Notes: With the CFL Grey Cup championship football on today (Sunday, ESPN2, 3 p.m. PST) I thought I’d up a Van Halen show from the Great White North. This is a darn good recording for the time period. Unfortunately the first 30 mins or so are missing. Not sure why this is and don’t know the back story. But this is all I have ever seen circulate. Enjoy!

Holy Jesus!!! Love this thread title so exiting to wonder what the connection was for a split second.

So the show VH did there in Wiinepeg had nothing to do with Grey Cup back then. The threads just titled this way because of current timing coincidence and history sake. There’s a show advert for this concert. I’m too lazy to post it now I’m sure everyone here’s seen it anyways.

Gotta have this show don’t even care about sound I like hearing the bootlegs the first time no matter what just to hear it since it’s one I’ve never heard before.

Thanks a million!!! B-)

Thanks for the heads up!

The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!
