Oh my fucking God!!! How did you come across this??? Best concert of my life ever! I was 15 years old and after an M-80 was set off and everyone jumped up, I ran about 30 yards and wedged myself right in the corner of the catwalk on Michael Anthony’s side, not to be moved all night. Front row and even caught 2 picks that night. This is incredible! Going back 31 years in a time machine! Thank you for this moment. Wish I had a copy of this.

yes great memories. Love the VH time machine. I’ll send you a link to files.

I loved finding this page. Thank you! My first Van Halen concert. Sound was always terrible at the Cow Palace, and this was no exception. Your recordings are far better than my recollection! We’d heard that the boys were partying hard to celebrate Alex’s birthday (which I learned today was actually the day before). Like so many rock/metal concerts in the bay area in the 1980s it was epic – lots of partying in the parking lot, a huge line to get in, and unbelievable energy. It would have been better if my buddy hadn’t overdone the Jack Daniels and champagne in the parking lot and ended up in Rock Med, but still an awesome memory.
