[SPOILER ALERT] Van Halen 2012 tour discussion

404 posts in this topic

This show just popped up without warning.

I checked emails this morning and there was a heads up message from a friend in London.

Two emails below that was the American Express presale info and link.

It was like "whoah...uh...ok...well...I'm in!". :blink::lol:

Haha I haven't gotten any notifications whatsoever, and I'm a member of the JLC Presale club. They always e-mail me show announcements. Maybe they're surprised too?! Oh well. I'm going.

now they're coming to my hometown which I never thought would happen.

Yeah it's cool to see this happening.

This will be their third London show...'79,'82 and now this one! B)

I actually used to have a bootleg of the '82 show,and it was really good,but my copy got ruined (cassette).

My friend who taped it,I hadn't seen him in years but we were at a mutual friend's funeral.

I asked him if he still had all his master tapes of concerts.

He chucked them after he got married.

He sometimes recorded when we went to shows.VH..Rush (Hemispheres tour...that boot was WICKED!!),several others.

My copy of the Hemispheres show I had on 8 track (don't ask :lol: ) and the deck ate it some time ago when I attempted a transfer. :shrugs:

Ahhhh, I would kill to hear a boot of that Hemispheres tour show. Their set for that show was unbelievable. But yeah, the only reason I say I never thought VH would come here is because I was born in 1986 haha.

These appear to be the new dates so far:

7/13 - East Rutherford, NJ

7/15 - Baltimore, MD

7/21 - London, ON

Wish they'd update the website, since there doesn't seem to be one place to catch all these show announcements... <_<

Probably a gradual thing like they've been doing...last few shows have been pretty static though, Romeo Delight, Hear About It Later, Trouble With Never, and Outta Love Again in the rotating slots.

I seriously don't even care - they're honestly become my favorite live band behind Maiden and Guns over the course of this tour B)

Looks like London is the only Canadian stop...so far anyway.

No Toronto or Hamilton while they are in the hood.

Fuck...this is gonna be cool! :)

Yea...I really hope they throw back in Blood And Fire, or at least another ADKOT song!

BTW, I'm definitely taping Rochester the same way I taped Pittsburgh...I've got every VH show I've been to so far and I know there's no good odds of Rochester getting taped.

I have the presale password for the JLC website if interested? It's a presale that starts on the 19th at 10AM and ends at 10PM.

I was just going to PM it to Paul Stanley.

It's a cyber-club presale.

Does Paul Stanley have to register for the cyber-cub I wonder??

Or will he be good with just the password?

I think you're allowed to use the password regardless of if you're a member or not, but I haven't done it in a while.

I sent PS the info anyway...better to sign up,in case it's necessary.

I seem to recall having to log in to my cyber-club account...but I don't remember.

I got my VH through the American Express presale so I didn't have to deal with the cyber-club.

I also let him know he has to get tix through the JLC website...Ticketmaster doesn't handle their shows.

Oh and...sent him the password,I guess that helps. :tongue2:

I love how you guys were having a conversation about me and how I can get my tickets. :lol:

I appreciate the info though! :thumbsup:

This will be really cool. I've heard good things about the JLC but never been there.

You still thinking of coming up for the London Slash show?...or did this just trump it?
