VIDEO: Van Halen – New mix of complete Pittsburgh concert

Van Halen are currently on a summer break from their “A Different Kind Of Truth” tour.

Van Halen’s 2012 live shows began with an invite-only performance at the legendary Café Wha? in New York in January, followed by a similarly intimate gig in Los Angeles in early February.

After the band’s traditional warm-up show for friends and family in L.A., Van Halen opened up the tour in Louisville, Kentucky on February 18; they wrapped things up in New Orleans at the end of June, and are next set to play a series of dates in Japan in November.

On March 30, Van Halen played the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

A fan-shot multi-cam mix of the show was posted, and now the producers have regrouped to complete a new mix of the concert.

The youtube host writes:

“A few more cams were added along with some different editing choices (and i fixed some mistakes as well). There are a few more shots of AVH in this edit too!!”

“High quality camera work for most of the show captured from rows 1 and 2 and 17, and audio was recorded separately with a Sony PCM M10 unit with external binaural microphones.”

“Van Halen were on fire and delivered a stunning version of Girl Gone Bad and played the rare Blood and Fire where Eddie rips off a killer solo. Hope you enjoy the show!”
