    The fact that there isn't a DVD from the tour doesn't bother me a bit....really don't know if I would have gotten it or not. But purely from a PR perspective it blows my mind that they didn't. Fucking retards.

    Nowadays it's pretty much the norm for bands to have an official concert/tour release, isn't it? Why the hell wouldn't you?

    Because you can't be in two live videos.

    Im sure if they did put out a live dvd there wound't be anything live about it.
    Everything would be rerecorded and so polished that it wouldn't sound anything like what we saw.

    Im not knockin vh just saying, even the live police dvd that came out last year had over dubs.

    Myself i grew up on live without a net and loved it.
    The right here right now live dvd is just garbage sound wise.

    Yeah it's pretty awesome. Not as good as the Oakland '81 DVD in 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound but still good.

    and if they would have released it we would have heard nothing but complaints about it not being live, about Wolf not really playing on it, etc. What's the point? There's no money to made off the release of it anyways. People that saw the shows enjoyed the shows. That's all that matters.

    Van Halen is doing business the old way, not like the bands of today. THAT'S why they are becoming slightly more irrelevant with every passing day.

    Before the inevitable EVH bashing commences, I think the story is that DLR is the one that turned down the live DVD while the other 3 wanted to do it.

    Maybe they couldn't find a song that Dave remembered all the words on?

    Regardless of the quality, if not releasing the DVD was part of their "punish the fans" strategy, it's pretty damn sad.

    IIRC, Jeff from the VHStore mentioned something about it a while back.

    I still don't understand why Dave did not sign off on the live DVD. Perhaps he didn't like the way he sounded? That's my only guess.
