Might catch some flak for not putting this in the Media Center but i wanted to shout it from the peaks. They are working on putting together a 07' tour with DLR, and i could NOT be more excited, i'll sell my damn car to make to a show if i have to. FINALLY they seem to have put all the colossal egos aside and do what the fans have been asking for since they broke up.

Its gonna be awesome, i have never seen them in any incarnation but had no desire to see Sammy sing the songs that only Dave should belt. I never liked the Hagar years. But man am i HAPPY...YIPPEEEE!!!

I was a Van Halen fan back in the day because it seemed like the thing to do.

Now I have a dozen Van Halen CDs (or more) which sit on a shelf. I don't care if I ever hear them again. I certainly don't want to see them 20 years past their prime.

From what I've been hearing, it will be Ed's son on bass.

I thought they were going to tour with Eddie's 15 year old son Wolfgang?

I saw them at the Monsters of Rock show in the mid 80's at Arrowhead. One of the best shows ever. They rocked that night. 20 years later? maybe Vegas?

Are you certain of this? That's awesome, anyone who doesn't think that would be a good show, well, just go listen to how good they sounded on Meanwise Magic, written and released on the Greatest of discs - I for one would be happy to see them.

They were my 3rd concert ever, back in 82 - Shreveport. David was drunk as usual, and even Eddie sounded only halfway like himself; it was still a great show!

It will be one of the 3 biggest concert box office takes of the summer. I would imagine they will take this very seriously and get in shape and not show up drunk as in the past. Like KISS they are looking for 1 more shot at the old glory, i have every reason to expect peel the paint from the walls performances. I first got this info from the Bob & Tom show this morning, then did a little google research. LA's #1 hard rock station KNAC was my secondary source because i knew that using Bob & Tom only would earn much scorn.

I saw DLR on (of all things) the Fox News Channel, hawking another idea for a talk show that he wants to do. He looked...creepy. Kinda like a smiling skeleton...weird. He did mention that he'd love to get back together and tour with VH. This was like 6 months ago I think.

Having said all that...I'll go to this show hell or high water...I never got a chance to see him back in the day. Always wished I had. I'd go to this for sure.

Having seen DLR in concert during the DLR/Hagar tour... being a DLR fan of VH days I was stoked to see DLR. His half of the concert sucked BIG TIME. Hagar rocked my socks off.

I still prefer the DLR Van Halen songs, but given a choice between seeing Hagar vs. Roth in concert, I'll take Hagar every day and twice on Sundays.

I did get to see the Hagar/Van Halen reunion a couple of years ago it was awesome!

Wait, has anyone told Eddie that DLR is planning to re-join the band?

I saw Van Hagar's reunion concert two or three years ago, and Eddie was awful on guitar. It was painful to listen to him play, which sucked, because from '88-'95, they were my favorite band.

I saw Sammy in concert this past July, and it was cool because he played 12 of his solo songs with the Waboritas as the opening set, then played 13 Van Hagar songs with Michael Anthony on bass as the main set.

I agree with whoever said that Van Hagar should never play DLR songs in concert. I heard an interview with Sammy about a month ago, and he said that he will reunite with Montrose for a 2007 tour.

Since Eddie's kid is supposedly playing bass on this reunion tour, I guess Michael Anthony will stay with Sammy?

We (ad agency) do a lot of work for Branson theaters and I was asking one of the theater managers this a few months ago. She said that many of the 70s and 80s groups have been inquiring about opening a theater. They still want to play music, but hate touring, so this is the next option. She said over the next 5-10 years that this will be happening.

Wasn't a big fan of the Me Wise Magic song. Of course the thing I liked about the original VH stuff was that it still had sort of a raw sound to it.

I havent heard of those, but i sure am glad they are finally getting serious. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that Eddie almost died and VH of late has been a non-entity with a couple of fizzled albums and Dave was reduced to a lounge act & then his big radio gig tanked. They must finally realize that they need each other to re-constitute the legend.

Saw the Scopions in 1986 and then in 1998. Not a lot of difference. The singers voice was still there and they still rocked.

Saw Reo Speedwagon in 1985 and then 1999. Not the same at all. Crap.

Saw Motley Crue in 1991 and then in 2005. now those dudes still rocked the house. Fantastic concert.

Saw Green Day circa 1991 and then in 2005. 2005 version was much better.

Saw Ozzy Osbourne in 1983 and then at Ozzfest 2004. Voice was close but he's just got to old.

Saw Judas Prient in 1983 and then in 2002. They still rocked.

Saw AC/DC in 1986 and then in 2003 at Kemper. They still rocked but were more about playing the songs than showmanship. Not a bad thing I guess.

Saw Metallica at the monsters of Rock tour circa 1985 and then in 2003. Those dudes could still rock.

Saw Motley Crue in 1991 and then in 2005. now those dudes still rocked the house. Fantastic concert.

Saw Green Day circa 1991 and then in 2005. 2005 version was much better.

Saw Ozzy Osbourne in 1983 and then at Ozzfest 2004. Voice was close but he's just got to old.

Saw Judas Prient in 1983 and then in 2002. They still rocked.

Saw AC/DC in 1986 and then in 2003 at Kemper. They still rocked but were more about playing the songs than showmanship. Not a bad thing I guess.

A weird note about REO, when i was living there (Champaign/Urbana) as a young man i used to go "cop" from Gary Richraths ex-wife & play guitar with his kid once in awhile. His kid was like 12 or 13 at the time and could really rock.

So you may be getting DLR, but you won't have the 'Original' Van Halen... Wolfgang will be playing bass on this tour.

Last I heard, Anthony played this last tour on a salary, and was only welcome to play on that tour if he signed off on having his songwriting credits removed from most VH songs. So my guess is he's out.

