    Default Van Halen Live DVD in February?

    I hope this hasn't been posted before. I did a search and found everything else besides this.

    I was looking around Barnesandnoble.com and found this:
    http://video.barnesandnoble.com/sear...80024924&itm=2

    It says it's released February 5, 2008. You'd think for something being released next month there'd be a little more information, wouldn't you?

    Nah, this is that virtually non-viewable footage from the US Festival that was released in Europe a few months ago. At the time, it was issued only in a version that would play on territory 2 players.

    It's made by this company, CLASSIC ROCK LEGENDS. They are well known for releasing "unauthorized" biographies of bands and poor quality bootlegs. Buyer beware.

    Here it is at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Van-Halen-Live.../dp/B000TXG3V8

    It isn't. The company got around things legally by the vagaries of international copyright law when it was released abroad. Things are somewhat different in the U.S. The VH legal department will slap an injunction on this soon enough, making it scarce and thus an instant collectible.

    Seriously: The various boots on youtube of the US Festival are of better quality, and are free.

    I made the mistake of buying the European version of this thinking it would be a better quality version of the US Festival boot. It's the worst thing I've ever seen with the picture embedded in a static stars and stripes graphic throughout. Avoid at all costs.

    VH at the US Festival is Van Halen's worst concert ever imo. I regret paying 10 bucks for the bootleg of it. Dave forgets so many lyrics because he is drunk or stoned out of his mind.

    worst concert ever?? The video quality is nothing to write home about, but the show is an absolutely legendary piece of their history.

    VH could easily thwart the "collectible" nature of rare boots by ACTUALLY RELEASING SOMETHING OFFICIALLY.

    But I regress...

    Hell, even Zeppelin figured that out...some twenty years later. So in the grand scheme of things, there is still plenty of time left.

    I agree it's a crucial point in their history, but not because it was a good show. I agree with the other poster, it's a subpar show.
