The Black Star Tour (and other appearances) w/ Avril - 2012
Abby Dawn Lanch Party, The Viper Room, LA - Mar 13, 2012 - "I'm With You" and "My Happy Ending". Obviously hot as hell. Cool performance though! (We are oh-so-funny...)
Abby Dawn Lanch Party, The Viper Room, LA - Mar 13, 2012 - Avril comes back to her roots, performing "Skater". Pretty subdued, acoustic performance. We thought it was very cool. Oh you need to turn the volume up if you want to hear. Check out the end and a sweet moment that Avril and Jim share (here is an animation of that).
Abby Dawn Lanch Party, The Viper Room, LA - Mar 13, 2012 - A short video of the performance, glimpses of Jim, but the band is there. Seems like a fun performance.
Stadium Merdeka Kuala Lumpur - Feb 18, 2012 - "I Love You" - the Jim parts (including the little dance when presenting Avril with the flowers from the band). It's practically the same thing, shot from two sliiiiiightly different angles. It's such a feel good clip, the band and Avril are having great time chugging champagne (not Jim, of course! ) and grooving. And the end is awesome, this is The Best Damn Band after all.
Stadium Merdeka Kuala Lumpur - Feb 18, 2012 - Owing to @claudialavigne we now have a video of Jim singing lead during the encore of the concert in Kuala Lumpur. The song is Foster The People's Pumped Up Kicks. Jim was over the freaking moon: "10thousand THANKS 2 @AvrilLavigne for letting me sing lead @fosterthepeople Pumped Up Kicks in front of 10k people 2nite! Amazing last show!"
Stadium Merdeka Kuala Lumpur - Feb 18, 2012 - Another clip of Jim baby performing Foster The People's Pumped Up Kicks. A lot better picture and sound despite the annoying watermark. Plus the banter before the song. We fixed the aspect ratio too. Enjoy.
Stadium Merdeka Kuala Lumpur - Feb 18, 2012 - And... another clip of Jim singing Pumped Up Kicks, albeit not full song. It's a bit shaky and blurry, but it improves.
Smart Araneta Coliseum, Manila - Feb 16, 2012 - A medley of a few uptempo songs (or rather, parts thereof). Some nice closeups as well. Pretty good quality.
Smart Araneta Coliseum, Manila - Feb 16, 2012 - A combo clip of "I Love You" and Alce. Jim and some Fekete parts. HQ and all that.
Smart Araneta Coliseum, Manila - Feb 16, 2012 - Another Jim highlights medley. At the beginning you can see the band buying time until Avril shows up. Check out Jim's incredible vocal range after that.
Smart Araneta Coliseum, Manila - Feb 16, 2012 - Avril's introduction of the band, Jim's vocal solo on Smile and the band playing the interlude, the most important parts of the show for us , all in one place.
Smart Araneta Coliseum, Manila - Feb 16, 2012 - When You're Gone, HQ video shot from close. Gotta love the crowd, and how excited they are. As Jim baby put it on Twitter: "AMAZING show 2nite in Manilla w/ @AvrilLavigne @Ferlazz @rodneyondrums @altberry @stevefekete - one of the best crowds EVER.Thank u Manilla!"
Mastercard Centre, Beijing - Feb 14, 2012 - The beginning of the show. First, Black Star instrumental; it's really awesome, regardless that you can't see The Best Damn Band. Then parts of What The Hell and Skater. With Jim. Well, of course!
Osaka Jo Hall, Osaka - Feb 09, 2012 - A few cool Jim moments from the Osaka show.
Osaka Jo Hall, Osaka - Feb 09, 2012 - The band intro and parts of Smile. The video would be perfect if it weren't for the pretty bad singalong of the guy who was recording it. So we had to chop it off. But Jim's solo at the end is amazing.
Saitama Super Arena Tokyo - Feb 05, 2012 - Pretty cool video of the band interlude. It's shot from far but it's HD and the sound is awesome. Watch the top right corner!
Saitama Super Arena Tokyo - Feb 05, 2012 - Entire Smile. Shot from far, but you can see the action on the screens top left and right. Excellent sound and performance. Check out Jim's vocal solo 2:25-2:45. Amazing, isn't it?
Music Station, TV Asahi Tokyo - Feb 03, 2012 - Hours of waiting to perform Smile. Pretty cool video, despite the fact it's not the full song and there is no Jim solo. (mac version)
