2012-07-05 Berlin, Germany 2 (with HD, DVD)

Second night in Berlin was the show about Mike McCready. He played a part of 'Eruption' solo before "Sad", and then he closed the show with a sort of 'Eruption' based "Yellow Ledbetter" solo. 'This is Miky Van Halen, mmm... Mike McCready right there!' - introduced him Ed. Another highlight was unexpected jam, when prior to "Corduroy" Ed faced some technical problems with his equipment. Other band members after short conversation played improvisational jam with some nice Mike's solo work. Never happened such an amazing live thing since many years, maybe since 90's when Pearl Jam often played live improv compositions. This jam was good, not short, and very smooth, so it could be considered as a piece of their rehearsal work for the new album. Why not?
Ed voice was getting better and better with each night, and Berlin-2 was not bad at all. Audience was very hot, restlessly crowd-surfing, so Ed two times for one show had to urge people in the pit to make steps back.

2012-07-04 Berlin, Germany 1 (with DVD, HD)

In Berlin Ed's voice slightly improved in comparison to previous shows, though still was hoarse. Audience was very enthusiastic, performing a lot of crowd surfing. Near the end of "Jeremy" the gigantic banner 'We Keep On Rockin In The Free World With U' appeared on the right-side balcony, and Ed addressed it introducing Neil Young as a songwrighter for the band and saying that this was one of the biggest banners he had ever seen. Ray Cameron (Matt's son) joined the band on the stage taking Mike's guitar (Mike armed himself with tambourine instead), while Stone broke into his firing solo for "Rockin' In The Free World". Before "Even Flow" Mike's mother came onto the stage, and the audience sang 'Happy Birthday' very loudly to honor her.

This is an audience, youtube based (HD only), multi-camera edited video (with Vegas Pro 11 as 720p), s-board audio, 25 songs out of 28 included. Best picture quality option is HD video.

2012-07-02 Prague, Czech Republic (with DVD, HD)

'Dobry vecher! (good evening)' - were the first words of Eddie before the band started this long and tense show. 'Dobry vecher' - he repeated before the last song (actually saying hello instead of good-bye), but the crowd pardoned him instantly. Throughout the whole show the band received very warm, unexpectedly warm welcome. As Boom was playing "Wasted Reprise" Ed talked about his recent injury, about how he couldn't even use his right arm and didn't know whether he could play in a band, and how happy he is here before such a wonderful audience. Before "Yellow Ledbetter" Ed joked in Czech something about inviting people to drink beer and promising to pay for it ('ya platit!' or like that).

After the first verse of "Do The Evolution" Eddie improvised some sing-along with the crowd, bewildering the other band members and disrupting the whole song, but this mess was a great moment of live fun, and everyone enjoyed. The audience continued singing 'oo-uo-oh!' before the 2-nd encore making Eddie dance a bit. Ed improvised more, completely altering lyrics for "Save It For Later" tag. "Unthought Known" ended with a broken string in Ed's guitar. Ed's voice was worn and hoarse, but at the beginning of the show he sounded almost fresh.

This is an  audience multi-camera edited video of the entire show, by Blink-Eye. Audio is sound-board.

2012-06-30 Arras, France (with DVD)

After "Corduroy" Eddie said, that the band on the neighbouring stage is so loud that he wonders whether they could do "Nothingman" louder or not. The sound of this band can be heard throughout the whole show. And at the final bow, after a short conversation with Stone, Ed laughed: 'I don't know who they are, but I just wanna thank them too, they were part of the show.' And as Mike was making pictures with his new camera, Ed, Jeff, Matt and Boom started dancing to their music! Prior to "Breath" Ed told another story of the past: almost 30 years ago, while he was making music in his bedroom, Jeff and Stone were already in a band, and through these years they had any kind of relationship.
This French show was the show of many bottles of wine for Ed. After "Jeremy" he said: 'This is the most memorable bottle of Bordeaux that I had in my whole life time!' And as the band broke into "Alive", Ed totally messed the whole first verse. And after "Yellow Ledbetter", for which Mike altered his parts, Ed poured the rest of his wine on to his head. His voice at this show was very hoarse (the lowest moment for him was "Black" outro), but better than at the previous dates.

This is an audience video of almost full show, multi-camera for 17 songs (only about a minute or two in total from between the songs is missing), youtube based. Audio is sound-board.
