In 1986, I told my mom that I was sleeping over my friend Jay's house so I could wait out all night to buy tickets to Van Halen's show at the Niagara Falls Convention Center. It was the first tour with new lead singer Sammy Hagar, and we were all jammin' "Why Can't This Be Love" in our boom boxes on a daily basis. I made $80 a week working at Burger King, so shelling out $25 to see Van Halen was kind of a big deal. I ended up getting 17th row. That same ticket today would have cost me about $250.
