3-3-08 RIP

"The Van Halen concerts in Dallas, Cincinnati, Raleigh, and Baltimore have been postponed. According to Eddie Van Halen's physician, he is undergoing a battery of comprehensive medical tests to determine a defined diagnosis and recommended medical procedures.

Boy, that sounds encouraging. Is he out with a hip? face cancer? Bertinellitis?

The last time I went to a VH concert was in 1995, so needless to say, I was looking forward to this one. The concert is rescheduled for April 24th. This is the final date of the tour. This means they will need to play 19 more dates before they get to Dallas. The chances of that happening are, how they say, less than 100%. It's frustrating to me on so many levels, but when, err...if this show gets cancelled, I lose Ticketmaster's wonderful processing fees.

On the upside, if the concert does happen, it's probably the last time these guys will ever play together, so I got that going for me.

Thanks to Tim, who helped me drown my sorrows and let me beat him at 9-ball.

Yes, I let you beat me...a few times. But it was good to pound you into the ground a lot. Home turf RULES.

You have to miss Van Halen and I am going to go to Hannah Montana on Sunday. Is there no justice in this world?
