    How about "35 days from now , VH will commence mixing the new album" ?

    Looks like Cheech and Chong must have designed the graphics. What's with the "Califfornia"?

    BTW those first two pictures are not the LA Coliseum.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Yeah, I was trying to figure that out too. There's someone holding a Canadian flag in the background so I would assume it is an area somewhere like that. I was thinking it might be the old Tigers stadium in Detroit?

    Well seeing as there is no band in the picture, I thought it might just be a random 70s Stadium Festival picture.

    I pretty sure it is Municipal stadium in Cleveland:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Municip...28Cleveland%29

    Anyone know if they ever played there?

    Yeah, that is what I'm thinking. Look at the clothes, it seems to me to be much further back in the '70's. Maybe '73, '74 . The hair and clothes seem to suggest to me it was not 1979. Maybe 1974.

    I thought it was night time when VH played this show.

    Ya know, I have to agree. Good observation. It does have that look of just coming out of the 60's and into the early 70's more so than heading into the 80's.

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Nice detective work there Columbo! You might be right.Seems like too many tied tops and bell bottoms to be 1979.Of course people still dressed like that in '79 but that shot seems like too many.It suggests a slightly earlier time.
