    Default Compared to other official vids how good is LWAN?

    I listen to a ton of music. I do not watch a ton of concert video's. Personally I hold LWAN as one of the gold standards in the realm of concert video's. The band has so much energy on stage and really the performance is top notch. I can't think of a better video that I have seen (of just a concert not a documentary/concert thingy). Am I blinded by my VH devotion or is the video really that damn good?

    *mods can move this if they want, the songs/album/video page is kind of dead so I put it here.

    This one is fun!



    ...and I usually despise live stuff. LWAN being one of the few exceptions, not because it's Van Halen, but because it's a great performance.

    LWAN is really that damn good. Captures the band at their most absolute best. That band had something to prove and it showed. This was not the "spectacle" VH any more but a no-frills, tight, and happy VH. At that point they were actually happy to be onstage with one another and not just going through the motions. TOOWTR and 5150 are two of the greatest moments ever captured on film and I put them up there with the Oakland vids.

    The energy of the band and that absolute joy they have performing is what makes it great to watch. Even with a couple of technical problems (guitar string breaking, etc), the band just flat-out rocks!!

    Led Zeppelin DVD, released in 2002 is excellent

    The Rolling Stomes Live in Texas released last year is also pretty good too.

    Yup, LWAN is a great one, they should have released the entire concert. Eddie's playing and tone were just stellar. Maybe VH at their peak? Much much better than RHRN.

    LWAN is definitely one of the best live music videos I've ever seen. My ex agreed, and he isn't a VH fan, so it can't just be bias talking!

    My other personal favourite is U2's "Live at Red Rocks: Under A Blood Red Sky", which they filmed in 1983. Amazing gig, in a hugely atmospheric setting.

    LWAN is one of the best I own, I love live dvd's so I have a large collection, the performance of 5150 on there is simply phenomenal.

    AC/DC and Maiden rarely let you down on the live dvd front too, I have some awesome Maiden and AC/DC performances in my collection.

    The back-and-forth, guitar-and-voice conversation between Eddie and Sammy as the intro to Best of Both Worlds, is nothing but two world-class rock musicians at the height of their game. It still makes my fur rise.

    Yeah, but I fast-forward through that stupid purse thing during the bridge. It's so annoying and carries on way too long.

    LWAN is epic ! I wore out the VHS version and it pretty much taught me how to play guitar too - I learned from the best !

    Queen 'Live at Wembley' from 1986 is also a brilliant show with the band playing a great set that rocks - they really did 'own' Wembley !
    Does the noise in my head bother you ?

    Agreed.

    Always thought that was beyond cheesy. Spray painting a girls shoes?

    My third favorite officially released live performance. Exit: Stage Left and Delicate Sound of Thunder are #1 and #2 for my money.

    AC/DC Live at Donnington from 1991 is amazing. Angus doing the intro to thunderstruck up on a hi-rise platform in front of 300,000
