Van Halen's 40 gigs

Executives estimate the Van Halen reunion tour, based on a guaranteed fee of $850,000 per show, would likely generate sales of at least $34 million. Which in comparison, is the same as the GNP for the Republic of Vanuatu.
For that amount I guess most anybody could cope with some harassment at the workplace. Wolfgang - Eddie van Halen's 15 year old son, will replace Michael Anthony on bass.

Would you believe it, the guy in the corner is David Lee Roth

Btw, another Dave - Mr. Dave Lesar, CEO of Halliburton, has made himself a reputable $42 million for his gigs down in Iraq. Lesar's gigs are funded in full by the poor, the elderly, the sick, the needy and the future illiterate of USA - now THAT's generosity! Lesar is not much of a singer though, but the pyro is stunning.
