No Van Halen party for Tacoma Dome cleaning crew

The burning question (for me, at least) out of the news that the Tacoma Dome cleaning is complete was: Will Van Halen throw the six-man crew a bash in appreciation?

When reporter Stacia Glenn interviewed the crew’s foreman earlier this month, Dave Yeisley told her that cleaners planned to present a spick-and-span roof by Saturday – with a tiny hope that Van Halen, which is performing at the Dome then, would be so impressed they’d throw the crew a celebratory party.

Yeisley’s tongue may have been firmly planted in cheek, but the crew did end up beating its own early deadline by more than a week. Surely, that’s worth celebrating, right?

Don’t count on it, Dome director Rob Henson, told me today.

“No. Van Halen – they’re not planning any parties or anything like that,” Henson said. “Matter of fact, they have no clue that the roof was being cleaned.”
