1983 – Devore, CA @ US Festival

Official 3-song release played on Showtime
^ Full show, decent quality

People say they were wasted…and especially rag on Dave thinking he actually forgot the words.  Well, there’s no doubt they ALL were pretty wasted partying all day, but overall I don’t see a big problem with their performance.  It was still pretty damn tight, considering, and everyone should know that Dave’s schtick for the 1982/83 Tour was to “forget the fucking words” during the opening song (Romeo Delight) in the 2nd verse.

If the rest of the band was fucked up during the performance, you could have fooled me. It’s obvious with Dave but Eddie, Mike and Alex are tight. Eddie puts on a guitar clinic basically. Dave would always skip lyrics live, but this concert he went overboard. Sucks having to wait that long to go on but I can’t imagine them playing checkers to pass the time. VH always played with energy and this performance is no different.
