    So for the entire tour the big video screen was black and white for 90% of the show except for Alex's and Ed's solo spots. But in viewing these videos from New Orleans it looks like the entire show was color on the video screen. I wonder what prompted them to do this for the last show only?

    It seems Roth is now talking all the verses. It doesn't bother anyone?

    He sang his ass off in NOLA. He's entertaining the entire show as well.

    Yes it was filmed. Camera dudes along the front of stage, which by the way, is why they have had the front row set back a little off the stage on this tour.

    Those cameras were for the jumbo screen. I'm talking about bootlegs, dude.

    New Orleans had quite a bit of color shots but there was some black and white.

    I don't know about pro recording but I saw a guy go into the arena with a professional recording camera in a 2 foot x 2 foot black box. The security people just let him on in--he looked amazed that he got inside with it !!!

    In the youtube videos posted in this thread, he's talking during the verses, not singing. There are no high notes, no low notes, there are no notes, only talk. But it might be the only 2 or 3 times he did this during the whole show. A bad coincidence, so to speak, from what u guys are saying.

    Ive got the whole show in avchd bluray. There are only a few minor snafus. It's 3rd row Eddies side. There needs to be a permanent depository for this stuff. I don't want to put it out there in some degraded version though. I'll figure something out.

    We were in row 11. Amazing show.

    I'd love to get a copy when you figure it out.

    Agreed. I went into it w/ lowered expectations from reading all the tools here saying how bad he sucked. He entertained the whole night and sounded great doing so.

    Maybe that doesn't convey to youtube clips, or whatever, but he's the front in VH, and always will be, period.

    Saw a vid of Romeo Delight on RothArmy.com...



    And my comment regarding above video:

    Holy Mother Of God...

    I have been quite critical of Dave this tour vocally... not happy with his weird nasally thing, singing songs out of register, off key, taking extreme liberties with the classic melodies, etc...

    That being said, to me, this performance should be played for him OVER AND OVER...
    What a FUCKING MONSTROUS KILLER VERSION the Diamond One pulled off here... the whole band just kicked the holy fuck out of this tune... OLD SCHOOL CVH swagger and attitude...

    And the SCREAM Dave hit at 1:29... the fucking SCREAM!!! (Also one at the end coming out of the breakdown)...

    I have felt there was a physical vocal issue with Dave since first seeing the Cafe Wha? gig... he changed to dramatically from the stellar '07/'08 vocal performances... as a singer I felt horrible for him because it's not like if your guitar goes out of tune you can grab another from a tech...

    But this video gives me hope that maybe whatever was ailing him is getting taken care of... he had a strong mid range and just a kick ass attitude... LISTEN to the way he sings the last chorus... growl in the vocals and holding that strong note...

    Enjoyed that video very much!!!
