This setlist is ridiculous, is this the longest show Van Halen have ever played?

06-18-2013, 04:48 PM
Take out Tattoo, and that is essentially my dream setlist.

06-18-2013, 04:56 PM
I still need to see these guys.

06-18-2013, 06:09 PM
Wow. Good to see Atomic Punk and Mean Street back in there.

06-18-2013, 06:40 PM
With the re-entries of Atomic Punk & Mean Street, this set is now the same length as the 2007 tour. Good stuff!

But please, for the love of fuck, get rid of Pretty Woman & I'll Wait and permanently stick in I'm The One and Hang 'Em High.

I'm The One hasn't seen the light of day since 2008 and Hang 'Em High only got played twice on the last tour (Boston & DC).

Just hearing and seeing Eddie still able to flawlessly perform Hang 'Em High was worth admission alone.

Damn... I could go see them at the mid state fair

That's pretty good, but they really should add more new stuff. At the very least they probably want to play something other than Tattoo, She's The Woman etc. etc.

I'd personally love to hear As Is, Beats Workin, Big River, HoneyBabySweetieDoll (I will so start a mosh pit if I hear that) and even You and Your Blues.

Fuck, pull a Maiden and play the whole damn thing! Unlike AMOLAD, that album is actually good front to back.

As Is & HoneyBabySweetieDoll

I've been wanting those since the day I got the album. Easily two of the heaviest songs VH has ever written and I think they'd go over well live, especially As Is. That riff is fucking immense.

Yea cool set, besides "Jamie's Cryin'", "And The Cradle Will Rock", "Atomic Punk", and "Mean Street" it was the same show I saw last year, but ain't no problem with that considering the set is killer! If they could replace "I'll Wait" with "Hang 'Em High" and "Tattoo" with a different new track such as "As Is" or "Blood And Fire", go ahead and set that setlist in stone and just play that for every show they ever will do (ok maybe not, but if they decided to do that I wouldn't have a problem whatsoever).

Best version of this song I've ever heard.

If they could replace "I'll Wait" with "Hang 'Em High"

Smartest thing you've said all year.
