Van Halen Switching Up Rarities on Tour
At Monday's gig in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Van Halen played a virtually identical set to Saturday's opening show in Louisville, with one change: the group switched out the rarely-performed 1979 track "Outta Love Again" and replaced it with the "1984" classic, "Girl Gone Bad."
A minor change, for sure, but interesting to see the group has some extra songs in their back pocket. Most bands rehearse a regular set and some additional material so that they can switch things up – especially if they're playing multiple nights in a city – and a change this early in a tour may just be to try a song out, adjust the flow of the show, or deal with a production issue.
