Van Halen kicked off their Different Kind Of Truth World US Tour last night at Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center in Kentucky and David Lee Roth forgot the lyrics mid set. Aussie radio station Triple M were fortunate enough to have a reviewer at the gig who reported on the lyric mishap:
Diamond Dave also forgot the lyrics at one stage, joking “onward to the chorus, onward to the chorus” as he beckoned Wolfie across stage with him. (Via Triple M).
Apparently the people of Kentucky didn’t seem to mind and were just happy to see the boys back doing what they do best (or maybe what they used to do best).
However, Triple M reporter Steve Mascord noticed the missing ‘secret ingredient’ in Van Halen’s comeback show, saying:
Van Halen were accomplished and entertaining but the secret ingredient of their music that gets into your DNA, gives you goosebumps and enriches the rest of your day, week and month life appeared only fleetingly.
