    Default Could a Potential RRHOF Fiasco Derail the Upcoming Tour?

    If Dave, Eddie and Alex go at it backstage (or onstage) again at the RRHOF in March, like they did at the MTV Awards in '96, could this possibly cancel the summer tour? If Dave pulls another "Tonight's about me" line, could this cause Eddie and Alex to have second thoughts and change their minds about touring with him? Or is the tour officially a done deal that they all must go through with because the contracts are legally binding?

    You have many valid questions and points. The answer is simply...who knows. Regardless of what happens or doesn't happen, people will tune in just to see a possible trainwreck or greatness.

    If the ink is on the paper, there's no turning back.

    Unless they want to have their asses sued off and cost themselves the opportunity to ever work with a legitimate promoter again.

    Now that the tour with Dave is official, i don't forsee any problems with Dave.
    I don't forsee a problem with Sammy or Mikey either if they decide to attend.

    I don't see anyone "showing their asses" at the RRHOF ceremonies.


    On a side note, I don't see them performing at the show either. I think they will save that for the tour or a unveiling a little closer to the start of the tour.

    I think they'll be too mesmerized by the number$ this tour figures to pull in to do anything dramatic on the night of their induction. If anything were to happen, you might as well put the final nail in the coffin of Van Halen forever.

    But then again, wouldn't that be a fitting hammer?
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    something is likely to happend, but poor ed and al wil have to suck it up and can laugh their asses off at the end of the 40th show, after they've stolen our money once again.

    My favorite quote from Ed alltime is "that'd be rippen off the fans"
    What have they've done since Van Halen 3...rip off the fans.
    Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you a yacht big enough to pull up right alongside it. DLR

    I think at this point of time DLR is probably the LEAST likely to fuck things up.

    Well as to the contracts, they do have to fulfill the tour contract unless someone thinks its worth his time to pay millions of dollars in damages to everyone who put this together. If DLR or Eddie bailed on this, the person who bailed wouldn't go to jail or something....but he would get sued and have to pays tons of money in damages. Believe me, contracts like this have damages clauses in the event someone bails, etc.

    The good news is, as in 2004, there IS a contract. With the 2004 tour the halves started to have friction, but they had signed on for a full tour and fulfilled their obligations. Barring injury or illness you can asssume this thing will finish the summer as planned. But you do want to make sure you show up during the summer, because it may turn out as it did 3 years ago when they were hoping to continue but then things were too sour by the end of the tour.

    Also keep in mind that in 1996 the entire problem was that Dave wasn't under contract to be in the band (I'm assuming not anyway). Whether he was led to believe he was going to be the singer is another issue. But this time you can be pretty sure its not going to fall apart in a month.

    Not to over analyze things too much, but maybe Dave realized how his actions at the '96 MTV VMAs got under Eddie's skin, so he's had 10+ years to cool his jets to avoid getting anyone pissed again (i.e. Eddie).

    I think Dave will be on his best behavior. I think it will be interesting to see Sammy, Mike & Eddie on the same stage together. That's where it'll get interesting. Sam & Ed don't particularly like each other and for very good reason-Ed embarrassed Sam on the 2004 tour.
