"Tattoo" is the latest single and doing quite well on the Rock Charts. Check out this live performance and let us know if it provides more power live.-DocFB
Van Halen did a 15 song set at the Los Angeles Forum last night. It was the final dress rehearsal and featured thousands of their friends and family.
It was supposed to be a "secret show" but was one of the worst kept secrets as we and others leaked the info shortly before noon yesterday. Kool & The Gang opened the show as they will for the tour and they brought the good time funk. It seems like a weird combo for a tour but it works.
