Whoa am I tired. And you know why? I just rocked my face off at the Van Halen concert!
Van Halen is one of my all-time favorite bands. Last night I was able to see them at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Check this picture out. Even made the newspaper!
Eddie and Alex Van Halen are back with David Lee Roth for a tour that many believe could be their final ever. In fact, VH has postponed 30 dates of the tour for unknown reasons. Hmmmm.
Van Halen came out on the stage playing Eruption. I love that song, but it was probably the lowest point of the show for me. Well except for when they played that stupid new song Tattoo. This is because Staples Center was having horrible audio problems. The song was echoing off the back wall. Sounded horrible But by the time Running With The Devil came on audio was locked down and the band was on fire. It’s been a dream of mine to see this band see play that song. So stoked.
Halen played tons of non-radio tracks like Hear About It Later, And The Cradle Will Rock, and Women In Love. Highlights for me.
David Lee Roth had a couple raps that were a crackup. He asked a girl if she wanted to make a sex tape. Woooo. But he also wore a pretty stupid outfit and slides around like some crazy dude. I prefer the kicks.
If you love VH go see this show. Van Halen is the one band I’ve always wished died in a fiery plane crash back in 1985 so they didn’t spend so long ruining their legacy. But after seeing this show, I’m glad they’re all still breathing.
