Van Halen DVDs

(official & unofficial)

Van Halen has released only two official concert DVDs - Live Without A Net (1986) and Live: Right Here, Right Now (1993) - but collectors have had access to quite a few bootleg concerts, as well, although most are from the Van Hagar era. Obviously, the quality on these bootlegs isn't always the greatest, but until Van Halen opens its vaults and releases old concerts on CD and DVD, these bootlegs will have to do.

I can't seem to find a Web site that lists all of the available Van Halen bootleg DVDs. Odd ones periodically appear on eBay, and that's where I've picked up most of these.

Note: I was in attendance for the June 2004 concert DVD in Washington, DC. My buddy Tim Randolph and I had front row seats for that one. Check out my Van Halen Miscellaneous page for a scan of the ticket stub. I also saw the 1986 MTV Unleashed - Rockumentary being filmed in San Diego over a couple of evenings in late June 1986, at the same time I got my Red Devil II guitar signed by EVH. Read about that event at my Behind The Guitars - Red Devil II page.
