    Default Reunion will only work with Dave and Sam

    I think the the only way we will ever see the name Van Halen on a concert ticket is if Dave and Sam both are on the bill. There are not enough fans left of either one alone to make it worthwhile financially as we saw in 2004. Dave has ruined any reputation he had left lately with his strumming with the devil and radio show.
    Lets hope all egos can be put aside and let us go out with good memories of the greatest R&R band ever. My last time seeing them was in Hamilton on 2004 and was embaressed for eddie.
    I think Sam may have opened the door a little by saying some decent things about Dave lets just hope David Me Roth can get in the same mindframe.
    Just my 2 cents.

    I TOTALLY SECOND that. I So believe that they both should make a huge production out of it with the brothers.. Story telling if you will years by the years..even the times we have no idea what the hell is going on(like 1998-2003) With the whole drama since the beginning, a huge story could follow and they could go through the years and it would be the greatest. Like a "show".....something rock n roll hasn't seen since TOMMY. But for real. Call it. Didn't AL always say,"If you are going to do something great, why not do it to the top of the world..." Balls out. Let's be interesting and take it all to the top. For fuck's sake.

    Totally agree with the points made here. While I happen to think that a reunion with Dave or a "continuation" with Sam would both be pretty big (particularly a Dave reunion), a tour and/or new music with both would certainly be preferred by me and I'm willing to bet most other fans as well.

    All three are incorrect. Only a Dave fronted reunion would be successful and if a reunion with both Sammy and Dave was successful, it would only be for the Dave era tunes.

    I think that would never happen for one reason. Dave would not want anything to do with that. I would be all for it though. It beats nothing.

    Keep walking around with blinders on, Van Halen has 2 important eras in its history and the band would not be as legendary without both of them.

    I love all VH. I like Sammy better. I want to see Roth live. I already saw Sammy, and it was great. I think one last tour with Roth, then go on to whatever (Cherone?), but I don't care. Stop goofing around with the past, though, and make some new albums with whoever.

    As to the title of the thread, I think Sam and Dave would be terrible. It would be fake beyond fake (Dave hates Sam, Sam is OK with Dave recently, the bros hate both...but I guess they all like money!).

    Count me out.

    I just can't see Dave agreeing to a reunion tour with Sam on the same bill.
    Bobby Cohn: Who's going to be at Waynestock?
    Wayne Campbell: Um, uh...Aerosmith & Pearl Jam!
    Garth Algar: Ha ha ha ha ho!
    Bobby: Who else?
    Garth: Uh, me...and...and Wayne...
    Wayne: ...and uh...VAN HALEN!!!
    Garth: Wow. Van Halen. Who else?
    Bobby: Yeah, who else?
    Wayne: Uh, an old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?

    The tour of 2004 to less than packed houses proves my point. The real fans, the ones who've been there since the late 70's / early 80's want a real reunion.

    I was just gonna argue the less than HALF that you put in there but you changed it.


    oh, and I'm a "real" fan and would go for the 2 singer show.
