I bet you were thinking the same thing that I did when I heard Van Halen was coming to Louisville. I thought, wow, these guys are getting up there in age. Will Diamond Dave still be able to pull off those high notes, not to mention all of those high KICKS! Will Eddie Van Halen be able to keep his fingers moving across the frets of his guitar with the same lightning fast speed as he did when I was listening to them while driving around in my camaro back in the day?
The answer is a very solid YES! Van Halen put on one heck of a show Saturday night at the KFC Yum Center. The entire place was on their feet for the duration of the show. With a set list like the one listed below, how could you just sit there?!
