Classic Albums Live Presents Van Halen
- The concept: musicians recreating a classic-rock album note-for-note
- The album: Van Halen’s self-titled 1978 debut
- The legacy: the album introduced the world to the two-hand tapping frenetics of Eddie Van Halen, the “oooohhhhwwwwwoooooowah yeeah!” of David Lee Roth, and a slew of singles custom-built for stadium singalongs
- The review: Rolling Stone ranked Van Halen 27 in the top 100 debut albums of all time
- The first song of the concert: “Runnin’ with the Devil”
- And after that: “Cool-down with the Devil”
- Really?: Nah, you know Classic Albums Live is going to play “Eruption”
- The bonus features: since the first Van Halen record is only 35:13 long, Classic Albums Live follows it with an hefty encore of other Van Halen hits
The Lakeland Center
It’s almost easier to count who hasn’t played at the Lakeland Center than who has. Since the all-purpose venue opened in 1974, its many halls have seen such stars as Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, Jerry Seinfeld, Prince, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and Kathy Gifford. Besides the top-tier lineup of music and comedy acts, The Lakeland Center also hosts theatrical productions, conventions and festivals, and seasonal ice skating for all ages.
