FREE Tickets to See Van Halen at Amway Center

Van Halen is Coming!

You can win tickets to see Van Halen for free at Amway Center Next Month!

Seriously. We’re not kidding. We’re giving away a pair of tickets to see Van Halen (yeah, you know ’em) live in concert at Amway Center on April 12th.

No catch*. You don’t even have to be a California Girl (see what we did there?).

To enter, simply leave us a comment here in this post about why you’d like to win the free tickets. Leaving a comment does not ensure a win. Those leaving a comment will be included in a random drawing.

Increase your winning chance! If you’re a die-hard Van Halen fan and want to increase your chance of winning, make a video of yourself jumping 80’s style, or take a picture of yourself jumping (or just submit an old one). We’ll post it on the blog for all of our readers to see. Submitting a video or photo to pulseofcentralflorida@mail.com will give you two entries into the random drawing. Perhaps this will give you a little inspiration?


Tweeting is not required nor does it increase your chance of winning. However, if you chose to Tweet about this contest please include the hashtag #VHNA2012.

Contest runs through 6pm (EST) on April 3rd, and winners will be announced by 6pm the following day. Good luck! Additional details about the Van Halen tour are available here.

*OK, tiny catch. Only open to U.S. residents. Also, we have no input as to where the seating is located.

    Even though I missed the cutoff, I just sent you an email with several Fun fan-made VH videos… Three of which were made in the 80’s!!!

    Damn! Evidently I just missed the chance to win. The last time I saw David Lee Roth I peed in the urinal right after him at the Troubadour in LA. I want to do that again

      Yeah, 6pm was the cutoff. Sorry about that! But you’ve still got a great story!

    I gotta see these guys back together. And this is going to bring back all those memories from the ’80’s.

    I am interested to see the gang and how well they still are together. Man, can I bring back some of those ’80’s memories??

    I never got to see Van Halen in the day. I have a feeling this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see DLR & EVH performing together on stage. I have to say seeing Kool & The Gang would be as cool as well. You can never go wrong with the 80s bands.

    Hey guys– My son Nicholas has been downloading a ton of classic rock onto his laptop including Van Halen. I would LOVE to surprise him and take him to the show. Being a drummer himself he would be amazed to see a real classic rock drummer in action!

    Would definitely love to see them as it just seemed that I never got the chance yet. Of course, I probably won’t now as this system is not letting me submit a comment!! LOL!!

    My wife is pregnant and she is a huge VH fan. I’d love to surprise her with tickets to the show. We visit PofCF daily and have made several of our friends daily readers. It would be an honor to attend the show and sing along with Diamond Dave!

    My husband has been talking about this concert since he first heard that Van Halen was coming…of course I told him to go and have a great time seeing his favorite band…He has decided we can not afford it and will not be going…what a great surprise if I could win him the tickets to see Van Halen!!!

    A Different Kind of Truth is the best rock and roll album in 20 years. Van Halen reigns and with Dave on board it’s over the top . I’m sure you all agree a hardcore fan like me deserves the tics.
    Peace out and good luck everybody !!!!!

    I would love to win these for my soul mate as he constantly has to deal with my Madonna/LadyGaga/Florence obsession. What’s fair is fair. I also own some pink spandex leggings that could use one more wear!

    I just bought a new can of AquaNet and I have the urge to tease my hair. And oh yeah, Van Halen Rocks!

      That’s hilarious, Kathryn! Let’s hope nobody lights a match around you.

    I would love to win these tickets to give to my husband. Prayed for a guitar playing husband (thinking acoustic singer/songwriter) and got one, but he’s more of a shredder. I would win best wife ever award.

    I’ve been wanting to see Van Halen since not being able to go see the 1984 Tour when I was in junior high. Let’s make this happen for me, please?

    I would love to see Van Halen live. It would be great to see Eddie & his son perform together on stage.
