...are headed to the Van Halen concert! We bought tix for the August 8th show in Birmingham, Alabama... she kinda 'owes me one', after I went to the Kenny G concert with her a few years back (which WAS a lot better show than I thought it would be....but still NOT VH...) This will be my 4th VH show - I saw the 1984 tour, the 5150 tour, and the 'Right Now' tour... if that means anything to you at ALL.
Now...for those who are not familiar with the 'nuances' of a Van Halen concert, yes, it is loud, brash, a bit bawdy, and a bit 'potty-mouthed' in spots, but overall, it's a VERY energetic experience, quite unlike anything else... of course, the dudes are not quite as young as they used to be, but, they're still sounding pretty good. In fact, here's a (long) video of King Edward doing his 'solo', which is generally the 'centerpiece' of a VH concert...dude can still slap a heap of notes together at once, no?
Until next time...
Hu (a.k.a. Huey Halen)
