Beer cases are stacked outside the tour bus. After all these years, Van Halen can still apparently knock back the cold ones.
Don’t we all, Tony. Of course Van Halen sells out the Scottrade Center!
It’s the first beer of the night for Valerie and Matt Stevens. They could use one after their three-hour drive from northern Illinois.
The mullets were in full effect Saturday night.
A few of my the coolest VH tees spotted Saturday. About one in every two people were wearing a Van Halen tee! I guess the rules ("Don't wear the band of the shirt you're going to see to the show. Don't be that guy.") don’t apply here.
Robert Broderick only wears a temporary mullet for the show. The Saint Louis University student just can’t study with all that hair in his eyes.
Austin Newland from St. Peters.
This group has seen Van Halen collectively somewhere around 7,456 times. They have experience, even front-row experience.
The show started off with a runway walk from David Lee Roth.
The sold-out Scottrade Center.
The light show.
David Lee "Leather" Roth
David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen and Alex Van Halen.
The "Rock Fist" was seen all evening, but seemed especially prevalent during “Running With the Devil."
"E-V-H! E-V-H!"
“Running with the Devil” sounds better with a red sequined top hat, trust me.
It’s always "Bring your son to work day" in the Van Halen family, with Eddie and son, Wolfgang.
Don't forget to play the DRUM SOLO!
Livin' the dream.
A view for the less-fortunate concert goers.
It sounds complicated.
Take a bow.
