    As it turns out, another eagle-eyed fan confirmed that the last three pics are NOT from Cain's Ballroom, but they are likely from another small venue in the Midwest during the same time frame. I was hoping somebody might be able to help pinpoint the date and the venue?!
    I don't know the answer to where the last 3 pics are from but your probably right. A small venue that most likely only held only 2-3 thousand max. I never knew that VH opened for Montrose for the Cain's show so I guess you learn something new everyday. Poor Montrose{as well as a host of other headliners from the late 70s}got blown off the stage im sure by the mighty VH.

    Van Halen played in the Buffalo area twice in 1978. Once opening for Black Sabbath, but also a show with Journey/Montrose at a now defunct venue called "The Century Theater". I have never seen any photos from either of those shows (at least that were labelled), so if anyone knows of some it would be cool to see them. I csn't believe they were in my town twice that year!

    It can't be "Van Halen" without Roth, any more than it can be "Van Halen" without Eddie.

    Wow, cool pics of an era we barely have any of.

    I'm particularly tickled to see a closer shot of Al's set up from the back. It's rather interesting to see that he is using the Tama snare for live work instead of the usual super sensitive. And the gaff tape...it still makes me curious on when he started doing that and how much muffling he wanted. The weird thing is that old snares came with an internal muffling, my '76 super sensitive has one, so I don't understand why he would do that. Apparently he likes to tension the batter head to the tightness of a wooden table, that might have brought a necessity for muffling.

    Man, that's the Eddie i love!

    Those two fans look like they just won the lottery.
    Can you imagine the sounds coming out of that guitar, during sound check?
    That's VH hitting their raw, creative peak.

    Man, it must have been badass to be soaking up all of that, as it happened.

    Funny thing I noticed about Buffalo shows the concert promoters " Harvey & Corky " is actually THE Harvey Weinstien movie bigwig of Miramax pictures.




    Just recently found out about this book sounds to be a good read about the sleazy behind the scenes gossipy sex and drugs stuff surrounding promoters and so forth. Harvey Weinstein is mentioned in it although there's no VH in it as the subject matter predates them.







    Here's one from Niagra Falls NY @ Niagra Falls Convention Center September 8, 1978.

    Hberg, you are AWESOME! Thanks man.

    Yeah, Harvey and Corky were the big show promoters in the area, and his rise to mogul status is a Buffalo legend.

    EVH still has the pink jumper!!!!
    It's a little odd to see him wearing it in his fifties...he looks like an aging gay man. I didn't realize he still had that kind of flamboyance (open zipper!).

    Yeah I was surprised to see him wearing it too. It's an older pic from around 2008 or so. I believe the lady Mara Chai Hyde was his hairstylist at the time of his Guitar World cover shoot. She has a few other pics on her Instantgram page.
