    Van Halen remains one of the most important and influential bands of all time. Formed in Los Angeles in 1974, the band quickly won a loyal hometown fan base with their electrifying live shows. From the moment they released their self-titled 1978 debut album, Van Halen shook the foundations of rock, thanks largely to Roth’s peerless showmanship, Eddie Van Halen’s revolutionary guitar virtuosity and their songwriting abilities. It changed rock music forever.

    The band’s first album proved one of the biggest selling rock debuts, with key tracks like “Eruption,” “Running with the Devil,” “Jamie’s Cryin’,” “You Really Got Me” and “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” leading the way. The next year, the band followed up with “Van Halen II,” which included the hit “Dance the Night Away.”

    Subsequent albums like “Women and Children First” (1980), “Fair Warning” (1981) and “Diver Down” (1982), along with worldwide touring, solidified the band’s reputation for innovative and unparalleled live performances. Classic Van Halen tracks from the early 80’s include “Everybody Wants Some,” “Unchained”, “And The Cradle Will Rock”, “Beautiful Girls”, “Mean Street” and “Somebody Get Me A Doctor” just to name a few.

    With their sixth album, released in, and titled “1984”, Van Halen rose to stratospheric heights. Recorded at Eddie Van Halen’s 5150 Studios, the multi-platinum smash yielded one of Van Halen’s signature hits, “Jump,” which remained #1 on the Billboard charts for an astounding five weeks straight. Other hits from the album include “Panama,” “Hot For Teacher” and “I’ll Wait.”



    The band’s record of achievement is hard to top. Presented with two Diamond Award RIAA Certified Status’ for their albums “Van Halen” and “1984”, Van Halen joins an elite short list of two time Diamond Award honorees in the history of the music industry. The Diamond Award is presented to an artist for album sales of 10 million or more units. They are also in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most #1 hits on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart than any other band in history.



    Inducted into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame in March of this year, Van Halen has produced a treasured body of work that fans will admire for decades to come.

    LOL, nice to see them doing some press for once, I don't know about the other cities, but neither Chicago show is sold out. I just went on Ticketmaster and pulled up 8 seats together for each show (this is 3 days after they went on sale). No problem

    They were crappy balcony seats, but if it's "sold out" that should mean that NO seats are left.

    You've got to give them credit for putting it put there though. They've done a pretty good job so far spreading the word and if they need to fudge the numbers in order to light a fire......

    I did, I said it's nice to see them doing some press

    It's already mountains more than they did in 2004. They'll make a pretty penny this time around as well, no doubt.

    And they only have to split it 3 ways this time LOL


    There were plenty of attendance police around here in 2004, just helping to keep things honest this time around

    LOL, yep. Attendance police must be objective all the way 'round.

    In fact, there's really no such thing as COMPLETELY sold out gigs for 20,000 seat arenas. There's always an empty row or ten, depending on the city, people who cancelled or bailed out, inflated estimates, box office and broker holds that fail to move or are forgotten.

    I didn't really expect this to be much bigger than the 04 tour and totally
    underestimated the Dave factor. So amazing that he can suck so much
    on his own but his chemistry with Ed and Al has em lined up around the
    block.

    yup it's amazing. Dave on his own = one night at the local casino. Dave + Ed = 2 nights at the ACC.

    Keeeerist!!!! Those attendance police in 2004 practically sent spies to each show to physically count the people and take photos of any empty seats.
