It was 3/26/04. The official announcement was made. We had already heard that the band was going to hit the road a few days earlier. But with who???

3/26/04 Van Halen 2004 Tour was announced! First time on the road in years. I wasn't 'round these parts alot yet, so you all probably knew a little earlier. Still big news!:D

Duh, I was just about to start a thread in main on it :D.

That day was something, I remember Brett setting users' being logged-in limit for server not to crash! I've printed V-H.com front page and now have it hangin on a backside of my door.

The day all naysayers had to shut up :thumb:

Yes, that was a great day to be a Van Halen fan. Hopefully, we will have more days like that in the future.

I was jacked to see Eddie again on stage, however a little surprised though, I thought they would try and get both Sam and Dave involved somehow, after the tour the two did together.

It was a great day...I woke up in the morn and saw they were going on tour...and I couldn't help myself...had to wake the wife up and let her know...lol...she is a very understanding woman, she knows how much this band means to me. C'mon it had been a LONG time!! When VH is on stage...all just seems right in this world! :D

Yeah it was an exciting day to get the official word not to mention it being also my brothers birthday. Hopefully we'll get another tour announcement later this year.

I remember I was looking on the Excel Energy Center website to look for concerts, and I saw the words Van Halen and I almost fainted. I had to beeeeeeg my parents for so long to go, but I finally got to. Let's hope there's more VH to come!

Yeah rock is suffering lately, the good bands that are out these days are all getting rid of a member, and VH coming back rose my spirits up a million points. They can't just do a tour and say well that's it we made them happy, LETS SEE AN ALBUM! The world of rock will be dead, and only VH can save it!:thumb:

I cried tears of joy because I knew that the world was going to be a better place because Van Halen were going on tour. Lets see another tour and album boys!

A bitter/sweet day for me.. joy cos they were back rockin again :bounce: ... deep frustration and sadness that I knew I would miss out on it all. :( My saving grace was this place and the photos/reviews that brought me just that little bit closer. :thumb:

3 days from now will be the 1 yr anniversary of the kick off of the tour. And then on July 3rd for me and some other's on here will be the anniversary of the greatest concert I have ever been to.

Summer without VH=BORING!!!

Then again I was lucky because i never had to go throught 9 summers before the band reunited like some people here. Basically when I started liking the band in October 2003, rumours began...

It DOES suck, not having anything to look forward to this summer except for freshmen orientation and the start of high school. I will wear the shirt I bought at the Louisville show on the respected date (July 6th), as with the Cincinatti shirt (Sept 18, but I love that shirt, so I wear it all the time).

A year ago today was mine and fellow linker and best friend Jim_Preston's(Wes) first concert ever, and the best night of my life. Well, actually, the best night of my life was.....nevermind. So anyway. I figured I'd post my old review in rememberance of July 6, 2004.
Best day of my life... no kiddin'
A couple months before hand me and mah best friend Wes decide to go to the Van Halen. Just being casual listeners, I decide to go out and by Best of Volume 1. After all, I already knew Panama, Jump, Why Can't This be Love, and Hot For Teacher by heart. So the Date Says July 7.....a week after we bought our tickets, the date is removed. RE-Fucking-MOVED. Later in the week, it comes back up reposted for the 6th, the first day of summer school. Oh well. The day arrives, my car being in the shop, Wes rides with me and my dad. We chill at my house, and listen to When It's Love and Dreams(I didn't even know it was Van Halen, but i remembered it from the radio) when all of a sudden a huge Tornadic-like thunderstorn hits. And its alread SIX!. When we get there I but a shirt and Wes and I joke about how during the concert, what if Dave flew in on wires and said "Have no fear mah little friends, for Dave is here to save jew!"...yeah, so Silvertide comes on and kicks, for longer than I would've expected, but rocked none the last. From the time of 7:30 til Van Halen came on I pissed no less than 4 times.
It gets dark.... a guitar wails, the fatman himself screams "Heeellllloooo Baaaaabbbeeeee" and time has come to rock my socks. Jump starts and the lights hit me in the face like a man with a mullet hits his wife....HARD. Through the course of the night I stood there in perpetual aww..then some guy lifted his prostectic leg up for Sam to sign... but in the back of my mind kept wondering...are they gonna play Panama. They leave....there is sadness.... the BOOM! Don't ask me how I knew, but when the drummin started, I was already in my mind goin' panama oh oh oh oh oh..... but the funniest moment of the night, was when Hagar gives the mike to this dude who doest know whats happenin, then he gives it to an older guy...about mid 50's who says, and I quote "It's a little hot tonight", in the most normal way a person could ever say it. Like hey man how are you?, "it's a little hot"
When It's Love tooks us on home. A tear came to my eye as you are allowed three during a ballad, two on the side, and one final tear that drips at the very end. I remember seeing everyone doin the Van Hagar sign thing, me and Wes knda shrugged and did it to, then I goes"does this look a vagina to you or what?", Wes say's "I can't hear you over the sound of Van Halen being awesome!"
