The man who many including me have called the greatest front man ever kicked off his highly-anticipated Las Vegas residency January 8th at the House of Blues.
Dave starts the night with the Kinks cover You Really Got Me, Van Halen’s first-ever single from their debut album in 1978, switching gears immediately to a solo song Big Train, setting the stage for a night paying homage to both eras of his career. Dave presents Van Halen classics like Unchained, Mean Street, Jamie’s Crying, Panama, Everybody Wants Some, Ain’t Talking ‘Bout Love and yes Jump! Solo selections include the Beach Boys song he covered California Girls, Just A Gigolo / I Ain't Got Nobody and Tobacco Road.
Fan-shot video of the legendary showman has surfaced online, giving a glimpse into the entire House of Blues performance from start to finish.
Dave is joined onstage by Al Estrada from the Van Halen tribute band Eruption handling Eddie's parts.
