    I'd have to listen to some more material... They sound like every run-of-the-mill backyard party band.
    NOT!!!

    Those South American shows are great. I was actually hoping that VH would've made it back down there, on the ADKoT tour(s).
    I'm sure there would've been quite a reception, as those fans are pretty rabid.

    They kinda sorta rock. They should smile more so people don't think they're not having a good time.

    One of my favorite VH concerts.

    They fucking killed it.

    Always thought this was the last tour with DLR where you could see that they were still getting along really well.

    I wish they would have performed this well a little over 4 months later at the US Festival.

    They did...in rehearsal.

    They were all just too fucked up to put on a great show.

    I love the US Festival performance. In my opinion you have to take into consideration the events right before that show. Dave nearly died in the amazon just before that show. He tells the story in his book how he was at death's door during that trip. Meanwhile back home the band was trying to get a hold of him not knowing what was going on. The guy survives and learns that he is about to make history with a payout of $1.5 million. Van Halen were kings of the rock 'n' roll mountain back then and I give them a pass for being TOTALLY FUCKED UP during that performance.

    They were having fun and it shows throughout that show.

    I was there and I will never forget it. A little less partying by the band before the show would have benefitted their performance greatly.

    No argument there, I just give them a pass because of what was going on in their lives at the time.

    I hear ya'. I still enjoy watching clips of The US Festival. It just wasn't one of their better shows.

    I still love the US Fest, warts n all. When the Mighty Van Helen were the clear kings of the rock mountain at that time.

    All of those South American shows that I've seen or heard are among the best of the DD tour. Great set lists too.
