Hagar, Roth give crowd plenty of reasons to jump

By STEFAN STEVENSON
DALLAS - You can take the rock star out of the 1980s, but can you take the
'80s out of the rock star?

Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth, ex-Van Halen front men, put on one heckuva
hit parade last night at the Smirnoff Centre, even if their stage antics
were lifted straight out of 1985 - Roth's more so than Hagar's.

Both relied heavily on Van Halen classics, which was the point of the tour

Van Halen Party with One Too Many Hosts
Sammy Hagar / David Lee Roth
Alpine Valley Music Theater

David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar
Blossom Music Center | Wednesday, May 29

The David Lee Roth/Sammy Hagar concert was promoted more like a wrestling
match than a rock 'n' roll concert. Even before the start of the tour (which
kicked off at Blossom), you had Dave and Sammy on Howard Stern throwing more
mud than a monster truck rally and fueling rumors that the tour won't last,

It was as close to a Van Halen reunion as fans would get anytime soon.

Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth landed their double-bill concert at the
Tweeter Center in Tinley Park on Saturday evening and led audience members
down a memory lane of two decades worth of rocking tunes.

spotlight for a 90-minute segment of his signature music and Van Halen
favorites.
