Throwback Concert: Van Halen at The XL Center 1991

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1991!

That year PLR welcomed Van Halen at Hartford’s XL Center (then called Hartford Civic Center). Van Halen hit the road for its “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” Tour and brought special guest Alice In Chains with them. Van Halen was supporting its ninth studio album, “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge,” which featured the hit songs Right Now, Top of the World and Poundcake.

Today we revisit Van Halen’s 1991 concert in Hartford…
