Van Halen -- Paso Robles, CA -- July 24th, 2013

Part of a 4 day trip to Disneyland and back, killer way to end it. The scheduled time was 7:30, they ended up going on a little after 8 without an opener and played until 9:50. Strange but nice since we still had a 3 hour drive home. Also if you've never heard of Paso Robles, you shouldn't be surprised. It was a much different crowd than what I'm used to seeing at shows to say the least
Dave is still Dave, even if his voice has settled down over the years. The guitar solo was as good as I've ever seen and in the next song Dave even said "excellent guitar solo tonight, Edward".
They also said that this would be the last show "for a while". Pretty clear that it's the end of the touring cycle, but whether or not we get another one remains to be seen.

Setlist is pretty much standard for the entire tour, except they dropped The Trouble With Never which I think is a good idea.
