Menu and Chaptered for every song.
Filmed from section F3 Row N Seats 1 & 2
Which is just right of dead center row 14 on the floor. Only thing missing is about the very beginning of Eddie’s guitar Solo.
I had to change the battery. Only 30 seconds or so. Typical hands in the way at times and some talking. There is going to be some shaking
because I held the camera the whole time. I was very exhusted after the show holding that damn camera. It’s not too bad for an amateur.
David did have a rant again about the blowers. Not as bad as the Sunrise show, but still a rant.

Here is what the Orlando Sentinel had to say about the show. Of course their reviews don’t mean shit to a REAL fan.

Van Halen is on the road behind a new studio album, its first with singer David Lee Roth since the MTV glory days.

The new release, “A Different Kind of Truth,” is a solid collection of songs, if not transcendent enough to compete with the classics. Of course, Van Halen’s devoted fans haven’t let that detail interfere with analysis of every derivative chord pattern and guitar riff.

On Thursday at Amway Center, the band’s current lineup of Roth and the Van Halen boys – guitar god Eddie, his bass-playing son Wolfgang and drum-pounding brother Alex – downplayed the new material. “A Different Kind of Truth” was represented by less than a handful of songs in a 1 hour, 45 minute set that emphasized old favorites.

“Runnin’ With the Devil,” offered in the opening moments, hasn’t lost much swagger since its unveiling on the band’s self-titled 1978 debut album. Although the sound-mix submerged the arrangement in a muddy pool of bass and drums, Eddie’s solo still soared on wings of intricacy and power.

Even more impressive, the modest offering of new songs dovetailed effectively with the proven commodities. “Runnin’ With the Devil” segued into “She’s the Woman,” another platform for the lead guitarist’s virtuosity. Later, the frantic “China Town” yielded more flamboyant shredding. Who cares if it was hard to decipher what Roth was singing – or was that merely shouting?

In front of the band, Roth sported a sensible hair-cut and basic black leather, a less garish outfit than the ringmaster garb he wore at the band’s 2008 show at the old Amway Arena. He seemed less physically demonstrative, though he executed his leg kicks, spins and poses with style. He also complained about being too cold because of the arena’s air-conditioning, which was odd.

Not all the new songs were winners. “Tattoo” is another showcase for Eddie’s guitar, without enough substance to make it worth the effort. On the positive side, the band shrank the arena (which had noticeable patches of empty seats in the upper bowl) with a massive stage-length video screen that made the musicians larger than life.

When Van Halen turned to its signature songs – and when Eddie took the spotlight alone for his extended solo – the music had a similar stature: “Oh, Pretty Woman,” “You Really Got Me,” “Dance the Night Away,” “Hot for Teacher,” “Panama” and “Jump” turned back the clock without missing a beat.

Speaking of nostalgia, Kool & the Gang opened the show with an energetic 50 minutes, laboring valiantly to spark a party vibe among the early birds. Alas, a booming sound mix undercut the impact of oldies such as “Fresh,” “Too Hot,” “Hollywood Swinging” and the obligatory “Celebration.”

And Van Halen? The band is still worth celebrating, a truth that isn’t much different after all these years.

It is not banned. The seeder is not connected, so it is currently listed as a dead torrent. Hopefully, he reconnects.

I gave him a quick tutorial…he apparently hasn’t seeded before…he said he tried years ago…and it didn’t work then either. I think we’ll be good to go soon!

This tour has savagely destroyed my ratio at DIME. I’ll have to find something worth while from the past and up some stuff.

OK! He just got my message, but he won’t get to it…until tomorrow. He’s leaving for the Tampa show…so I think he’s got a 90 mile drive ahead of him…so don’t count on anything today! We may have two new shows tomorrow… :D
