Van Halen concert chronology

Sammy Hagar chose Alice in Chains to be the opening act after seeing the music video for their hit single "Man In The Box" on MTV.[1][2]

At the two Fresno, California, shows, the band filmed and recorded material for the live double album Live: Right Here, Right Now and live VHS Van Halen: Right Here, Right Now – Live (later also released on DVD). Promotion for these live works was the foundation of the band's next tour.

This tour included the song "Jump" in the set list. This song from 1984 had been the band's only US Hot 100 number 1, but in his attempt to 'forget' the band's past, Sammy Hagar had refused to sing it when he joined the band in 1985. Now an established member of the line-up, he agreed to sing it more often. This tour also marked the first time that keyboards were not performed live on stage by Eddie Van Halen. Keyboard and piano parts were performed off stage by Night Ranger keyboardist Alan Fitzgerald.[3]

The tour was managed by touring veteran Scotty Ross, who has also managed the tours of Poison, Dio, Saliva and Celtic Woman.
