VAN HALEN ON-STAGE DISASTER ENSUES IN NORTH CAROLINA
The Internet is unforgiving. Previous mishaps like this might be talked about, but now anyone with a built-in video recorder on their camera can spread anything to the whole world in minutes. Watch below as a disaster unfolded due to a synth track miscue in Van Halen’s famous “Jump” on their current “reunited” world tour stop in Greensboro, NC.
“What happens when you play back a prerecorded synthesizer track at 48K instead of the intended 44.1K? The whole track plays back a little bit faster and at a slightly higher pitch, that’s what. A dissonant musical mess ensues, trapping the guitarist and bassist in an on-stage musical hell with nowhere to go.” [Gizmodo]
Give credit to the guys… they certainly try their best to cover up the obvious calamity which is beyond their control. Miscues be damned, I’m still psyched to see this tour with Axl at Madison Square fucking Garden on November 13!
