    Default Anniversary of Van Halenís Oakland, 1981 Shows: Highest Quality Footage Unearthed!

    32 years ago today, Van Halen kicked off a multi-show run at the Oakland Coliseum as part of their Fair Warning tour. From July 11-13th, 1981, the band performed three consecutive nights in front of sold out crowds of 11,300 people each night. The Oakland í81 shows have become legendary, thanks to the band deciding to preserve some of it to film.The footage was edited into three videos. which aired on MTV as promos for the Fair Warning album. These videos have been floating around on the internet and bootleg tapes and DVDs for ages, and are some of the most cherished footage that fans have.

    Video Upgrade! To celebrate the anniversary of this historic occasion, the Van Halen News Desk is unveiling the highest quality footage that has ever surfaced of these three videos. Over the next three days, we will release one video each day. Today we have featured ďHear About It LaterĒ. Wednesday and Thursday will see the release of ďSo This Is Love?Ē and ďUnchainedĒ, respectively. (Embedded right here, in this article). The new videos have superior picture and sound than previously circulated. (Note to the serious VH bootleg junkies- this isnít simply cleaned up or enhanced, itís from a better source than ever before).

    These three videos mark the next additions to our new YouTube channel, the Van Halen Vault. We will be using this channel to premiere some of the greatest Van Halen video and audio to our subscribers. Please subscribe to our YouTube channel to be the first to see these awesome videos.

    And after you enjoy watching the Oakland footage and wishing for a time machine, be sure to check out our excellent article, Mystery of the Fair Warning tour footage ó Does a complete Oakland concert exist on film?

    Last month, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of another famous Van Halen event, we unveiled the highest quality videos of Van Halenís performance at the 1983 US Festival. You can catch those videos here.

    Well, anniversaries do happen...wait for it...annually.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Well, would you rather we waited three more years to debute these videos?

    I don't see much of an improvement on the video, actually. Maybe it's just my eyes.

    The standout hear is the audio. Al's drums actually have a punch to them; before I thought everything sounded really muddy. It's quite clearer. And that's awesome.
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    I have been a bit out of the VHTrading.com loop the past year or so, kind of lost interest. Haven't talked to Wes or many of your other Arizona friends from VHT.

    Who or what is the new (better) source of these "Upgrades". Or is that "confidential"?
