Feels Like Old Times

With Sammy Hagar back onstage, Van Halen trudges on

Four songs into the set, lighters were in the air. Husbands and wives kissed passionately during Hagar's acoustic rendition of "When Eagles Fly." Later, a guy proposed to his gal at the side of the stage by holding up a large banner that read "Hey beautiful, will you marry me?" This happened right before the band tore into "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love."

If Van Halen has always been about romancing the ladies, these days it's also about romancing the past.

After nine years of guff and grievances, Van Hagar reunite, playing Saturday at the American Airlines Center.

"They sound great," a middle-aged fella exclaimed, as he bought a beer toward show's end. "It's like 1985, man."
