    Default Best of Tour

    Has anybody heard a better sounding boot than Charlotte 9/27?
    I'd love to hear it if it exists.

    Great DVD that you could rip the audio would be from San Diego.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    The biggest problem seems to be getting a boot where both the band brings their "A" game and the audio quality of the recording is good. I have heard some stuff after the extended break following the last FL show where Ed is literally playing like he is on fire, but as soon as you get drums and/or bass in the mix it sounds like it was recorded with a mic from a late 70's handheld tape recorder (ie: distorted beyond belief).

    The last few shows with Eddie playing note for note perfect and Roth singing less and talking more sounds as close to classic VH as you can get. I like the youtube videos from MSG in 2008. You can clearly see and hear Roth giving it 100% cause the cameras are rolling.

    I agree with you guys.
    The last couple months of the tour were some of the best playing I've heard from Ed in a long time.
    I really wish a soundboard recording would leak out.
    Still hoping for a live DVD/CD release!!!

    What sucks about those later shows though is no Little Guitars.

    This tour was probably the most effort that Dave put into the actual vocals since the WACF tour. I have crushed Dave's live performances in the past, but he was awesome when I saw them and in most boots I have seen/heard.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Forgive me for being so lazy, but could someone point me in the direction of some of the dvds from this tour?
