    Imagine if Dave and the guys started their reunion tour tomorrow. Which song would you rather them open with:

    Unchained- Classic opening riff that could POUND the shit out of everyone in the arena. Plus Dave could always ad a "(insert name of city) ARE YOU READDDDDDDDDY"!!!!!!

    OR

    Hot For Teacher: This has already been done, kind of, on Daves solo 99 tour. I think this would work perfectly. Imagine the lights going off in the arena, and then hearing the opening drums. As the drums kick in, lights start flashing all over the arena, in sync with the drums. Then the lights shine on the stage, with Dave standing on the drum riser. He says "HEY (insert city name) I HEARD YA MISSED ME, IM BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK" and BOOM, the band kicks in high hear with full guns blarin.

    What would you pick?

    Unchained by a long shot. I really don't see Hot For Teacher as such a great opening song. But Unchained just cries out to be the show opener.

    Unchained.

    That would be the quintessential opener, man.

    I would have to say "UNCHAINED" would be my choice of the two. Althought, I believe that the perfect opener is "ROMEO DELIGHT".

    i would say hot for teacher, with dave yelling out "i heard ya missed us, we're back!!!".
    i would say unchained would be a good song for the the encore, so people will be so pissed that they didn't play unchained, and then they come back and rip it up, "and the fans go wild....."

    I like "Hot For Teacher" more. It's one of my favorite VH songs, while "Unchained", oddly, isn't. I would have to go with "Unchained", however, because it's a more defining song for the band. It's perfect for an opener and almost every VH fan loves that song. It's perfect for their return.

    The lights are dim. All of a sudden you hear the intro to Mean Streets then BAM! Dave comes flying while the pyro is going off. The stage has the huge VH emblem lit behind the band 'ala 78-80.

    Tough one...unchained would be a great opener...but almost too good...I think that'd be the high point of the show too early. I'd say open with Hot for Teacher and save Unchained for a little later.