I remember hearing a story about them auditioning base players without telling him once. Anthony stayed with those pricks way too long. I'm sure he's much happier with Sammy.

And when I saw the current picture of Eddie, two words popped into my head - RUTH BUZZI. :spock:

2006 - NIN - Great concert

2006 - Red Hot Chili Peppers - WOW...Much better than I thought it would be.

2006 - Rob Zombie - All I can tell you is depending on the venue (which was small) was the best concert I've seen in ever. Not the blood and bulls&it I heard it could be here on the planet. So take it from me...DON'T MISS IT...That's if you like his music.

Santana as I recall was at the '79 one with Foreigner and Journey.

The storm show was '82,I have pics of it and without going to dig them out I'm thinking it was John Cougar,Heart and REO for the big names with REO headlining during that hellacious thunderstorm.

Like I told Dart,my stoner days started in 78,if it was a multi-act show the odds of me getting every act right is little to none.

Heart co-headlined with Ted Nugent.
Support acts were: Sammy Hagar,The Cars and Missouri

We're getting closer, except the show I saw was definitely at Royals Stadium. Jay Ferguson sounds right, there was an act that was supposed to open or play early on, but they were scratched at the last moment. Pat Travers opened instead, followed by LRB, Santana and REO.

And talk about conflicting,I found a site for Shawnee Mission school where someone remembers Led Zeppelin playing with REO in '79 at Arrowhead and another where a guy remembers the '77 Summerjam line-up being at Arrowhead in '79.

All I know is I didn't miss a Summerjam or Summer Rock from 1977 to 1982(except the Willie Nelson picnic)and I could've sworn the last Summerjam at Royals was '78 Van Halen,Eddie Money,Steve Miller and Kansas due to too much destruction and clean-up to get ready for the next Royals baseball game.From then on all shows were at Arrowhead.

Still could swear that John Cougar was at one of those...

You just filled in a blank for me after looking at my stubs,Cougar was at one of the two '82 Summerjams,I've got a pic of him I took and the caption I put was Hurts So Good which was right about the time American Fool had come out.

So the headliner was either REO or the Loverboy/Foreigner show.

I don't remember the Loverboy show so it has to be the REO show.

John Cougar was with REO-he filled in for Ted Nugent who broke his hand or something and cancled.

Might catch some flak for not putting this in the Media Center but i wanted to shout it from the peaks. They are working on putting together a 07' tour with DLR, and i could NOT be more excited, i'll sell my damn car to make to a show if i have to. FINALLY they seem to have put all the colossal egos aside and do what the fans have been asking for since they broke up.

Its gonna be awesome, i have never seen them in any incarnation but had no desire to see Sammy sing the songs that only Dave should belt. I never liked the Hagar years. But man am i HAPPY...YIPPEEEE!!!

The DLR reunion should have happened years ago-it is just too late now to be for anything but money.

That actually got a good chuckle outta me Mr.Kool-Aid, nice. But you couldnt be more wrong. Take a look at any of the major rock acts that have re-united KISS, Eagles, the list goes on. Its gonna be huge. Only the lesser acts that try it meet with apathy.

Go ahead & stay home, i'll be there.

We're getting closer, except the show I saw was definitely at Royals Stadium. Jay Ferguson sounds right, there was an act that was supposed to open or play early on, but they were scratched at the last moment. Pat Travers opened instead, followed by LRB, Santana and REO.

not that it's important but i remember summerjamm'78 at royals stadium.
seems to me performing were van halen, eddie money, steve miller band and kansas. quite the show.

I was at that one. They were great, but DLR didn't know he was in Missouri. He said "Hello Kansas!".

I once saw them in concert back in the day. They were playing with some group called Journey and Montrose. I got all their careers started. Props to me. :D

I was at that one too, at Memorial Hall in KCK. It was post Hagar Montrose, with no singer.

REO was at a couple of Summerjams,I think you're getting a few shows crossed.Little River Band was at the '77 show with REO, Climax Blues Band,Head East,Black Oak and Nugent.

Santana as I recall was at the '79 one with Foreigner and Journey.

The storm show was '82,I have pics of it and without going to dig them out I'm thinking it was John Cougar,Heart and REO for the big names with REO headlining during that hellacious thunderstorm.

I know for a fact the 77 line-up is correct because I wasn't getting stoned yet,from '78 and on all bets are off.


Man, I will never forget 77 and my first taste of freedom. There was just nothing like cruising the open sidewalk of the apartment complex in my brand new big wheel. Sure I was 4, but feelings like that a person never forgets.

Dont have the time to read the whole thread but since Wolfgang is replacing Michael Anthony on the bass for this tour, it's not really an "original" VanHalen reunion.

VH always kind of sucked live with DLR-yes he jumped around in spandex and did the sword thing-but he always sounded like total shit. Vh with Sammy had a much cleaner sound and vocals were always top notch. I liked Ed's early sound much better but he was so screwed up when I saw him, he played like crap.

If they put out another CD that would be different-but I am tired of all the Aerosmith's of the world.

I meant bands that tour nonstop for years without having a new CD out. Aerosmith just toured on yet another Greatest hits offering. They have been through here like 5 times in the last 3 years with nothing new.

VH is way over the hill and should have called it a career after 5150 IMO.

I am still pissed about wasting my money on VH111-with Gary Cheron.

Well i've never seen the old VH, but i did see DLR on the Skyscraper tour and he sounded AWESOME. On a side note, you seem to appreciate skilled musicianship, Vai & Sheehan were just incredible.

To me music is like chemistry, some concoctions work better than others & i think DLR's vocals & Ed's guitar were meant to be together. I like Sammy but not with VH. The music in his era with VH was too slick & commercial for my tastes.

I like the grittier & more raw style in general.
