1981 – Greensboro, NC @ Greensboro Coliseum

Van Halen live on 8/25/1981 in Greensboro, NC. MUST LISTEN, excellent audio bootleg and is the #1 best quality from the Fair Warning tour. This is Van Halen at the peak of powers on the Fair Warning Tour. Plus you get the extended show intro/jam of “On Fire” and Dave’s Sounds of Summertime rap before “Ice Cream Man.”

Audio Bootleg Quality: A+

Um, wow. This is incredible!! Thanks for sharing; I’ve been wanting to hear a good recording of a 1981 show for quite some time, and this delivers.

The Mighty Van Halen

Cool. This show is the best quality from 1981.


Any chance of getting a download link? For some reason plays really crap for me…..


This is the best quality VH live show I have ever heard. Early Xmas gift for me!

The Mighty Van Halen

Yes one of THE BEST VH bootlegs. And lucky it’s 1981 Tour too!

Dwight Holt

Is this the show where Dave threatened to beat someone’s ass for throwing a liqueur bottle at him?????
I WAS THERE!!!!!!!!!


Bad ass! I love stories like that. I was at the El Paso show, also presented here. I remember that show with such detail because I was in Awe! It was my first concert ever and well; the rest is history.
