This show was part of the Heavyweight Champs of Rock 'N Roll Tour with David Lee Roth.
Sammy Hagar Opened
Sammy opened at 7:30 and rocked until 9pm. Had a great set and really seemed to connect with the crowd. I really need to buy some of his Cabo Wabo now!! Dave came out at 9:30 and played until 11pm. The last time I sa him was for VH 1984 tour. He looked 20 years older and, sadly he did not impress me. He tried his heart out though. This round goes to, by unanymous descision to SAMMY. Come back to Vermont soon!!!!

Last night I brought my whole family to the show. My 16 year old son thought it was fantastic, and asked me to dig out every VH CD I had ( I gave him Van Halen Live "Right Here Right Now", the 2-cd set to listen to)! My wife and I loved it, and my 13 year old daughter....well she's only 13!
I thought that Sammy's set was amazing! Originally I liked the older VH (DLR stuff) more so than when Sammy took over. But after having a chance to see Sammy and his band last night, I came away with a much changed level of respect for him. I thought that he did a great job of not only playing, but of getting everybody into it. His band is a truly tight, professional unit that can really rock!!! Every musician on that stage last night was phenomenal. They definitely blew the roof off an open-air venue!
DLR on the other hand had excellent musicians, but they were way to loud, and almost obnoxious.
Sammy, you and your band were excellent! My entire family wants to say a big THANK YOU, for coming to our little part of the world and giving us a tremendous show!! If you don't ever get back to Vermont, I guess I'll just
have to ride my H-D Road King to CABO!!!
