:
    "There is no album that's recorded in the can."

    He could mean it wasn't recorded literally in a can. So he wouldn't be telling a lie. Am I reaching here or what? Oh, boy, I'm sucked in.

    Dude,
    I think it would be more likely that Ed or Mikey would show up and make a cameo before the whole band would do it.An appearance like that would be a formidable announcement I would say.
    I've gotta think that when VH does a gig for the first time in 3 years not to mention for the first time in 17 years with Dave,it's going to be pretty well publicized.

    For our sake though,I hope I'm wrong and if you are going Hawk,have a blast!!I'm jealous!!

    Hey, we all need faith.

    But give it up. A Dave gig like this being a secret Van Halen gig? Come on. That's ridiculous. I've heard a lot of bad rumors in the last two years, but this is one of the dumbest. No offense.

    If I'm proved wrong, I will post one message in each board on the forum simply exclaiming, "I'M AN IDIOT!"

    (Can't say I don't hope so, though.)

    Just to put things in perspective here... the size of the venue doesn't matter much with a gig like this.

    Radio stations often do this sort of promotional or anniversary gig. I went to one once at Target Center (holds about 15,000) that had Hootie and the Blowfish (this was before they broke big) and the Allman Brothers. Neither of those bands played venues anywhere near that size normally. The radio station packed the place with cheap seats, and made out pretty good.

    I once saw a list of bands that would play corporate parties and such. DLR was listed, and his fee was something like $50,000. That's not a whole lot of dough.

    I doubt it too. I was just doin' some VH daydreaming and thought I'd throw it out there.

    It made sense in my head, assuming VH is motivated to do anything, anymore, ever.

    It was by no means meant to sound like a rumor, Rikk. Just like the forum says: Main VH Discussion.

    Yeah, I know. But let's face it: this story is growing like wildfire, and it's really too much. We've been spoonfed so much false hope in the last two years that I guess I'm just bitter. In fact, by this point (although I want it to happen more than anything), I'm so mad at Eddie still for the last FIVE years (not just two) that I don't really see any reason for him to come through now.

    We'll see.

Otherwise, I cannot wait to see Diamond Dave. I wanna try to get right up to the front cuz its general admission. DLR will kick the others ass!!!
