Van Halen 7-6-1984 @ Market Square Arena, Indianapolis, IN
Really, isn't this just about the most predictable reunion of the year?
David Lee Roth, the clown prince of '80s rock, is reuniting (again) with Van Halen for a tour this fall. The dates are to be announced next week, but for now here's a live set from the band (arguably) back in their prime. Well, at least at their commercial peak. Good enough.
They're supposedly planning 50 dates. I guess if The Police can tour, they can too. I don't keep up with Van Halen gossip (shock!) but it's hard to believe they can reunite with Diamond Dave but not Michael Anthony. Go figure.

If you have 4:33 at your disposal, YouTube is hosting VH's video for "Pretty Woman" once banned by Music Television. I understand this was their first video. My guess is that it was forbidden because it features two little people feeling up a drag queen, although it may have been due to its utter stupidity.
