    Yeah, it is pretty cool to watch the shows you were at.

    You have to have a deep appreciation for all the folks who film these shows, and the traders who share them. Just think how much hassle it must of been to sneak those big old video cameras into the venues back in the old days. Then they'd have to duck security while recording.

    My hat goes off to all of them. I am very thankful for all the live VH that is out there. Even with some of the poorest quality sound and footage, I can still feel the vibe and excitement of those shows.

    Also, the time and effort that goes into the sites like this one, VH boots, VH Trading, and so many more. Not to mention the artwork on VH Boots, there are so many fantastic old photos. They have provided such a valueable service to VH fans. I love live VH.

    I have a boot of the show I attended in the Golden Rings in Grand Rapids, Michigan. You can see my arm when he sings "size five dress" in Unchained. It's full of awesome. SO GLAD to have a boot of this show. That was my first time having something better than a nosebleed seat for VH, and I had the ULTIMATE seat. Best night ever. It was early in the 2004 tour, before Ed really started to unravel.

    I've got this whole show on VHS tape from someone on ebay years back. 2nd of 3 sold out shows in Detroit that tour and my first Van Halen concert. I should really have that tape converted.

    I totally agree !
    Having dvd bootlegs of VH shows I've been to , is amazing . Getting to relive the memories time and time again makes me nostalgic and happy .

    1993 , 2004 , 2007 , 2012 - Two shows with Sammy and two with Dave . All in Toronto .

    My personal collection of bootlegs I've attended also includes "Crue Fest" (which was pro-shot) , Bon Jovi , Ozzy w/Gus G. , Whitesnake , KISS , Jeff Beck , and Jeff Healey .

    Great memories and great shows !!!

    Which ones ?

    I use a site called RockinConcerts.com , although it's been a while since I've ordered from them . Lots of bands and tons of Van Halen !!! The site allows you to view clips from most of their inventory , to view the quality of your purchase before ordering . They have cd boots too .

    Ive always wished i could find an audio or video boot of my first VH show.

    It was OU812 tour November 5th 1988 Lincoln, NE.

    None have ever surfaced though.

    I have watched boots of other shows i was at like a 1993 show and a 1995 show i think.

    It is pretty cool!

    i saw them on November 8th and 9th in St. Louis, just a few days after you saw them. had front row center for the Nov. 8th show. have some cool ass pics from that show. one of these days i'll figure out how to post them here. i don't know what was cooler; skipping school and waiting in line for 26 hrs to get the tix or being in front row for the show. OK, the show was better, but partying with a bunch of VH fans for 26 hrs as a 14 yr old kid, drinking all night, etc... then the front row centers come out of the computer at 'Music Vision' our local cd store - what a fucking experience.
