Video Surfaces of Van Halen Rocking Rare Classics At Soundcheck

(hennemusic) Some rare Van Halen soundcheck video from their "A Different Kind Of Truth" tour has surfaced. Footage of the band's April 21st soundcheck at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC was caught on video and synced with soundboard audio captured from the signal to the inner ear monitors worn by the band members.

As David Lee Roth skips the pre-show ritual in order to save his voice for the show, it's up to the Van Halen family to perform the daily soundcheck routine, with Wolfgang often filling in on vocals for the absent Roth. In part 1 of the footage, Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang Van Halen run through instrumental versions of "Unchained," "Runnin' With The Devil," "She's The Woman" and "Tattoo."

Part 2 features two rare gems that have yet to make appearances in the show: "As Is," from the new album, and Van Halen II's "Light Up The Sky." Watch it here.
