Van Halen concert tickets are now available from Bay Area ticket broker Top Notch Seats. Tickets to all the remaining shows on the Van Halen 2012 North American tour can be found at http://www.topnotchseats.com.
Campbell, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2012
Van Halen concert tickets for the legendary band’s 2012 North American tour are now available online from Top Notch Seats, the premier Bay Area ticket broker. Tickets can also be purchased on mobile devices at http://www.topnotchseats.com.
“Given the fact that the group recently postponed the back half of their tour schedule, getting your hands on tickets to what is sure to be a memorable night has just become more important,” said Paul Hillig of Top Notch Seats. “Early reviews are that the group is rocking audiences from start to finish. “
Van Halen was formed in Pasadena in the early-1970s, but their first big break didn’t come until 1978, when the release of their first album garnered them national attention and high praise from critics. In the years that followed, the band became known for living fast-paced lifestyles, getting involved in various controversies and giving stellar live performances.
The scope of the group changed over the decades, but lead guitarist Eddie Van Halen has been a constant in the mixture, providing a bevy of legitimate musical talents and a sex appeal that has brought him millions of female fans from all over the globe.
Lucky people that are able to get their hands on tickets to Van Halen concerts such as the June 1st show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles or the June 3rd show at Oakland’s Oracle Arena will be treated to a show that represents the past, present and future of rock n’ roll. Their June 5th stop at the HP Pavilion in San Jose will likely be one of the most in demand.
The notorious David Lee Roth is now back in the fold and the band that he once detested has welcomed him back with open arms. Eddie’s son Wolfgang joined the band in 2006 after the departure of Michael Anthony, and he has fit in nicely. The on-stage presence of both father and son is unprecedented in the modern music industry.
“Don’t miss out on your chance to purchase a few Van Halen concert tickets,” said Hillig. “If you are considering giving a gift of a few tickets to Van Halen to a friend or loved one, know that you are on the verge of giving them their favorite gift of the year.”

Cheap Trick may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 70s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “The Flame,” Cheap Trick are a musical institution. Anyone familiar with Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report will note that Cheap Trick wrote and performed the theme song.
With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences) for their contributions to the music industry. Cheap Trick were featured in the John Varvatos Spring 2008 ad campaign.
The band has most recently performed their Dream Police album in its entirety along with an orchestra in select cities across the US. This innovative show also includes many other songs from the band’s extensive catalog, garnering them critical acclaim after performances in venues such as the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
Their most current release, The Latest, (released on CD, vinyl and 8-track) has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they continue their legacy of over 35 years in the music industry.

Five second-place winners will receive two tickets to the show and two nights at Caesars Palace, and 25 third place winners will receive two tickets to the show. Bonus entries can be earned by promoting the sweepstakes via Facebook and/or Twitter, visiting participating authorized Yamaha dealer locations and scanning the QR code on the sweepstakes poster with your smart phone, or by mail.

The Million Dollar Piano is based on a state-of-the-art million-dollar instrument hand crafted by Yamaha. Four years in the making, Yamaha Entertainment Group of America and the designers and engineers from the Yamaha Design Lab in Hamamatsu, Japan worked with Elton to bring his vision to life. The piano encompasses a nine-foot, highly modified, hand assembled grand piano, surrounded in a high-grade acrylic body lined in 68 LED video screens and lights. The result is a spectacular, highly visionary work of art that can respond to Elton’s touch and can be programmed by Elton’s world-class video experts to transform the piano in an ever-changing array of images, patterns, lights and colors.
The Million Dollar Piano debuted Sept. 28, 2011 to standing ovations, as part of a three-year residency at The Colosseum.
