Notes:  Recorded from section 22 rows 4 and 5.  I moved a couple of times to avoid some chatter and clapping. 
As usual, I notice every little sound out of the people at a show, but the recording is fine, and there's not much
interference from them after all.  This was my second show of the tour and was a longer drive (~5 hours) than
I usually will do for a show.  But, this is the mighty Van Halen, and they're the reason I got so obsessed with
music in the first place.  It's another great show from the band despite some of Dave's attempts at hitting the
wrong notes.

Here's something else I've noticed at both shows.  They have video screens hanging way off to
both sides of the stage.  The video is OK for the occasional close-up, but the quality of the picture isn't so good
since it's not very clear.  This doesn't surprise me, but even as close to the stage as we were, there are a lot of
people who will just stare at the screens instead of looking at the band and especially during Ed's solo, use their
phone to shoot video of the screen.  Meanwhile, the ACTUAL Eddie Van Halen is performing right in front of us
in the flesh in crystal clear high definition reality.  If you're going to do video on your phone, at least turn the
damn thing the right way so the picture is horizontal like your flat screen TV instead of having it turned up on
its side.  Rant over.  Enjoy the show!
