    ...And you could pick which one, what would it be? Mine would be Oakland 1981. I don't know if they professionaly shot any entire shows on the 1984 tour, but if they did that would be awesome.

    I don't think it exists, but I love to see the "parachuting into the stadium" event. Is that the same one? Oakland -

    Well everyone knows that the Oakland shows were touched up on various degrees, but damn to have THE original tapes would be cool. And yes, if they put that bad boy out on DVD, I'd buy it in a second. Out.

    If I had to pick just one, I would probably take Oakland '81 just because I've seen some of it and it's killer. But how about a box set with one show from every tour? How cool would that be?!?!

    Without sounding morbid, we will probably have to wait until somebody else owns them.

    http://www.van-halen.com/newsite/1978tour.html

    9/23/78
    Anaheim Stadium, Anaheim, CA

    Van Halen stole the show by hiring look-alikes to parachute from an airplane into the stadium. An announcer frantically declared, "From out of the sky, Van Halen is coming into the stadium!!" Looking as though they would land right on the stage, the four parachutists maneuvered to an area just outside the stadium gates at the last minute. Moments later, Van Halen, dressed in parachute gear, took the stage arm-in-arm to a thunderous ovation. The bill in order of appearance was:

    Richie Lecea
    Sammy Hagar

    Black Sabbath
