    I got the Argentina '83 video in a trade. Anyone know why Ed is playing to Dave's right??? He and Mikey are opposite where they normally are. Why were they setup like this on this show???

    Yeah, that is mentioned in the VHE. It says that that show was the only time in VH's history that they ever did that. Doesn't mention why though.

    I assume that the stage was also set up in this fashion; that Eddie's amps and stuff was on the left side with him. I remember Eddie saying that Dave and Mikey wouldn't even come on his side of the stage he had his stuff so loud, so I'd assume the stage was set up so that Eddie's amps were with him on that side. If not, Mikey must have been deaf by the end of the show. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thanks Glenn! My assumption was some kind of logistical thing with that particular venue. It just threw me watching Ed play on that side....BTW, a surprisingly good quality video and show!

    As a guitarist, believe me, none of us would ever stand in front of a bass rig. LOL! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I asked this some time last year. I'm not sure if there was a definitive answer but I remember one suggestion that Mike and Eddie did it to fuck with Dave's head because he was so wasted on that tour.

    Another was something to do with the positioning of the power supply. Here's the thread

    I remember reading a story years ago about that tour and Eddie actually spoke of having to move his stuff to the other side of the stage because at soundcheck,Rude,his tech in those days was having trouble with the wireless they were using,(picking up air traffic controllers and shit),and when Ed plugged in he couldn't hear the drums so he crossed the great divide and went stage right....
