    Default Ticket scan of your very first =VH= concert

    Hey folks,

    searched the entire forum and strangely didn't come across a similar thread. (if I missed something, please delete or move)

    In memory of Ed, I like to post a scan of my very first concert ticket here:

    Van Halen Grugahalle Dortmund 19041993.png

    It was an incredible show. Friends of mine and I stood in row 5 at the beginning ... eight minutes later, during Poundcake and Judgement Day we went throught the biggest washing machine ever and found ourselves back in row 16 ... then could fight our way back in front of the stage. Sammy, Edward, Michael and Alex were on their peak and gave us a fantastic concert. Will always remember the day when I "met" the legendary Edward Van Halen for the first time!

    Maybe you also didn't throw away your ticket and like to share it here.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    Can't upload pictures still lol. It was July 16, 1993 at Starlake Amphitheater in Burgettstown, PA right outside of Pittsburgh. But here's the video. Wrong date and last couple songs cut off but probably the best quality boot of the tour:

    No stubs anymore, but that was my first major show in general in addition to being my first VH show. It was 2 days after the Red Sox won the World Series & during Ed's solo, he walked up to the mic & went "If I was wearing socks tonight, they would be red."

    Not even the mighty Van Halen could make that shitbag song tolerable.

    Long the ticket stub long ago, but Sept 11, 1995 in Edmonton. One of the final shows of the Balance tour.

    I have no idea where my ticket stub is, but my first Van Halen concert was on 10/7/79 at The Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, CA, one night after this performance in San Diego, CA ...

    Mine was two months prior Coulda. Never saved the ticket stubs, but had to have a t-shirt. Bought my first bootleg parking lot shirt for this tour, cost me $4 bucks. Wore that thing out. It held up pretty well too. It wasn’t the wash it once and it disintegrates kind.

    BTW that soundboard recording sounds great. Usually can’t take listening to bootleg recordings anymore.
