Van Halen 2012 Concert Setlist – Readers Poll

There’s always a bit of a paradox when long-running bands go on tour to support new albums. While fans want to hear the songs they know and love, groups typically tour at least to some degree to promote new material — which means concert-goers can leave shows feeling a bit dissatisfied.

Van Halen, though, seems to be perhaps going too far the other way– not playing enough new tracks. Their long-awaited 2012 album, ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ is getting great reviews from fans all over the world, but the band is playing just a few of its songs during their current tour. Is it enough?

Right now the Van Halen setlist includes classics like ‘Runnin’ with the Devil,’ ‘Unchained’ and ‘You Really Got Me,’ but the only songs from the new record they’ve done live so far are ‘Tattoo,’ ‘China Town,’ ‘She’s the Woman’ and ‘The Trouble with Never.’ That’s only four songs from an album with 13 great tracks.

So here’s what we wanna know: which three songs from ‘A Different Kind of Truth’ would you most want to hear in concert?
