    Default Yahoo link Concerts ever being cheated

    http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/get...these-concerts



    VAN HALEN - Greensboro, 2007

    Gimme my money back and someone fire the soundman! David, Eddie, and the boys launched into "Jump," but the backing keyboard track was playing in the one key, while Eddie was playing in another. The whole thing is a train wreck beyond compare. Note to bands: it's okay to just stop the song, fix the problem, and start over.

    Also lists the 2008 Police tour. I may not care for the music, but the reviews were good for the tour. This person obviously has a burr in their ass.

    Well, you have to admit, that was a pretty horrible version of "Jump". Off night perhaps?

    It's the guitar that's off. I think that's well-documented.

    Just fire up two windows....this one, and another concert...play them simultaneously and you can't hear the difference in the keys.

    That said, I was there, and at the time I thought the keys were slightly off...but honestly, with all the crowd noise and such, it really didn't make any difference.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    Yep. I flew up there for that show and I thought it sounded off, but it didn't matter so much. Not like I haven't heard Jump before.

    I think it's a little silly to say the whole thing was a gyp just because the keys were off in one song.

    I really think ed was handed the wrong guitar in this instance. Isn't this played n a different key that the record now? Maybe someone got two of the same colored guitars mixed on accident. thats the only thing that makes any sense.

    You're just another Sam fan that has sour grapes because this tour blew away the 2004 tour. The figures don't lie.

    No kidding. Something that was covered in depth in October of '07 gets brought up again nearly a year later. I realize that more often than not, it's a slow news day in Van Halen land. Yet come on...
