    Default 1984 Van Halen World Tour Ring

    I'm sure most members here have heard about these rings. They were given out to crew members who worked all of the 99 (sold out) shows. Very few exist. I have been wanting one ever since I saw one. This year is my 5th wedding anniversary and I told my wife that is what I would like. The very next day a VH collector posted his and said he was selling. I jumped at the chance to own it. Well, it has arrived and I am VERY happy to be the proud owner. This ring will be just like my wedding band in that it won't be leaving my finger ever. I thought you guys may enjoy seeing some photos of it since not many are out there. The box is also original and as I am told is very hard to find both together. The seller also gave me a hand written note from the Roadie who was the original owner. His name is Randy Townsend. Enjoy!

    pretty cool dude.

    I just recently saw someone on eBay selling a small statue of the Western Exterminator guy VH used on the 1984 tour. It was pretty cool. Was going for $260. Way too much for me to spend on something like that. But I would've loved it. I'm guessing the seller and the person who ultimately bought it are both members in here.

    here it is. Id love one of these someday. I once contacted Western Exterminator and they sent me a free t-shirt with this guy on it.

    Just curious...
    Where was the ring posted for sale, and can you share the selling price?

    If there's one, there's eventually got to be more, theoretically.

    I think he was also a stage manager on the 1988 Monsters of Rock tour.

    In a VH Collectors group on Facebook. As for the price, lets say that I could have bought a EVH Wolfgang Special and all 5 of those EVH 2015 pick tins.

    Yep! In the letter that came with the ring, he mentions that and how he started working for the band in December of 1983.
