    Default Opening Night T.V. airings?

    Anyone hear anything about VH1, VH1 Classic or MTV showing part of opening night?
    I though I saw a thread awhile back where someone mentined that it was going to be on.
    I checked ahead on my dvr guide and it shows nothing for VH1 or VH1 Classic, but from 8-9 on MTV it only states that an "MTV Special" is scheduled.
    No mention of what the special is and I somehow doubt that MTV would air it since they are basically a reality show channel now but with this band and that channel who the hell knows?

    Maybe VH-1 would have some cameras there to show footage of the concert at a later time after the shots have been edited, mixed etc...

    MTV should bring back that show live at the 10 spot where concerts were show during an hour program.

    Who has time to air concerts when they have to show marathons of sweet 16 parties?

    Wasn't it KI$$ who a few years ago had an opening night special that had the first half hour set up as a mini "rockumentary" and then like the first 4 or 5 songs live?

    I'll bet there's a VH1 camera crew to get some footage. I could see some parody material for "The Best Week Ever". It'd be nice if there was some acutal journalist types there to cover it as well.

    Bon Jovi did this back in 2000 or so on VH1.

    I was thinking that myself. One of those chuckleheads on best week ever will probably have something to say about the VH tour opener.

    It would be some t.v. publicity for the band, which would be good.

    Oh come on guys, the most likely place to see it would be a webcast on van-halen.com Geesh.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    VH1 used to regularly do the first 15 minutes of different tours... but that was before "celebreality"...

    "Save the Music"... they could start by showing some.

    What are they going to do if they have a "Peter Brady" moment, and Wolf's voice starts to change and crack during "So This is Love"?
