VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony's official web site has been updated with the following message:"Michael hopped a plane to Cabo San Lucas uannounced earlier this week to join Sammy Hagar at the Cabo Wabo for a couple of pre-tour shows! "On Thursday, April 27th, Mike, Sammy and the Cabo Wabo house drummer took to the Cabo Wabo stage to jam and do a little partying as they ripped through a cavalcade of cover tunes including 'Bad Motor Scooter' (MONTROSE), 'Crossroads' (CREAM) and 'Whole Lotta Love' (LED ZEPPELIN). "Friday, THE OTHER HALF debuted at a private show just for Cabo Wabo Cruise participants. Opening with the infamous drone of low E bass notes from 'Runnin' With the Devil', the group tore through a spirited set that began with that VH classic and included 'Top of the World', 'Best of Both Worlds', 'Right Now' and 'Poundcake'. "THE OTHER HALF consists of Mike, Sammy, Vic Johnson and David Lauser, who officially begin their summer tour on Friday May 5 at Harrah's South Shore Room in Lake Tahoe, NV.
