I am under the impression they still won’t let people video tape the souncheck with their phones or point and shoots since there isn’t video of it. Even the audio we have from opening night sounded muffled at first like the recording device was stuffed in a pocket. I have to wonder why they wouldn’t let you tape it. At least with the 3 Van Halen’s your getting a pretty rock solid performance. It makes me wonder that maybe it’s Dave that insisted to the others to let people record the shows for youtube and since Dave isn’t involved in the sound check the Van Halen’s call the shots there.

This is purely anecdotal … but it’s pretty well established that Al likes to get copies of the fan produced DVDs (preferring DVD9 versions!). That doesn’t necessarily mean that he has said anything about allowing fans to record the shows – but it certainly suggests that he might have done that.

I went to the show in Irvine my buddy and I went early to score tickets from the box office.Nothing to good was released so we ended up getting some good ones of stubhub for face about two hours before the show Row D on wolfies sides they have a small pit infront with seats at Irvine but these seats were still very close as they had nothing below P or S at the box office we checked for over two hours every 15 minutes nothing dropped. When we got there VIP people were showing up and getting all there stuff.The lady in charge said specifically no cameras or cellphones out during soundcheck.

Also no frisking or checking of any kind at Irvine they just let people walk in after they scanned there tickets.

Same thing at San Bernadino, they barely looked at me, just scanned the ticket. I was worried about getting my camcorder in, no problem at all.

First time to do VIP thing. Can you get the Chachkies at the box office and take back to the car so as not to get ruined?

hmmmm interesting… I got an email from VIP for my Hartford front row package last month asking what size hoodie sweatshirt I wanted as it is one of the gifts we get for the front row package. Didn’t see anything about a hoodie in here. Interesting.

The hoodie is mentioned on page 1 and page 2 of this thread. It’s only for the front row VIP package people.

If you’re parked close to the VIP check-in table, and you are near the front of the check-in line, there is a good chance of taking stuff to the car. As long as you are back before they finish checking in everyone. HOWEVER, this will vary at each venue. Best to take a couple of rubber bands, or a small poster tube to put the litho in, just in case.

Also remember that is the show is completely outdoors (no roof over the seating), and there’s a chance for rain – bring a poncho or something.

Hey Rob.
You going to have a awesome time..I did the Front Row in 2012…You’ll love Soundcheck.
My buddy is flying over for 2 shows in Canada…
When you get your merch can you please take a photo of it all? I’m keen to see the hoodie.

DDL & DIRTY MOVIES up close at soundcheck will be excellent bro… :wink:

IF I dont care about VIP check in and want to walk in whenever I feel like it, then going back to the car isnt an issue, correct? I dont want to even consider carrying stuff around.

Exactly. I can barely keep track of myself at VH shows, let alone extra baggage
