    I've got 2 tickets to the first Farm Aid show held In Champaign-Urbana at the University of Illinois back in 84 (?). This was the first time Sammy and Eddie ever appeared on stage together. (Don't ask me why I didn't go--it's a long story and my therapist says I shouldn't talk about it anymore since the hysterical crying fits have stopped).

    The show had a little bit of controversy--family oriented TNN cut the broadcast when Sammy's dirty little mouth started spewing obscenities. I think they played "55", "Rock and Roll" and maybe something else. 5150 was still in the works.

    Anyway, they're in great shape and just sitting in a desk drawer. Any collectors interested?

    I'd buy them, but I'm moneyless

    Put them on Ebay too. They'd sell faster than you can say Van Halen Is The Best!

    I was there and it was excellent. Took an Amtrack train down to Urbana Illinois and spent the entire day seeing band after band after band until the Red Rocker came out and Kicked Ass with his band and special guest Eddie Van Halen! Damn that was a cool show. I still have the tour book that lists all the bands that played that day.
