    Hey guys. Here was something that jumped out at me that I would love clarified. While searching for Van Halen items on ebay, I noticed a lobby poster on sale from 1987 which has Van Halen opening up for Bon Jovi in PHILADELPHIA?

    Is this true? I know about VH in 1995 in Europe opening up for them but here in the states? During the Sammy era? Someone help me out with this. I am having a hard time grasping this as reality.

    In 1987? No fucking way. Jon Bon Jovi only started to brag about this since 1995.

    It is definitely 1987 at Freedom Hall in the US. Look at it by going to ebay.com and type "Van Halen Poster" in "Search." You'll see it with your own eyes. Believe me. I was just as surprised and amazed as you all are.

    Yeah, I've seen that poster on there before, it's gotta be wrong. Van Halen played a grand total of ZERO shows in 1987.

    If Glenn says it's a fake, it's a fake. Hell, he knows what Eddie is going to eat for breakfast tomorrow
