This fast-forward flip through Van Halen’s entire 10/16/07 show in Chicago is the best-looking and best-sounding YouTube evidence of what’s going on out there. Nevermind the 10-second dude-singing-in-car intro — he earned it! This 3-minute clip captures a wallop of flashing lights, Wolfgang at work, fresh flag-waving DLR ham, an “Atomic Punk” burndown, production grandeur, and other bigtastic stagetacular prowess. If this tour hadn’t sold a half-million tickets in ten minutes, they could plaster a VH logo here and have a TV commercial.


  1. Awesome stuff. Thanks for posting. I’m still holding out for MA to be brought back into the fold. I was listening to Women and Children First today to and from work……what an incredible album.
