For what it is worth, I understand that everyone does not agree. For example, see the VHND review.

I’m not trying to troll anyone, just express an opinion. Also, I saw VH in 2015. Sat up front in the middle. And I thought the same thing then that i’m saying now. Just my .02

I saw Vegas shows #2 & #3 (like the VHND reviewer).

Was Dave great? No

Was Dave entertaining? Yes

Did people have fun and enjoy the show? Yes

Was Dave as good as, better than, worse than, previous VH tours? I couldn’t tell you. Certain songs were very good/great, and others should be removed from the set. I’ve seen Dave on those previous tours, so I know what I’m going to get.

My biggest problem was with Dave’s comment, “We do not sound like Van Halen live. You have not heard this. Van Halen live is lead guitar, bass, drums, sing. Here, we bring it the way a record brings it. To do that requires 2 or 3 guitars. We have 5 people hollerin.’ It’s BIG ROCK sound.”

I (mistakenly) took that to mean that we’d be hearing the songs like we heard them on the record (tape, CD, whatever), and that’s not what was delivered.

Did I have fun? Yep. Am I sorry I went? Nope.

ron: Warner has been busy.Anyone grab those YouTube videos of the whole shows in high-quality before they were pulled?

How can Warner pull live material? How is that copy write protected?

The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!
