David Lee Roth’s appearance was enjoyable, but he forgot the words to many of the songs and his voice was giving out. On many of the songs he simply stopped singing, pantomimed his way out of it or dropped the microphone to his waist. DLR was having fun for sure, but for a concert where tickets started above $150, one should expect fun and professionalism. Eddie Van Halen was obviously having fun, but he didn’t’ stop playing the song or forget any of the chords. One of the refreshing things about seeing Van Halen in concert is that you can forget how much noise, passion and enthusiasm a four piece rock band can bring. The rhythm section was tight and sounded like they were in the studio, it was quite amazing. Eddie Van Halen’s guitar work was stunning, his enjoyment and technical proficiency made the show for me.
