Van Halen II Era Concert Footage Goes Online
The clip the track from the band's groundbreaking 1978 self-titled debut follows recently-posted clips from Fresno shows in 1978 and 1979 that were remastered frame by frame in uncompressed HD "from my original Fuji single-8 films", according to the source. Some of the videos have been removed from YouTube by the source.
The release of "Van Halen II" recently marked its 35th anniversary; the follow-up to the group's groundbreaking 1978 debut was recorded at Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood less than a week after the end of the band's first world tour.
Van Halen kicked off their "World Vacation Tour" in Fresno two days after the sophomore album's release; the band went on to play 97 shows by the time the trek wrapped up October 7, 1979 at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Watch the video here.
