    Default 2008 tour question

    Wasn't there a couple minutes of high quality footage from a either a local news station or maybe even Entertainment Tonight or something from the 2008 tour where they showed some of I'm the One? I seem to even remember specifically that they had mislabeled it "Show Your Love" which I thought was funny. I can't seem to find it anywhere now. Am I making this up? I sure seem to remember it.

    Thanks for any help!

    I think it was from the Poll Star Awards if I remember correctly. Not 100% sure though.


    Here's a pic from that show if it was in fact the one.

    " On a scale that ranges from deep dark depression to rip roaring fun ... most people idle between pissed off ...and not too pissed off " DLR 1997

    " I am the danger ... I am the one who knocks " Walter White 2011

    Yeah this definitely existed, sure they showed some YRGM as well as I'm The One and I remember thinking Dave sounds absolutely fine on this and why on earth wouldn't release live material. Dave is fine once the live recording has been appropriately recorded and mixed, that footage proved that.

    Yep it did exist. I believe it was a show from Texas maybe? Try searching "news" with van halen live 2008. I'll try looking for it later too.

    Excellent! You're exactly right, that's not the specific one I was talking about but it was a similar sort of thing. Like I said, I know that it was a little longer than that and I'm the One was part of it and the caption underneath said "Show Your Love". I kind of thought it might have been a national entertainment show but it may have been local news like that one. In any case, thanks. I'll keep looking.

    Well, I went back through Links history and found what I was talking about, but not the actual clip. All links are currently dead. Everyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about needs to read through this thread. How the hell can no one have saved the footage? It's got to be somewhere.... Crap I should have saved it.


    http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/pro-...as-t43578.html

    I mean, fuck.... this is like the only proshot footage since 1998 and it's just gone? How does that happen? It's 2 and a half minutes long.

    And just found this:

    VAN HALEN: Pro-Shot Footage From Dallas Posted Online

    Dallas, Texas TV station TXA 21 has posted professionally filmed video footage of VAN HALEN performing the classic song "You Really Got Me" on April 24, 2008 in Dallas. Watch the clip at this location.

    Eddie Van Halen recently spoke to People magazine about his health in the wake of the March 2008 announcement that VAN HALEN's ongoing world tour was put on ice after the guitarist was diagnosed with an unspecified medical condition. There are still no public details on exactly what ailed, or ails, the guitarist, but he says, quote, "I feel excellent. I'm healthier than I've ever been. It's wonderful."

    VAN HALEN resumed its reunion tour with singer David Lee Roth on April 17 in Reno, Nevada, followed by a performance in Las Vegas on April 19 at Tiger Jam XI, an annual fundraiser hosted by pro golf star Tiger Woods.

    Following Tiger Jam XI, the quartet headed to Cincinnati on April 22 to begin the jaunt in earnest, with shows running through June 2 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Tickets for all the original dates are good for the new shows, and refunds are also available at point of purchase.

    Promoters stated in March that Eddie Van Halen was undergoing "medical tests to define a course of treatment," although both his son, bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, and his ex-wife, actress Valerie Bertinelli, went public to reassure fans that the guitarist was doing "great." A recurrence of cancer or a fall off the wagon were both rumored as the cause of the guitarist's woes.

    The first VAN HALEN tour in 22 years with Roth behind the mic has been a smash success since kicking off last fall.

    I have it on a VHS somewhere, but I don't recall it being any longer than the clip posted above. Just a couple of seconds of "YRGM" and "ITO."

    No, it was longer and a good chunk of it was just them playing, no newscaster voiceover on top. It was briefly posted to youtube back then and if you go to page 5 of that thread I linked you'll see it was embedded with this:


    Folks, for ease of access, here is the clip again. It just appeared at youtube a few hours ago. Quality is not great, yet...
    Let's hope it does not go missing again!

    It's two and a half minutes and was mostly just them playing. I appreciate your help, though!

    Yeah, someone finally got me a copy and I put it on my channel. Can't believe there's so little decent footage of them going back to the late 90s. I mean, this is all there is. Crazy.
