Page 4 of 6

Anita and Heinz of Cape Town, South Africa are on holiday across America and following Rammstein though several cities. Heinz said it was a dream-come-true to see Van Halen for the first time right here in Denver after the band has been an obsession of his more than twenty years. Sharing a story that her mother had never heard before, this Van Halen fan was throwing up tequila and salad in the McNichols Sports Arena parking lot in 1984 before Van Halen even took to the stage.

While this fan was in Salt Lake City Utah, he fondly remembers buying 1984 on the album's release date.
