    Default Van Halen - Live at ANZ Stadium (Sydney, Australia) April 20, 2013 (FLAC/AUD)

    In the interest of Van Halen unity, I present to you a bootleg kindly passed onto me from the recent Sydney Show.

    Recorded, mastered and processed by Starclassic

    Source/Lineage: Core Sounds Cardioids (pointed towards stage to minimise crowd noise) -> Sony PCM-M10 (mic-in, 48kHz 24 bit, downsampled to 44.1/16 for your CD burning pleasure) -> Soundforge 10.0b w/Izotope Ozone 5 Mastering Plugin and Izotope RX2 Advanced -> FLAC Level 8

    Originally sourced from VOA House of Bootlegs.

    Location: Seated area, 10 rows up from dancefloor, slightly stage right.

    Notes from taper:


    Do I need to say anything about these guys? They need no introduction, they still have it and they still entertain crowds all over the world. They even make guys jizz their pants with their musicianship! So I'll just get straight to the technical bits.

    The sound guy did what he could with the fact that this was an open-air venue - a football stadium using only one half. The weather was unbearably cold and I froze my arse off because I neglected to consider wearing my fleece jacket over my fleece top which would've had the lapels I needed to clip my mics on as usual!

    The bass was a bit on the heavy side but I think I managed to tame it enough without losing the raw energy of the gig. Dave's vocals were poorly mixed with him often disappearing among the powerful axe of Eddie. Even the snare drum lacked a bit of cutting power. If anything, I caught the last 30 minutes of Aerosmith before Van Halen's set and they actually had a better mix! Still, I think I managed to polish this recording up as best as I could, including filtering out most of the fireworks explosions from another nearby venue as well as some overexuberant clappers in the audience.


    I only have one bit of advice for this C-grade recording (I give it a B) ... it's mastered to be played LOUD. I can imagine Van Halen at a volume of less than 11 and neither should you. Just saying.

    As always please, don't sell this bootleg, otherwise you're just plain old scum. That and Diamond Dave will erupt all over your face.

    This one really needs to be played loud as well. Find some BIG speakers and a cold beer and enjoy.

    Thanks so much! Can't wait to this thing justice, as you advised, through the big speakers! Swap the martini for frosty long-neck & I surmise it'll look a bit like this:
