    Default Looking for Showtime "VH Unleashed"

    Hi. I'm sure some of you remember the Showtime special, Van Halen Unleashed. It was all backstage stuff from 1986 5150 tour LWAN timeframe. First I want to complain it was not included in the new LWAN dvd. Seemed like a no brainer to me. Perfect extra kinda thing for the dvd. Maybe they'll do a tenth anniversary LWAN dvd in '06 and include it. Doubt it though. Anyway, anyone know where I might find a copy of the Unleashed special? Thanks.

    Sorry Bro, I had it on tape and left it at my cousins house and never saw it again! But I got my stuff from MTV not showtime.

    I think that was an MTV special. Your right, that would have been an awesome extra on the DVD.

    I actually have this buried on a tape with 8 hours worth of interviews I got off of Ebay awhile back...
    Kinda cool seeing them backstage playing Addicted to Love.
    It's watchable, but very generated. I think cut off at the very end and beginning if I remember correctly

    I also have the original on VHS along with several hours of other clips, but I recently got a DVD copy of it. The one I have is from MTV, but I do remember a special on Showtime: was it a concert from Montreal? I'm sure I have that buried somewhere among my VHS tapes. If you'd like a copy of "Unleashed", e-mail me and we'll work something out.

    I have it on my comp. I dloaded it on WinMx. Alot of full VH concerts on there and live vids. Check it out. I got a 53 min version of the Toronto PPV, the Sydney VH3 show, US Fest, Japan 89, Les Paul Tribute, and I found the FULL OAKLAND 81 show on there. Take a look there.

    Just to clarify. "Unleashed" was an MTV special shown during 86/87 on MTV. There are 2 different versions actually. One is about an hour long and contains 4 songs from LWAN and the other is about a half hour and doesn't include the LWAN songs.

    Showtime did run a VH special in 87, but it was just an edited version (about an hour) of LWAN.
    Van Halen Live: 15 shows.
    Have I seen my last one?

    If I remember correctly, the first airing was during the tour. The second (longer) airing was after the tour, where they edited in tracks from LWAN. I must have watched that VHS copy dozens of times over and over until it broke.

    I thought that was only a rumor.

    Mean Street is from another show, not Oakland. The other three are the only songs recorded from Oakland available to the public. Unless you're among the chosen, of course.
