Back in 1984, MTV ran a promotion called “Lost Weekend” where one lucky fan would win a 48 hour party with the guys in Van Halen! According to a story from Ultimate Classic Rock, this will be the basis of a new 14 minute documentary that is set to debut in theaters this weekend with a very limited release.
I can’t imagine partying with Van Halen during their peek in 1984…and the winner Kurt Jefferies says the two day party left him “in recovery and shock for many days afterwards.”
Be sure to be looking for this to be heading to streaming services in the future. Click here for the full story.
