Back in the 80′s, the story with the US Festival show was that the guys that worked

the cameras each got a copy & one of them let it out into circulation.


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

“I have full length shows from befopre DD, they are really great shows.

Someday everyone will see them and realize how great these guys were in the early days.”

I’ve heard that the US Festival was a tape made in the production truck.

His avatar says he’s from Lowell, MA. Could this be the guy that Fletch knows with the ’84 pro-shot ?

fletch: Many years ago on this page I mentioned I had the pleasure of watching largo 84 at a Boston radio personalities house. He knows me, knows what I do, let me watch it at the party and said under no terms could I have said video. My eyes were glued on that tape all night and I had it in my hand, but was totally busted trying to take said tape. It really wasn’t good but.we joked about it. This guy is really cool and we’ve talked.a bunch of times. This was back ten yrs ago. The Uruguay I thought we already did? Along with Rio. I got Rio back in 2001. I know I have the vhs of montevideo. I’ll look through the collection when I get home.

This is like a dream for any of us…bumping into one of the rumored VH bootlegs and having it in the same room for the taking :evil:
Not sure how Fletch didn’t implode that night. Is this Boston guy still around? Sure would be nice for some of this to get to the fans before it all goes to waste!!

I understand if certain things got out VH would know someone from the inner circle (Pete, Rudy, Noel, etc) would be to blame. But if a Boston radio guy has this… then it’s gotta be out there in other hands and couldn’t easily be pinned on them if released. Ok..I’m just fantasizing now.

Just my opinion … but short of someone producing an unauthorized “official” release that makes a lot of money … I don’t think Van Halen gives two shits about a 30 year old video. It’s just not something on their radar. And at this point, I doubt the greatest CVH concert video in the world would make all that big of a splash.

I agree 100%. At this point in the bands career a DVD release wouldn’t sell much. There’d be a decent group of fans that would be ecstatic and buy it. But overall I don’t think concert DVDs sell a ton these days.

And agree they don’t care and also think the Michael Anthony issue is a real factor. They don’t want to sell anything that involves him at this point. Oh well. It’s fun to dream!!

The 3 official DVDs (Live Without A Net, Live: Right Here Right Now, Video Hits Volume I), aren’t they now pretty much OOP now except for a handful copies left in stock? I know that the Concert Vault has some Van Halen but I don’t think that the Concert Vault actually works with the artist with their “releases”.
