Countdown to Van Halen




The nearly original lineup of Van Halen hits Tampa tonight for a show at the St. Pete Times Forum. According to Stuck in the 80s co-host Sean Daly, the show should be sold out by the time Diamond Dave and the boys hit the stage.

I'll be there, singing along with all the old-school tunes. After all, the band is only playing hits from 1978 through 1985. Does it get any better than that? Here's the expected set list:

  • You Really Got Me
  • I'm the One
  • Runnin' With the Devil
  • Romeo Delight
  • Somebody Get Me A Doctor
  • Beautiful Girls
  • Dance the Night Away
  • Atomic Punk
  • Everybody Wants Some
  • So This Is Love?
  • Mean Street
  • (Oh) Pretty Woman
  • Alex Van Halen drum solo
  • Unchained
  • I'll Wait
  • And the Cradle Will Rock
  • Hot for Teacher
  • Little Dreamer
  • Little Guitars
  • Jamie's Cryin'
  • Ice Cream Man
  • Panama
  • Eddie Van Halen guitar solo medley
  • Ain't Talkin''Bout Love
  • Encores: 1984 (intro) and Jump
