Van Halen - Caracas, Venezuela 1983 (Limited 2 x Vinyl LP)
By the start of the 1980s, following a string of multi-Platinum albums and electric live performances – due in no small part to the onstage chemistry between guitarist Eddie Van Halen and singer David Lee Roth - Van Halen were an unstoppable force. Their 1982 album Diver Down followed peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard chart and went four times Platinum in the U.S. alone. In support of the album, the group toured worldwide through 1982 and 1983. 1983 would also be the first and only time the group would travel to South America, and it is from this leg of the tour that the show featured on this release originates. Recorded at the first of three dates at Venezuela’s 20,000-capacity Poliedro de Caracas, the performance was broadcast simultaneously over FM radio. On top form and playing a rich selection from their current and back catalogue - including ‘(Oh) Pretty Woman’, ‘Eruption’ and ‘Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love’ among numerous other Halen classics - this extraordinary show is now finally available for fans of this enduring collective to add to their collections.
