Van Halen is currently touring North America with Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. Between the bluesy vocals and ripping guitar solos, it became clear that they were the perfect band to start the night.  At one point, Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s family stood on the side of the stage and watched him play. You could see his face light up as soon as he noticed they were there.

Van Halen’s current line up is Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, David Lee Roth and Wolfgang Van Halen (Eddie’s son) on bass.  Although I was bummed that there wasn’t any jumping splits or knee slides, I was blown away by how good they were.  I had pretty low expectations from what I heard about their last tour, but the band was on point and David Lee Roth’s vocals were killer.  It was pretty amazing to see Eddie and Dave laughing it up on stage all night.
