    Default Question about OU812 Tour

    There is a website that is new called http://www.trackmyconcerts.com/.

    It is pretty cool, I have been entering all the concerts I have been to in it, but it is difficult coming up with some of the dates.

    I saw Van Halen in Greensboro, NC on the OU812 Tour, I think it was in the fall of '88, not positive. Anyway, I have been googling for a day now looking for the date of that show anywhere, and I can't find it. I am wondering, does anyone have a tour book from that tour or an old T-shirt with tour dates on it that may be able to tell me when they played that show?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Thanks for the info Lovewalkinin. I thought it was fall of '88 because I remember driving from college to Greensboro to see it, not from home.

    It is a new site, still beta testing. I had to add the band in for almost all of the shows I have seen. As more people start adding stuff, it will build a database then you can just click on a box on the show and add it to your profile.

    What are some other similar websites that allow one to look up former concert dates, setlists, etc.?

    Well the old Official VH site used to have all the dates up on their site, it was a little inaccurate but pretty good. I've been wanting to get the same type of thing going here which is what that Day to Day forum is that I need to start updating again and get it complete.

    Anyway go here:

    That OU812 show you were asking about buckeye was October 6, 1988.

    Thanks Brett. That Webarchive link was cool, that would be neat to have that info here.

    I looked at the Day to Day forum, but not knowing the date, it would have taken forever to find it.

    Andrew, I don't know of any sites that list old concert dates. I have been trying to find dates of some shows I went to, and it is hard, some are documented well (like the Robert Plant shows I saw in the late 80's) and some are impossible to find (my first show, Ratt, in 1986).
