Van Halen -- Chicago, IL -- October 18th, 2007
Tour: Fall 2007 Tour
Headliner: Van Halen
Support: Ky-Mani Marley
Venue: United Center
This was my second show for the Van Halen tour. It had the same set as the Indianapolis show, but Eddie's guitar solo was a bit different. I thought that I would list it for those of you who would be interested, or for those who may have attended but failed to write down the set list.
Other than Dave forgetting the lyrics a couple of times during the show, it was great. The place was packed and obviously sold out. A couple of cool things about this show and the Indy show were Dave's guitar and harmonica playing. Before playing Somebody Get Me A Doctor, Dave played a brief but cool harmonica solo. Also, before Ice Cream man, Dave told a great story about his early days with Van Halen, while playing the acoustic guitar. Kind of soft playing, while narrating his story. I don't want to ruin the story for those who will attend, so I won't provide it. Dave then started with the accoustic part to Ice Cream Man. Dave is actually a great guitar player, and tore those riffs up! Who would have thought that was possible?
Like the Indy show, we were also provided with the song 316. In Indy, Eddie said "I love you Wolfgang," right after he played it. In Chicago, he didn't. I would guess that Eddie forgot or that his son pissed him off that day!
Also, we skipped the Ky-Mani Marley part of the show, as that music just doesn't belong on a Van Halen tour.

They should have brought Gamma Ray.
and the singing dies down for just a second, right? Long enough for my dad to go "This is how they used to transport the Jews!"
