    Sam & Dave just cancelled their first and second shows, scheduled for saturday at Darien Lake and sunday at Syracuse NY. A friend of mine who works for a rigging crew that sets up stages for bands throughout the Northeast was working the Darien Lake show tonight. He overheard the road manager for the S&D show talking to someone. The conversation went something like:

    Rd Mgr: "it's over"
    other guy: "they cancelled tonights show?"
    Rd Mgr: "not only tonight's show...it's over, it's all over"

    Apparently, my friend said there was a MAJOR blow-up between the two. One could assume that it possibly stemmed from the MTV VMA's the other night.

    HOWEVER, a local radio station is saying that the cancellation is "due to Sam straining his vocal chords". Because these were the last two shows of the tour, there will be no make-up dates.

    I had tickets to the Syracuse show...

    FUCK SAM....FUCK DAVE....FUCK VAN HALEN AND THE HORSE THEY RODE IN ON!!!!!!

    That blows. Something must have gone down at the VMA's for this to happen.

    I really can't blame Sammy. DLR has been an anti-social little bitch and he found out that Eddie said "Fuck it Sam, Let's go out on top". Ed, Alex 2, DLR 0. You loose again Dave...

    Lets see what the boys post on their web-sites for an apology / reason before we jump to conclusions. But, if it was a blow up - then they are both a couple of kids cause they can't fucking handle the stage for to more nights....

    It is also telling on why VH doesn't want to be in the band with one of them...

    You would think that one of them would have some statement as to why on their web-sites.

    If it was due a fight , then spin control would be an issue to put it up.

    maybe someone is just sick and thats all.
    Are these two shows canceled or just postponed?

    Like I said the other day if its due to poor sales or a fight, then they are likely canceled.

    An illness could mean just a reschedule.

    But a statement should be made in either case.

    This is from Launch when interviewing Sam backstage after VMA appearance.

    Backstage, Hagar said things have been up and down between him and Roth this summer. "Well, they were pretty good just now, you know, but in the beginning of the tour, Dave and I got along pretty good, 'cause we were trying to make it happen. And once it happened, and everybody got used to that, we went back to our old selves, who don't get along. And it's been pretty tense out there backstage many, many times. But, like I said, when we went on stage, Dave does a great show, I do a great show, the fans win, and it was really good. But all the stuff backstage got ugly a couple of times--I had to sleep with the light on twice."

    You people jump to conclusions too fast. Nobody really knows why they cancelled the last two shows.

    Just wanted to point out something that BOSTONIAN posted that I kind of remember Sammy saying at the last (Sam & Dave) show.

    Sam said something like the tour is over after tonight or something close to it.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm............

    You're correct, we may never really know. Sam will say one thing, Dave will say another.
