Went to stadium no soundcheck yet..
Don’t know where VH rehearsed today.
Wolf message on FACE BOOK they did.



Judging by the picture – it looks like it was in the stadium.

We were there about 3 pm they were still setting up sound gear and running behind I was told.
No bands had soundchecked then.
Looking at the photo it was dark when they were there.
May be after 7 pm onwards.
Pumped for tomorrow.
Updates from the gig.
Cheers.

Stone Music Festival is believed to have suffered, selling about half the 100,000 tickets they originally hoped despite discounting prices.

So how do retro bands keep delivering the goods?

”I do my job every other night, and I can do it forever,” says Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth.

But how? ”Determined and thin is the ticket to win,” Roth says. ”You can’t hit the high notes when your belt won’t fit around your belly any more. You can no longer depend on your youth to carry you through difficult moments.”

Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton thinks the perception that rock is fuelled by teen angst has never been true: ”We never set out to represent teenage angst. We set out to play fast, loud, powerful rock songs.”

That’s too bad.

I’m really excited to see a boot from this show, though. I wonder if the time off did them good? Will it be the exact same show as last year’s tour? Will Dave show off his tattoo? Will the band be energized or rusty? We’ll find out soon…

Bummed…..I looked around but could not find it. Did watch som of the press conference, Aerosmith, Billy Joel but only DLR from Van Halen. Guess I should not be surprised. Anxious to hear (and hopefully see) how things go. Hoping for the best. Only hours away.

They were living in fantasy land if they expected to sell 100,000 tickets.
