    Default Did anyone see the "OU812" tour?

    I'm really interested in what fans thought of VH on the "OU812" tour, since that we haven't seen a lot of bootlegs from that tour or much footage from over the years. All I've seen or heard is footage/audio from the "Monsters of rock" tour, but nothing afterwards.
    The Tokyo show was cool, but what about the American leg....
    It would've been amazing to witness VH starting the show with "A.F.U".
    Any highlights or cool moments from that tour you can share?
    What the stage was like compared to the "5150" tour?
    What is understood need not be discussed

    I saw them on the Monsters leg of that tour in Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium. I don't even recall them rolling back through KC apart from that, for that album. Spent the night in our car in the parking lot so we could get a good spot up close (standing room only GA on the floor/field) when the gates open, only to move back to the seats as the day went on because it was so hot and exhausting - just needed to sit back and relax. We kind of went back and forth between seats and the standing on the floor several times. It was all pretty loose as far as seating went. As for the show, it's kind of a blur. i just remember it was a long day and by the time VH went on, I was pretty fried.

    I saw it in Worcester, MA in 1988. I remember it being in the Fall and going with college friends just after the school year started. It was tremendous. I specifically remember Ed ripping into AFU to start the show. I had awesome seats along the side lower bowl. Can still see the whole moment. The energy was through the roof.


    Other songs I specifically remember are Panama, FWYS, and Eagles Fly. Wish I could still see more detailed moments from the night but I'm coming up with nothing.

    I saw them in Indy on the Monsters of Rock tour and the first show of the official OU812 tour in Lexington. Eddie was still playing keyboards on that tour. They opened with Summer Nights in Indy and AFU in Lexington. They played Runnin' With the Devil and debuted Finish What Ya Started in Lexington. Eddie got mixed up with the setlist and started jamming the intro to Sucker in a Three Piece when they were supposed to have been playing FWYS. When he turned around, Sammy had on his acoustic guitar and gave Ed a what's up look. Ed walked over to him and they started cracking up and Al just went with it. After the song, he put his arm around Ed and told the crowd "Eddie fucked up." The crowd went crazy and they introduced FWYS.

    Great times!!!

    Because he's a guitar hero. Nobody wanted to see him playing keyboards.

    I liked him playing keyboards live. It seemed inauthentic when he didn't.

    I saw this tour in October of 1988 in Hartford. Sat in the sky boxes so the sound wasn't the greatest.
    It was pretty cool to see them live though!!

    Me and Redfoot should compare notes. I, too, was at the Monsters of Rock show in Indy and the Lexington, KY show. My car got broke into at the Lexington show. Fuckers got a radar detector and a tennis racquet. Both were fairly new. I hope the racquet ruined their backhand.

    I saw this tour in Atlanta. Can't remember a lot of details. It was good though. I was about 5 rows back on Mike's side of the stage. Eddie wore a yellow shirt, jeans and yellow tennis shoes, lol. I liked him playing the keyboards live as well, Sammy was a perfectly capable soloist to cover stuff like "Love Walks in".
