Van Halen Tour Books
A Van Halen tour book collection isn't too tough to complete, since there is a relatively small number to track down. I've completed my collection over the years by ordering them from the now-defunct Van Halen Fan Club Store, the current vanhalenstore.com, and from concerts I've attended. Check out vhvault.com for more pictures on most of the tour books.
Note: There were no tour books issued for the 1991-93 For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge/Live: Right Here, Right Now or the 2004 The Best Of Both Worlds tours. Also, Van Halen's first tour in 1978, in which they were mostly an opening band, did not produce an official tour book, although VH is featured on a couple of pages in the 1978 Black Sabbath tour book. Van Halen did headline some shows in Japan during June 1978, which did produce a rare tour book that I was able to track down on eBay - definitely the toughest to find in the lot.
