    Default 1984 video recordings?

    I've read that every show during the 1984 tour was shot by a professional film crew. Is this true? This is the era I would most like to see a DVD of. The Montreal 84 bootleg is absolutely amazing. I would love to see a professional quality video of a show from that tour.

    On the WACF tour Roth told us in the crowd HBO was filming it

    Then again on the 1984 tour they had some one running around with a camera

    I did read or saw one of Daves old bodyguards saying there was no film in the camera it was just to get the crowd pumped

    I may be wrong and would love some official footage of that time period

    Totally false about every show being PRO-shot. Debunked by VH crew and several others as mentioned above.

    They did have a PRO crew filming Detroit 84 for the MTV lost weekend contest. The only fotage from the concert is ATBL. IT was released in the bootleg community a few years back.

    There is a PRO-shot "Hot for Teacher" from the Donnington, UK MOR 84. It has been in the bootleg community for several years, very wide spread now.

    Largo 84 is believed to be PRO-shot and in the EVH vaults. This is document by Pacific Titles Video vault.

    A few high level bootleg traders and filmers claimed to have seen parts of 84 PRO-shots put no proof has been offered.

    Also a rumor about a PRO-shot 84 show in Buffalo. This story came from a guy that got to see several videos when the old Buffalo AUD got relocated to the new Arena.

    +++++++++++++++

    according to the dvd the early yrs. 2 guys would run out on the stage with a camera and mic and dave would say your being recorded so make some noise. if any thing is around i would say its bootleg quality.
    they hate if your the same , and they hate you if your different- evh

    The best boot I have seen is Largo 1982 from the DiverDown tour

    I wish someone had the 1978 tour on film I have seen three songs from that

    I also had a bootleg album that was really good from Pasadena Civic Auditorium 1977 wish I still had that

    The US festival footage is pretty good its PRO shot, you can get that

    SEMI OT: Killerq, you do know you can download that Pasadena Show right now. Right click and save each track. The perfect 1st gen soundboard was released back in 2005, big upgrade over the old album boots of this show that you had.

    Weren't the Philly 1984 shows pro-shot for the Panama video ? Whole show's or just insert shots ?
