This is a beast of a tour!

Every band needs to have this many dates! =D

This Kool & The Gang?

Well I'd go for it

Last time they toured was fantastic, it was maybe my 4th concert ever, and they rocked. I will be there in the tightest pants I can find that don't crush my balls

Las Vegas show, Yeeeeeeeaaah...... Can't Fucking wait!!!
bazinko - 08.01.2012 at 23:32  
Whoa... Kool & The Gang. That's really awesome... and makes no sense. But, regardless, I refuse to recognize this "Van Halen" without Michael Anthony. Those guys are jerks.

I am old as fuck and was into van halen when david lee roth was still in the band. i could forgive their egos because of their talent and showmanship back in 1984, but these guys are gargantuan dickheads. i hope that they fall flat on their faces with the new tour and album just so michael anthony can have a smirk to himself.....anybody that knows the band knows that michael anthony has more class and encompasses the spirit of van halen more than the current four assholes combined. although the original roth era is my favorite i do hope that sammy and michael are playing volleyball in cabo and enjoying themselves when these idots fall down. RANDY RHOADS!

Ill be there at the 28 of februari, already got tickets for the Knicks at the 29th, so thats going to be Madison Square Garden 2 nights in a row
RavenKing - 09.01.2012 at 00:57  
Come on. These guys haven't released anything in ages. There's no need to dig out old fossils.
Another example of pathetic old douchebags who know nothing else than fighting among themselves, splitting, re-uniting, re-splitting, re-re-uniting.
Fuck this kind of old has-beens who don't have enough common sense to know when time has come to retire, really.

David Lee Roth dances like Michael Jackson with MS.

Anyway, tickets for this thing are gonna be out the ass expensive but if people will still pay to see the Rolling Stones perform, Van Halen's bound to draw some people as well.

How are they going to remember all of those dates when all the members have Alzheimer's?
Fat & Sassy! - 09.01.2012 at 07:07  
What's with all this hate?
