Van Halen Reunion Set List

Just do a Google on "Van Halen" and "Charlotte" and you'll get a smattering of mostly glowing reviews of the kick off night of Van Halen's reunion tour with Roth.

I kind of want to see this tour. I'm just held back by what assholes these guys are!

I've known you for years. We've played in bands together on and off going back to high school. But to be honest, I never knew you were into Van Halen so much until I started reading your blog this year! I've always liked Van Halen, but regarded them as a guilty pleasure. They are basically hyperskilled party rock. I couldn't really responsibly bring them into the same conversation compared to what I was "officially" into as a teen: Rush, Yes, ELP, old Genesis, etc. Anyway, fun to read about in retrospect.

I am in the same boat as you, Voxmoose. I started following this as more of a "let's watch the train wreck" and got a bit fascinated with it. We never did Van Halen songs because, frankly, I could not play them on guitar!

VH is great party rock, for sure. Not in the same category as the prog we so dearly love.

Just got my tickets and have GREAT seats! Can't wait. Saw them in the 80's twice. :)

I categorize their music the same as you do, its not to be taken seriously, but made for fun/partying.

Layla, you will have to tell us how the concert is if I am not able to get in...
