On Monday Classic Van Halen Footage Goes Online was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Upgraded, vintage concert footage of Van Halen live in Fresno, California over two shows in 1978 and 1979 has surfaced online. According to the source, the material from the Selland Arena concerts on the band's first two world tours has been remastered frame by frame in uncompressed HD "from my original Fuji single-8 films."
The September 22, 1978 footage features clips of set-opener "On Fire" from the band's self-titled debut, and the encore of "Bottoms Up" - 6 months before it would appear on the band's second album.
The March 25, 1979 concert was the opening night of the group's world tour in support of the newly-released "Van Halen II" album, including clips of show-opener "Light Up The Sky" and mid-set tune, "On Fire." - Check out the videos here.
