    Default 40 Minute Sound Check Audio

    This audio was mailed to me by an anonymous source. Not sure what venue this is from but clearly from the 2012 tour given the songs they are playing. I pasted in some pictures from the Los Angeles Staples Center show. Love the squeal around 13:10 and the comments that follow - classic. Enjoy

    A song list would be nice, if they run through something obscure it's worth a listen. Same old stuff, not so much.

    1)Unchained 2)RunningWithTheDevil 3)She'sTheWoman 4)RomeosDelight 5)Tattoo

    I remember this one well because as we're exiting, just before 36 minute mark on this, I hear my wife yell "Hana Hou" (which means "Again!" in Hawaiian), myself ask for them to play "As Is" and a moment later I yell "Welcome Home" to Ed who responds "Thank You" graciously.

    It's funny because someone keeps asking for "Tank" several times between songs.

    You can also hear Wolfie loud and clear, he sings "momshell" lyrics and other times in duet with daddy, examples = chorus "Tattoo, Tattoo" and "Shes the woman". I remember Ed using his pipes well this one, not so loudly in later soundchecks.

    Then they start playing LightUpTheSky but it fades as the recorder exits soundcheck.

    I don't know about the average fan but this is great great stuff here for me personally, others who attended this will likely value it too.

    I was wondering what i was hearing with the "tank" comment?? And you did not have to be at that soundcheck to appreciate this! I love this shit! They could release a soundcheck dvd with their next cd as part of the deluxe edition. Diehard fans love this stuff!

    There's also a wonderful IEM audio mix from Greensboro on Dime featuring great versions of "As Is" and "Light Up the Sky."

    Cool
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    The day is dunzo lets have some funzo- DLR AS IS

    Somedays you're the dog Somedays you're the hydrant- DLR Bullethead

    It's not who you squeeze but who returns to squeeze you, no doubt, love em all I says let cupid sort em out!

    Here's the skinny on that.

    http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-d....php?id=409370

    Van Halen
    Greensboro, NC
    Greensboro Coliseum
    April 21, 2012

    Taper: Rerun
    Equipment: receivers>cables>recorder

    DUAL IEM SOUNDCHECK

    Left channel: Alex
    Right channel: Eddie

    Setlist:
    01. drum check
    02. Unchained
    03. Running With the Devil
    04. She's the Woman
    05. requests denied
    06. Tattoo
    07. As Is
    08. Light Up the Sky


    notes: I was not going to release this, but inlight of the recent appearence of the video, what the heck?
    I stumbled across this "mini audience" soundcheck as I was getting my gear setup...did not plan on recording this but I'm glad I
    did...no David Lee Roth, but a pretty cool jam session non the less. Some static here and there but nothing you can't get past. I had
    to cut and paste from one channel to the other in a few spots to get rid of some major static. There is a ton of cow bell on Alex's
    feed, horrible really. If you like one channel better than the other, just load the tracks in your media tool (Adobe, Sound Forge, etc.)
    and copy the right or left into a new track on its own...I didn't mix them because I thought everyone might like independent feeds.

    You can do what ever you want with this.
    Enjoy!

    As Is sounds excellent - there is a click track going all the way through it which sounds like a cowbell which gets a bit annoying. But great to hear this live.

    EVH says at the start if Dave's decides to sing we'll be prepared!

    Click track is on all the songs - however if you can fade it out by using the right channel.
