Review: Van Halen reunite to rock the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa
Who can resist the allure of a reunited Van Helen on a Saturday night at the Tampa Bay Times Forum? Not our Sean Daly, who was among the 11,903 fans in attendance. Ed, Wolfie, Alex and Diamond Dave took the stage Saturday for a night full of hits. Sean writes:
Throughout, the noise was satisfying, and an IMAX-ian video screen helped sell the drama. Plus the boys didn't just come to cash a fat paycheck, although they certainly will. Runnin' With the Devil and Everybody Wants Some!! were given thorough workouts, and the new stuff from album A Different Kind of Truth sounded robust in a live setting, especially She's the Woman, a reworked tune from the old days. Some deeper album cuts — Hear About It Later is my fave VH tune — were dusted off, too.
