Van Halen live bootleg from 9/22/1978 in Fresno, CA at the Selland Arena. Solid A quality on this audio. The video is the infamous 1978 super 8mm footage that has been upgraded over the years. Most recent upgrade here from 2019 where each frame was painstakingly cleaned up and scanned in frame-by-frame thanks to Fresno Media Restoration. The mighty Van Halen opening for Black Sabbath on their first tour!
Location: Fresno, CA
Venue: Selland Arena
Headliner: Black Sabbath

This is a great one!
was lucky enough to see them On this tour a month earlier opening for Sabbath at the Chicago amphitheater. The show and some purple microdot blew my mind. What a way to go.
