AFTER WATCHING THIS CONCERT DVD, I REGRET NOT SEEING VAN HALEN IN THE FLESH. BUT THEN AGAIN, NO LINE FOR THE BATHROOM, DIDN'T TAKE 4 HOURS TO GET OUT OF THE PARKING LOT...THEY WERE AT THE HEIGHT OF THEIR POWERS WHEN THIS WAS FIILMED! OUTSTANDING!
As others have said, a great snapshot in time of VH in the '86 era. In the video the song "5150" is the perfect epitome of this and IMO the best song on the video. VH fans will love it regardless. But rock fans of the 80's will also be able to enjoy a very solid performance from one of the greatest hard rock bands of the 80's and possibly of all time.
I had the oppurtunity to watch Van Halen during this tour in '86 and I'm here to tell you that although this is a great recording of one of the most influential bands of the "80's captured live and performing some of the very best that Van Halen had to offer - It really doesn't do the band any justice. To actually have been there and feel your heart pounding out of your chest during Michael Anthony's Bass solo and to feel like your ears were bleeding during Eddie's guitar solo's. Just to watch in my opinion The GREATEST guitar player, live! Absolutely mind blowing! Alex Van Halen's drum solo, truly awesome. I've NEVER heard a drum solo as good as that... Sammy Hagar is an abosulate NUT on stage and a great guitar player as well. This DVD brought back many great memories. A must see for Van Halen fans!
