    I've noticed that a lot of people on here mention a tour called "Hide Your Sheep" and was wondering what tour that was and why it was called that.

    It was the Diver Down tour, but I'm not sure where the phrase came from. It was also referred to as the "Kicking Ass and Taking Names Tour".

    I have read it was called Hide Your Sheep because a farmer was interviewed on tv about his thoughts on VH touring and coming to his city and he said "never mind hiding my daughter I am gonna hide my sheep!"...something like that it has been a while since I heard the story!

    Thanks for the info, everyone. I can now add that to my list of trivia about Van Halen.
    That's hilarious that they named the tour after that guy's comment. Van Halen rocks!
    You guys rock too!
