    02.24.12: Van Halen @ United Center - Chicago, IL - PICTURES & VIDEOS!

    This thread is for pics of the show, or videos from it. Obviously these can be links to YouTube videos, etc.

    Let's again try to keep this thread clean of unnecessary discussion, so that we can find videos and pics easily. The DISCUSSION thread is really for that.

    Thank you!

    The audio is horrible but the video isn't so bad.
    Kinda nice to look at.

    I like colors.

    haha

    Also is that the soundboard?
    They should have hooked their phone up to it.

    They also uploaded "I'll wait" but not worth posting here.

    Talked to a friend who went to the concert. He told me that Dave being pissed is being blown out of proportion. After the first 6 songs it wasn't an issue and Dave seemed to be ok...he said Daves voice was about what it was at the Detroit concert ... that was a rough one for Dave too. My friend seems to think the air conditioning really fucked with his voice. He seems to also think that Dance the Night Away is the one song where Dave just can't sing anymore and consensus seems to be they band should cut it.

    Dave definitely did cut things shorter with his monologues. He said Dave wasn't being a diva, and that the band seemed to be sympathetic to Dave's mic issues.

    That's one person's view anyway

    Chicago Sun Times reported it was about 9 songs in before Dave bounced back professionally...they didn't mention vocally. I saw Auburn Hills up close and there were some clunkers I heard that night live and many more I didn't hear until I heard the bootleg. My initial impression was that he was having issues with the new stuff, finding a comfortable spot and in the case of China Town, just keeping up with the song. I'm watching the Forum rehearsal now and his voice was pretty strong that night. It's almost as though as he's singing more and more he's losing his ability to hit the notes (obviously) but instead of compensating, he's pushing harder...and it just ain't there.

    I'm heading to NYC Tuesday, so we'll see how he's holding up there! Can't f'n wait!!!

    That's how my phone vids always come out. I don't even bother.
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddie’s prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    Pretty much sounds like every other time they played RWTD on this tour so for. Not sure what you're hearing that's so bad or different.

    I haven't watched any other videos of RWTD from this tour, been more interested in some of the newer songs/deep cuts. I just didn't think Dave sounded very good there.

    In spite of all the technical issues, Dave was OK. Then again, my expectations for Dave's voice are almost zero so.....whatever

    Honestly, I zoned him out almost completly (his little bitchy tantrums were funny though, what a little diva. He made Axl Rose seem level headed LOL) It was ALL about ED.

    ED was fucking ON FIRE.

    That's good. You know when there is tech issues that sometimes go on, it's not just with a certain part of the system. Could you just imagine if was Ed's amps, or monitors and Dave's mic together. That would have been even more brutal for the roadies. Every show is not gonna be perfect i guess. At least the band was still tight and rockin. I would loved to have been a fly on the wall after last night, backstage. Ed and Dave were probably trying to figure out which one of their blowups were the biggest.
