Third row left for 5150 tour. Van Halen literally blew me away. Seats in front of the speaker cabinets. The first guitar riff, I dropped my Coke. Bear patrol right in front of me. I just shrugged with my arms up. Wow. Van Halen was having fun that night. Firing on all cylinders. The album had just hit #1 on the charts. Michael Anthony was in front of my date & myself. A roadie came out & gave her a pick. Lol. Eddie was smiling the whole show. BTO opened up. Randy Bachman came out stood right next to me watching Eddie. In awe of his talent. Are you kidding me. Best show ever. Cherry on top their encore cover of Led Zeppelin’s Rock n Roll. Then leaving find out my date locked her keys in the car. Had to luckily bum a ride home from a friend. – Craig Spencer
