October 4 marked the end of Van Halen’s 2015 North American tour, and the band made sure it was a night to remember.

Van Halen took the stage at the Hollywood Bowl for two nights, October 2 and 4, returning to Los Angeles, where they kicked off the tour on March 30 with a performance on Hollywood Boulevard that was broadcast on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

As always, the highlight of the show was Eddie Van Halen shredding extensively for close to 10 minutes, solo onstage. You can watch his fretboard pyrotechnics in the excellent fan-shot video below, which also includes the band’s segue into “You Really Got Me,” the Kinks hit they covered on their 1978 self-titled debut.

We will keep you updated with more Van Halen news as they reveal their next move.
