    I'm tempted to go see the show at the Universal Amp, but I am also not tempted...

    Should I pay to go see a show where a guitarist other than Sir Edward himself, is laying down the riffs?

    This is gonna take a lot of soul searching, in a very little amount of time.

    I feel if I went to see that I'd be turnin my back on Eddie, and basically shitcanning myself as a true fan...Guess we'll see how I feel about it in a few days....
    FUCK THE DUMB SHIT!!!!

    I hear you on that. If they have any North Carolina Dates I'll be going through the same thing.

    Why would it be turning your back on Eddie? What's he doing? If he was touring as well that would be a different story, but Van Halen has retired.

    Do yourself a favor and go see the closest thing you'll ever get to live VH again.

    I have know interest to go. I guess if I was handed free tickets I might go. But to go through the hassle of getting tickets plus the expense. I saw them both at the height of their Van Halen tours of duty so I see no sense in seeing this tour. I'm not into reliving the past. I would much rather see a nice DVD of a Dave show from one of the earlier tours.

    Not this guitar player. I think Eddie would go just for shits and giggles if he wouldn't be seen.

    Actually, the only reason that I went to the Sam and Dave show was because I was given free tickets. It was a decent enough show, but you have to have the attitude of watching a cover band in a local club. I had a good time. I may get crucified for this, but I thought the VH3 covers of old Van Halen were more enjoyable to me. But, that is the guitar player in me rearing its ugly head.

    Being a guitarist and a HUGE fan of Eddie and Van Halen....I have to say there is no way in HELL I would miss this show. I am going to be critiqing the guitarists that play the notes of Eddie, I am going to be watching Sam and Dave wishing Eddie was there (with no offense to the guitarists cuz I would love to be in their shoes)....This is a once in a lifetime event for fans, media, guitarists and whoever decides to ROCK with Sam and Dave.....Just let go and treat yourself to decent music with a Van Halen "touch" [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    Just go for it!

    I won't go simply because of the money and I've seen it all before...Great that they are touring, but it doesn't excite me at all...

    You know I've never seen the Punks. If they ever come this way I probably would check 'em out.

    I guess it's just me, but I'll gobble up anything Van Halen related.

    Sure, I saw the 3 tour, and wished Dave or Sammy was up there.

    Sure, I saw the Dave and Sam tour and wished EVH, AVH and MA were up there.

    Sure, I would see the Atomic Punks and wish it were the real thing.

    BUT...it doesn't take away from the fact that I LOVE everything Van Halen related, and experiencing any part of the real thing is 100x better than any alternative!!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Will you go see ED w/o Dave or Sammy? If so...What's your take on Gary?

That's the way it's always been and that's the way it will always be. Because without the music, what is there? Nothing. There's nothing without the music. You can't even cop an attitude without the music (laughs).

    I won't see Ed unless he's with Dave. I won't even go if they bring Sammy back. I'm a "Dave Head".

    As for my take on Gary... That never happened.

    </font>[/QUOTE]I'm not trying to be a dick but can you answer a question honestly for me? Is that because you don't think Eddie is relevant without Dave, or is it because you would feel like it's "cheating" (for lack of a better word.) on Dave? Remember, be honest!

    It's because I don't care for Daveless Van Halen. Never have, never will.

    Has nothing to do with relevancy or cheating with me. That's my honest answer. Actually I try and be as honest as I can here. I don't say stuff to be polically correct or to fit in. I say what's on my mind. That gets me in trouble sometimes.

    Oh, one more thing. You know I have seen Van Halen with Sammy in concert I think in '94. It was a good show too.
