A crowd of twenty Van Halen fans gathered at Zaffiro's Pizzeria in Marcus Parkwood Cinemas in hopes of winning The LOON's Unchained Van Halen VIP Experience tonight (Thrusday). With live music provided by 'Acoustically Troy' and the aroma's of spicy pizza in the air, SLOAN conducted the highly anticipated drawing for the amazing package that includes;


  • Two reserved tickets in rows 2-15
  • A Backstage Tour
  • A Pre-show party
  • Early entrance into the venue
  • A Van Halen VIP commemorative laminate
  • An Exclusive Van Halen gift bag
  • A Commemorative VIP ticket
  • Crowd-free merchandise shopping
  • An on-site VIP Host


We also gave out other prizes including Moondance Jam tickets and Thincredible pizzas from Zaffiro's. In the end, Anne Peacock from Sauk Rapids was the winner! Anne is no less than a super-fan, admitting;

"When I heard that David Lee Roth had quit the band, I cried."

We're pretty sure Anne might be crying again on May 19th as she's escorted with her husband backstage at the X for the biggest comeback concert tour of the decade.
