Will Van Halen with DLR release a concert dvd of their reunion tour?

Is there any plans to release a Van Halen concert dvd with Diamond Dave from their reunion tour?

They toured in 2007 but they never released a concert dvd.

I can't imagine they would pass up the $ that it would bring in.

They've passed up the $$$ for a live concert album/video with Diamond Dave many, many times.

Yeah, but that was back when they were something other than a nostalgia act.

I never got to see them live and they don't perform on the late night talk shows like Leno or Conan so it is kind of rare to see them perform live unless you had tickets to the concerts.

Did Dave do those leg splits on this past tour?

Still strange after all these years there maybe one VH concert on DVD Live Without A Net but that came out in the 80's when other artists like U2 probably release 1 official concert DVD for every tour.

I would really like one from the first go-round a few years back. I was attacked by a horrible stomach virus right before and spent half of the show in the shitter.

Did Dave's voice and/or lyric memory improve any throughout the tour? When we caught them he was average to bad, the band sounded great though.

They allowed folks to video tape them on this last tour, so there are some decent fan made DVDs out there. I shot two complete shows.

Friends and Family show before the tour...

Plenty of shows are on the usual sites, or were you speaking specifically of mine?

I was speaking of specifically yours. I mean, why bother telling people you have it if you're not going to share it like everyone else on the internets?

^the most painful 7 minutes of my life. Glad they ended up canceling their show here and I got my money back.

Every clip I've seen of Dave on that tour is painful and embarrassing. I'm glad I didn't waste my money to be part of that debacle. The guy doesn't have anywhere near the voice or stage presence he used to have. I mean, he moves around the stage like he has full body arthritis and short-term memory loss.

Wellllll, I did try and contact VanDiego Dave to do a 2 cam of San Diego since he released a nice version from a bit closer than mine, and I think it's kinda redundant to release a 2nd version of the same show, from a further back angle. A 2 cam? sure, but just a another angle single cam? Meh. I hate that vhtrading.com (randy) puts his logo in the corner of everything too, so I wanted to edit it.

The friends and family show, I felt a bit guilter about since that one was a rehearsal show, more rough, no permission (unlike the regular tour), and again someone put together a multicam although it kinda sucks. (they just used youtube footage to put the whole show together including my shots with my watermark. Not great...

Speaking of Roth and "WTF" moments, take a look at this vignette of him playing a hitman in Japan.

It was like Al Jolson fronting a hard rock band.
