Omigawdomigawdomigawdgolly, I'm so excited!!!! Van-mother-fuckin'-guitar-wailin'-Halen!

Now to decide whether to see them in Ottawa or Montreal.

Heard about this last week and laughed my ass off. I bet they don't make it half-way through that tour.

I've heard a few people say this and I wonder why. They toured a few years ago with the same lineup and I think everything went okay. It's not as if they can't afford four tour buses!

Anyway, I saw them in Montreal last time and it was pretty great, though there is a fair amount of canned music; 2nd guitar parts, keys and I'm pretty sure Michael Anthony's backup vocals are canned as well.

Why on earth is Kool & the Gang opening for Van Halen???

Worst musical pairing ever. #FAIL

Van Halen is notorius for booking opening acts that the average VH fan would have no interest in. The supposition is that this ensures they will not be upstaged.

Last time I saw VH one of Bob Marley's kids opened.

I saw thhe Toronto show a frew years back and it was killer.

I was ready to hate on Eddie`s kid (Wolfgang) taking Micheal Anthony`s place but he turned out to be awesome at 17! He was hitting all the harmony notes, they were not canned at all.

This time they are coming with a new album that I head is amazing.

Hold on to your hats, Van Halen still got it.
