That is going to be a very cool event. I hope the lucky few are the real fans.

And I sincerely hope Van Halen (the band) does wonderful things. Like the one poster said, let the real music start back up.

I think those in attendance will be true fans. The bar itself was owned by Dave's Dad. So, my guess is that it will be packed with family and friends. Hopefully someone will have the balls to videotape and upload to YouTube so that I can fatten this thread up even more.

As excited as I am to see Roth and VH back, it STILL feels incomplete without Michael Anthony's involvement.

Van Halen - She's The Woman

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4pJ8ZVxZus

Members of Penny Can, consider yourself lucky. This video is unlisted on YouTube, which means only a select few can view this right now. Props to my Buddy for hooking me up with this. More to come later if we can find them. This is a new song off the forthcoming album.

Well, that sucked in every respect. I do appreciate you posting, but that was unwatchable. I think it's funny as hell, I've seen this way too often, but the person is holding up their iPhone to record what's going on. They are watching the stupid little screen where the band is right there in your FACE... and you choose to concentrate on your stupid little toy. Dumbasses

I wonder if in such a small intimate venue, what the sound was like? I can only imagine ear shattering.

Your absolutely right that the quality sucks. I posted what started hitting YouTube. I'm hopeful someone there got some decent video and the entire Set instead of songs. If I find those and it's of better quality, I will post more. You wouldn't know it from here, but a lot of people were uploading Dave....talking.

ZzzzzZZzzzzzZZZzzzzzZZZzzzzz........

Yeah, that's what people want to see.

Van Halen - Everybody Wants Some/She's A Woman/Dance The Night Away (Live at Cafe Wha? 2012)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9QBxrzx1Tc

This is somewhat better in quality, which is being generous here. The downside to this 15 minute clip is the annoying twaaaat that felt the need to record himself singing along. I've never wanted to punch a face as much as his. Alex's drums sound pretty good but damn, that's the smallest kit I've ever seen him play on. Dave needs to turn on his mic. In all the videos so far, you can't hear him at all.

Van Halen to kick off tour, album in February

Quote
(Reuters) - Veteran rockers Van Halen said on Friday that they will kick off a North American tour with original lead singer David Lee Roth in mid-February, shortly after the release of the band's first full album with Roth in nearly 30 years.

"A Different Kind of Truth" will be released in the United States on Feb 7 but the first single, "Tattoo," and its accompanying video, will debut on Jan 10. Roth's last album with the group was the popular "1984," released on Dec 31, 1983.

The band will be joined by Kool & The Gang for select dates on the 40-plus city tour, which opens at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky on Feb 18 with over four months of dates through the New Orleans Arena announced so far.

Tickets go on sale on Jan 14.

Van Halen's relationship with Roth has been a stormy one over the years. Roth left the band in a bitter breakup in 1985, only to rejoin for a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1996, then quickly depart in another bitter split.

He returned to Van Halen for a tour in 2007-2008.

The band, whose early hits include "Runnin' with the Devil" and "Dance the Night Away," was among the leading rock acts of the late 1970s, 1980s and into the 1990s, when Sammy Hagar replaced Roth as singer.

Michael Anthony was the original bassist, but alongside Hagar he has joined another band, Chickenfoot. Wolfgang Van Halen, Eddie's son, took over on bass.

I will say this about Wolfie's bass playing, it's much improved and dare I say...good. He's still no Michael Anthony in the vocal department, but the kid can lay down a solid bass groove with Alex and give Eddie something to work off of.

Good. It's obvious they have made choices which led them to unexpected areas. As long as it's good for us, I'm for it. I just hope they continue to contribute to good music and don't implode.

I am curious and can't wait to pick up the new album and see what the kid can bring. The only "negative" thing about the new album is that it's not new material. The songs from what I have heard from others talking about, are old. We are talking about songs that were written, going back as far as to the bands inception. The only thing missing were the lyrics and of course the vocals. So any ideas about the 4 of them getting into a room and writing new songs here is a stretch. Take this with a grain of salt as it hasn't been confirmed or denied yet.

From stereogum

Quote
Earlier today, Van Halen released the video for “Tattoo,” their first song with David Lee Roth since those cuts from Best Of Volume I. But as it turns out, that new song might not actually be a new song. According to Rolling Stone, former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar, the guy who replaced Roth when he parted ways with the band, claims that the forthcoming album A Different Kind Of Truth is made up of songs that the band wrote back in the early days: “Ed and Dave didn’t actually write new songs. They took old stuff from previous sessions, and then maybe Dave had to go in and add vocals because they just had scat vocals, or even no vocal part at all.”

When the band announced the new-album plans with a quick set at New York’s Café Wha?, they debuted a song called “She’s The Woman,” which actually appeared on a 1976 demo. And as some fans have noticed, “Tattoo” sounds pretty similar to “Down In Flames,” a song the band played live but never recorded. Below, listen to “Tattoo” back-to-back with a version of “Down In Flames” that they played on New Year’s Eve in 1977.

Maybe a little underwhelmed coming out of the gate?

The first single tattoo is ok. It does sound like 35 years ago. For some that's great, others may be looking for something, uh, new.

Once I saw the link, I knew it would involve a Brown M&M. We have all heard about this request of theirs. But not many people know or even understand why the request was made. If you're a good little boy and clean up your room today, I will tell you this wonderful story called....The Brown M&M.

As the story goes, the band slipped in that seemingly inconsequential detail as a test to see whether the venues they were visiting had adhered to more important considerations regarding safety and treatment of the crew.
